    I feel like if he continues to do challenges like this, he might actually have problems when hes older with his mental health and maybe even physical health... I dont think it's a good idea to be extreme all the time

    Just watching this freaks me out. I happen to be traumatized of elevators, after my 5 year old self survived a free falling elevator. Anyone else freaked out about elevators?
