ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER internet trend to make you want to throw yourself off the edge of the world.

“Phone pinching” is the new craze taking over social media and involves pinching the edge of your phone and dangling it over dangerous places.

Like so.

The anxiety-inducing practice appears to have been originated by the band Twenty One Pilots.

Here they are showing absolutely no regard for their phones whatsoever.

Whatever, guys.

Don’t come crying to us when you smash your iPhones.
