For some, a quick crack of the fingers is a satisfying little pastime. For others, it is extremely uncomfortable and should never be done in public, or indeed in private. Depending on which camp you belong to, Dona-Maria Mbassat’s body crack*ng eff*rts represent the absolute peak of satisfaction/discomfort. Dona-Maria from Morganville, New Jersey, US shared a video of herself on TikTok, crack*ng her ‘entire body’ – it has been viewed more than 15 million times.
Explaining the inspiration behind the crack*ng clip, she said: “I was home on a Saturday night and out of nowhere I just got the urge to cr-ck my entire body and record it. “I was just bored and thought it’d be funny to record my whole process of how I cr*ck all of my bones and I didn’t expect anybody to see it even after posting it cause I thought it was stupid.” But while you may have found the video a pa!nful experience, fear not, Dona-Maria was not h*rt at all in the making of the viral vid.
She said: “It wasn’t and isn’t pa*nful at all. “I do it everyday multiple times throughout the day actually and have been doing it for a while – it feels really good actually and I will continue to do it.”
But while the thought of someone deriving physical pleasure from tugg!ng on their own fingers may be a little unsettling, the video has done wonders for Dona-Maria’s TikTok following. She said: “I am very thankful because, at the time, I had 11k followers on TikTok and now I’m close to 120k, just from that one video going viral which is so crazy to think about. But before you go seeking viral fame by crack!ng your body parts, you may want to learn a b*t about the story of Josh Hader.
The dad-of-two suffered a stroke after crack*ng his neck so hard that he tore an artery. “The moment I heard the pop, everything on my left side started to go numb,” Josh, from Guthrie, Oklahoma, told KOCO 5 News.
“I got up and tried to get an ice pack from the fridge, and I remember I couldn’t walk straight.” While Josh thankfully survived the str*ke, it did cause a great deal of damage. Along with vision problems for a few days and pa*nful hiccups that lasted a week and a half, Josh still struggles to walk – having joked in a Facebook post: “I learned that I can still walk (although not as good as my one-year-old son).”
