A few weeks ago, a metal fan became the star of that side of the Internet by urinating into his own mouth amidst of a Trash Talk
gig in Melbourne, Australia.
As expected, the crowd was caught in a state of shock. The photo had initially surfaced on Reddit and had everyone wondering why on Earth would anyone do that. "It went everywhere, all down his shirt and in his hair, he seriously went for like a solid minute,"
one of the witnesses said. "It was feral. And yes he just went on like nothing happened afterwards, it was one of the funniest/strangest/most disgusting and confusing things I've ever seen in my life."
But the worst part is, urinating into own mouth is apparently a thing among skaters in Australia. As Vice
reports, the disturbing phenomenon even has a name - bubbling.
And according to skater Troy West
, the trend has further been spread from Australia to Europe through his own skating tours. "It's huge in Australia. It's part of our everyday life. My dad actually taught me how to do it when I was a kid,"
he said. "I was on tour in Austria, and this other skater, Frido, asked me if I would drink my own p-ss for $136. So I explained that it's common practice in Oz, and I did it right there and then, and then again later by some lake in Italy. It took Frido a few days to master the art, though - he had a weak flow,"
The point of the whole thing? "Skaters like to provoke reactions from laymen, I guess."
So we just have to ask UG users from Australia - is this really a thing? And if so, wtf?
