In the viral video, eight men split into two groups and compete to drive nails into a wooden block given to them. One player each from both groups runs up and hits this nail with a hammer, after which the nail goes in a little. The other then runs towards the log to hit the team. In this way the contestants take turns in hitting the team and the team whose nail goes in completely is declared the winner. The race to win the competition makes everyone laugh. Called ‘Nagelfalcon’ in Germany, people have demanded that the sport be included in the Olympics.
The video was first shared on TikTok by a user named Woody and Kleinyl, and has since been shared on other social media platforms. The video has so far received over 3.5 million views and over 1 lakh likes on Twitter.
