A shocking new trend called ‘bubbling’ has started cropping up on the Internet.

In case you weren’t aware, ‘bubbling’ involves the daft act of urinating in your own mouth, taking a picture and posting it online.

The ‘trend’ was reportedly started by skateboarding types in Australia- which incidently is also where the #NeckNomination trend first took off.

One skater told VICE: “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 added: “It’s a pretty big statement. Try it and find the meaning yourself.”

‘Bubbling’ cost the rugby player his $3 million a year contract, which goes to show how serious people are taking the spreading trend.

Carney later said: “The boys had seen me mucking around and doing it before.”
