Teens Are Now Staging Their Own Kidnappings To Get Out Of Zoom Lectures, Because Of Course They Are

This year has been extra in pretty much every sense of the word and, with the arrival of autumn, 2020 shows no sign of slowing down.

In keeping with the ever increasing madness, a trend has emerged among high school and college students: staging their own kidnapping during Zoom classes.

Confused? Let us enlighten you.

Two people in hooded sweatshirts and ski masks appeared and forcibly grabbed the man in the center frame out of his chair. Eventually, the lecturer interrupted the session to say, "Did you guys just see Tyler get kidnapped?"

Naturally, these videos are popping up all across the internet.






A TikTok account called @Zoomnappers is dedicated to these false kidnapping videos.

People are thankfully viewing them with good humor.



The trend has some people worried that it may start actually happening and nobody will be around to make sure the "victim" is okay.





While this is an unexpected fun moment for 2020, it does have the potential to turn dangerous.

Hopefully this won't become a case of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf."
