Having presumably grown bored of ingesting tide pods, some millennials are now taking part in the latest social media craze – microwaving aluminium foil in an attempt to create a shiny ball. Yes, really. I can’t make this up. The trend started after a video in which a Japanese YouTuber polishes a silver ball to make it extra reflective and shiny went viral. Any fool knows that aluminium foil is not for balls, it should only be used for hats, chicken sandwiches and alien deflection shields. Dahhh!
