One thirsty man in need of a drink went to extreme lengths to quench his thirst.
A video shared on Instagram by @younglildelty shows him taking a sip of hand sanitiser. He is seen opening the bottle filled with the blue disinfectant liquid and taking a drink to which he squirms at the imaginably bitter taste.
According to the Texas Medical Centre, people with substance abuse issues have deliberately ingested hand sanitiser for its high alcohol content.

The schoolkids (from an unnamed school) took their video to the popular social networking platform TikTok.
The short video clip was shared by @OarabileMolete and the clip is going viral among South Africans. According to comments, it seems the kids are enrolled at one of the top high schools in the Free State, Navalsig in the city of Bloemfontein.
In the video, the kids are seen dancing to an Amapiano song, Mmapula by Busta 929, and they are very entertaining.
