Video: Man Breaks TikTok With Can of WD-50. Yes, WD-50
"If it's on the internet, it must be true". The phrase we all joke about, but still some people actually believe it. With that being said, I find it hilarious when people take advantage of that little jewel of information. With technology that can "deep fake" a celebrity's face on your face, and ways to manipulate video at home with technology that is used in the movie industry. All of these tools at a consumer's fingertips make for the idea that you just can't trust anything you see on the internet.
Introducing TikTok's @actually.average. His video starts off with a beautiful 3-D model of a V8 engine cut in half that when it spins, mimics the inside of an engine. He then goes on to spin the model up with a drill to make it go faster. After a test run, he makes the claim that he is then going to spray WD-50 on the half engine to see if that has any impact on the model engine. Yes, WD-50. That's when every man and dad in the world just loses their mind!
What is WD-50, does WD-50 exist, where do you even get WD-50? The responses in the video were not how cool the model was or that it's cool to see it move around. All of the responses are basically what the heck is WD-50?
Obviously, anything beyond 40 doesn't exist. I'll spare you the boring details, but WD-40 stands for "Water Displacement, 40th formula". The product was made to lubricate, displace water, prevent rust, and penetrate. After being used heavily in the workforce, it was found to be useful in the non-commercial world as well.
Obviously, the internet being the internet, some are jumping all over the chance to take the joke even further by making their own cans of various levels of "WD". The funny thing is that when the video came out, searches for "WD-50" went a little crazy on Google.
Just don't always believe what you read or see on the internet, except this post because I actually researched it.
