College and university students have long lived up to their self-proclaimed expectations of doing some pretty random and crazy things for entertainment's sake. Though with the rise of social media, it seems students are willing to do anything for attention these days now more than ever.
The latest trend to come as a result is "brewfing" and unfortunately for all of us, the latest trend introduced into Canadian party culture is just as stupid as it sounds.
If you aren't sure what brewfing is, it's the term for those videos that show up on your Explore page on Instagram of college boys throwing themselves off of the roof of their frat house, onto a Walmart folding table. It sounds really crazy, but yes, this is a real thing that Canadian students are doing.

While the trend shows no signs of slowing down, it definitely shows that student party culture has reached new heights in an age where everything is documented on social media. Where students are so desperate to get featured on an Instagram page they'll literally jump off a building to do it.
