A ‘fake’ craze propagated by Australian skaters has taken an ironic twist by genuinely catching on with people around the world 'bubbling' for fun.

Bubbling allegedly began with a picture of a young man urinating in his own mouth at a rock concert.

Bubbling, which involves men peeing in their own mouths and taking a photo, was described as being “endemic” by Australian skater Troy West in an interview with Vice Magazine.

Sources say the originally fake craze could now become the new Neknomination.

Neknomination was an online craze which saw young people the world over chugging alcohol on camera and nominating others to do so.  

It went viral, causing people to eventually drink goldfish, insects and mice in order to seem extreme. 

Several people died as a result of the drinking phenomenon.

Although bubbling is less dangerous than imbibing litres of alcohol, it is quite disgusting and doctors recommend against drinking your pee.

“Todd Carney should not of been sacked.So show your support by doing it and we will post it”, the pages states.

Carney described the incident as “just a prank’ and promoting ‘bubbling’ was incidental.

"The boys had seen me mucking around and doing it before," he said.
