Chances are you saw some pretty crazy party tricks over the festive season.
But does this one top them all?
An alarming video has emerged of a mother appearing to swallow an entire backscratcher.
The minute-long clip opens with relatives giggling intensely as she stuffs the stick down her throat.
‘Jesus Christ,’ one girl is heard saying.
But all is not what it seems.
A likely explanation behind the illusion is that the backscratcher is collapsible and the performer pushed it against her teeth or tongue to make it smaller.
