In the latest episode of Clout Made Me Do It, a man named Len Martin has attempted the Gorilla Glue Challenge, and sent himself to the ER in doing so.
So we’ve had the Toilet Seat Challenge and now we have the….Gorilla Glue Challenge? Please don’t make this a thing.
Tessica Brown used Gorilla Glue on her hair instead of hairspray, and ended up in the ER, still unable to remove it. Now she’s even reportedly thinking of taking legal action.
What should be a cautionary tale however, became a ‘how to’ video for Len Martin who attempted it himself after, albeit slightly different.
Len Martin’s Gorilla Glue Challenge
You’d think a video like the Gorilla Glue one wouldn’t need a ‘don’t try this at home’ warning, but clearly it did. Len Martin claims he didn’t think the Gorilla Glue situation was as serious as Tessica was making it out to be, so he tried it himself.
Believing he could glue a cup to his lip using it then lick it off, he tried exactly that, but ended up at the ER. Admittedly, there are no clips of the man actually with the cup stuck, but he did film himself putting it up to his lip after applying a Gorilla Glue bottle to it.
Sharing the video to his Instagram he captioned it: “I thought that chick with the gorilla glue was making that story up…but no..its real… I don’t know why I tried it..now they talking bout cutting the tip of my lips off in surgery…yall pray for me.”
The second image shows him in the hospital with a cup round his mouth. Len Martin claims the hospital removed it but that if it doesn’t heal well, he will need surgery to remove his lip.
“Did you see what the lady did with the gorilla glue on her hair? I thought she was playing around. I didn’t think it was that serious, that gorilla glue did all of that. I was trying to show people that it wasn’t as serious as she was making it to be. I put gorilla glue in a cup, place it on my mouth for a few seconds and started to lick it off, but that didn’t work,” he said to Fox8.
Who is Len Martin?
37-year-old Len Martin is an aspiring rapper from Louisiana. However, you may recognise him from a previous viral video— this aint his first rodeo!
In 2019, Len went viral for the Ice Cream Challenge, and even appeared on national TV to talk about it. After uploading a video in which he appeared to lick an ice cream cartoon and put it back, he was arrested for the act.
After, he managed to prove to police that he did in fact purchase the ice cream after the stunt. However, he was still charged with unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and publicity, and tampering with property.
