The internet has no shortage of videos where people display their talent. While some of the footages are fun to watch, a lot of them raises concerns among netizens as regards to safety.
One such clip of a woman showing some dangerous aerobic moves on a street lamp post is the newest addition to the category of ‘what were they thinking!’ videos.
Uploaded on Twitter by Next Level Skills, the video displays a woman sporting a black dress and heels walking up to a lamp post. As the video goes on, she takes off her shoes and climbs on the lamp post. She then starts performing aerobics on an iron rod sticking out from the post.
While the woman’s flexibility and core strength deserved a clap, people were concerned about the safety of the stunt.

Please don't try this at home or even at public places, the streetlights are in public place and are public property, the risks involved are much higher it can cost you your life / fatal accident and many cause fatal injuries / if caught by the law it's bad for your carrier— INDRA (@BJPk7INDRAJIT) August 21, 2022

I keep worrying that the bar is going to snap. Really, I don't think they're made for that.— Back Page Guy NYDN (@BackPageGuyNYDN) August 21, 2022
Many YouTubers and even ordinary citizens are increasingly indulging in dangerous and sometimes stupid acts in the hope of getting their videos viral.
They shamelessly cross the limit of decency and put their lives in danger. They even end up encouraging others to indulge in these unlawful activities.
