YouTube vloggers are stacking layers upon layers of peanut butter, lasagna and so many other foods.
One of the craziest viral video series dominating YouTube right now is the beauty vlogger community's "100 Layers" challenge. Creators all across the platform have, for weeks, been uploading wild videos of themselves applying 100 coats of beauty products—everything from nail polish (the #PolishMountain video currently has more than 15 million views) to foundation (with super-creepy results—this top video has been watched 9 million times) to liquid lipstick (spoiler: it turns into gooey crust—this demo has been watched 13 million times). With this level of unprecedented, runaway success, it was only a matter of time before the 100 layers concept started to seep into other corners of the internet.
This week, food vloggers have started to build 100 layers videos of their own—and the results have been, uh, interesting. From 100-slice American cheese grilled cheese sandwiches to intense applications of fondant to gooey buttercream and peanut butter, there's something for every food obsessive.
