Why is Huffing Glue Cool Again?
& what Kayla Itsines, Gabby Epstein, Josh Heuston and Bostik have to say about this new craze sweeping the nation.
Read the tabloids and you'll be lead to believe that chroming is back in a big way. Is it true? And if so, what is it about huffing a big bag of clag thats so appealing to today's youngers? Here at Ballistic Insides, we decided to hit the streets and get to the bottom of this new trend.
And by 'the streets', we mean virtually penetrating the orifices of the internet to get to the bottom of why putting your snoz in a big bag of uhu is the new ‘it’ thing to do.
First off, what is "huffing glue"?
"Inhalants are a broad range of household and industrial chemicals whose volatile vapors or pressurized gases can be concentrated and breathed in via the nose or mouth to produce intoxication (called "getting high" in slang). Inhaling can cause drowsiness, unconsciousness, asphyxia, and cardiac arrhythmia"
Neat. So who the shit can help me here? Well, who knows better about the youth of today than:
It just makes logical sense to seek the advice of influencers. Who could possibly give better advice than the good looking? They're historically the ones doing the best thinking. Think Plato, Einstein, Rove. All good looking and all incredible thinkers.
So without further ado, its time to contact some of Australians biggest influencers and ask why the kids are deciding to ‘dust the old brown bag’ again.
I thought it best to start with the biggest fish in the pond, Kayla Itsines. Kayla is Australia's most popular influencer and has amassed 11.8 million followers using fitness as her puller. Surely Kayla can give some insight into the glue sniffing movement thats rapidly spreading across the united states of Aus.
No response. I suppose when you have that many millions of followers you're getting too many glue sniffing messages to respond to them all.
JOSH HEUSTON– Instagram followers 500k
Radio Silence. Looks like Josh doesn't get down with a sack of Bostik either. Thats alright, lets pick ourselves up and try again.
GABBY EPSTEIN. Instagram followers: 2.2 million
Nothing. Our beacons of light (influencers), don't seem to be having a bar. Maybe these people aren't the anchors of culture we think they are? So I decided to reach out to Bostik, parent company of ‘Clag glue’ to seek a professional opinion
Bostik (Clag Glue) – 900 followers
No fucking dice. Not a peep. What a highly disappointing crusade. Will i ever get to understand why huffing glue is cool again? There's only one place you turn when your options are running thin. The last vestige of hope in an otherwise hopeless world:
Yahoo answers. Thank you. You always deliver. The right wing MAGA political supporters are responsible for the glue sniffing? Of course they are. Thanks for nothing influencers.
