Teens have always participated in the latest trends in order to fit in with their peers, and whether it's the latest style of clothing, music or food product, teens will always follow the trends no matter how stupid.
The latest stupid trend sweeping through the teenage world is the banana peel challenge, where kids make like cartoons and literally slip on a banana peel.

The only difference is- teens aren't made of paint and ink, so they don't bounce back from a spill like a Looney Tunes character, and any trend that results in injuries becomes the subject of parental opposition.
As these videos show the #bananapeelchallenge usually isn't all that dangerous, but some teens won't stop until they've broken something for the sake of staying trendy.
