I'm 2 years away from kicking in the door of 40, and I'd like to think in my 38 years of life on this planet, that I have plenty of common sense to realize that for instance, eating a Tide Pod meant to chemically clean my laundry is a terrible idea, or dousing myself in an accelerant and lighting my body on fire...for a video...might possibly kill me. I don't need instruction or warning for this, because again, common sense.
We unfortunately don't all share in this sentiment.
Case in point, some random internet person (because stories that start that way ALWAYS end well) decided that instead of the glue which one can buy for the purposes of gluing down and securing a wig temporarily to ones head, she would instead just trot on over to her trusty can of Gorilla Glue Spray and give that a whiz all over her scalp. In case you are unaware of this product, it is a super glue. It is not cleverly disguised with a pair of glasses like Superman where it could fool any one of us, but rather a bright orange bottle that let's you know on the cover that this is meant to secure say concrete to a sidewalk. At 40, Tessica Brown thought this was a great idea...at 40!
So apparently an entire month later, the wig hair and her actual hair were still cemented together to her scalp. She showed herself in an angsty video applying shampoo, and the shampoo just wiped off like Windex to a mirror. She even took her nails to the hair as one would do while washing their scalp, and NOTHING was moving. It's actually horrifying to see and think that that has been that way for a month.
So after of course sharing this video with the world, she admittedly embarrassed, decided to go to the ER. The ER actually gave her acetone, as in the stuff used to get nail polish off ones nails, to apply to her scalp to try to loosen the stuff, and they told her we can help you but it will take a good 20 hours or so to soak in this stuff and they can hopefully get it off, and she said....NOPE....and went home with a care package of acetone and her helmet hair still firmly solidified so she could then of course, go home and film a reaction video recounting her tale and a follow up of her sister STILL trying to get the stuff out of her hair.
And the dumb, get dumber....so in her continued clear brilliance, she thinks to herself, maybe she should sue the Gorilla Glue company, who at this point is getting great free press because their product clearly works on people too. Apparently she wants compensation and the world to know that products found in a hardware store are not suitable for use on one's body even though the product already says that but just for her own knowledge the company issued a statement repeating LOUDLY so the dumb people in the back could hear, that their product is meant for crafts, home and auto, office, and wood like it says on their damn can and not for skin, eyes, or clothing.They also added that she should STICK to using products meant for her hair (they didn't actually say that last part, but there are so many great puns they should use in court if it gets that far).
In case you're wondering, and I knew you were, she has a Go Fund Me which as I type has raised around $13,000. Twenty-seven plus donors would rather fund this woman than say a child starving of hunger, or buy PPE for front line workers, or save for their own future during this pandemic.
