A woman has shared a video of herself trying out a seemingly unlikely hack that she claims will 'cure' a hangover in 30 seconds flat.
Of course, what you're meant to do is just limit yourself to a few bevvies and drink water in between each alcoholic tipple.
But what are you supposed to do when the night's so good you get a bit carried away? Dunk your head in a bowl of ice cold water, apparently. Take a look:
Now, dunking your head into an ice bucket might not be the first thing you'd want to do on a hangover, but let it be known that the hack is backed by the experts.
In fact, it started doing the rounds on social media after Dr Chris Jackson, a doctor of pharmacy from Texas who has earned more than 123,000 TikTok followers thanks his pearls of medical wisdom, shared the hack.
In a now-viral video of it in action, a hungover woman named Ashley can be seen dunking her head into a bowl filled with ice cold water as the voiceover advises anyone watching to keep their head in for as long as possible.
"Oh my gosh," she said, clearly feeling the cold, before deciding to dunk her head in again.
She then looks around, wondering if her hangover has actually gone.
The video ends apparently hinting at the hack's success when she declares: "I feel amazing."
Unsurprisingly, TikTok users had a lot to say about the hack - which has been viewed almost 20 million times - in the comments section.
One elaborated: "pro tip: this is also good for panic and anxiety attacks! or just overall meltdowns (if you don't feel like it may overwhelm you even more)."
"I feel like I'd puke in the ice," remarked a second while a third added: "This makes so much sense. I used to always say 'I wanna jump in a pool' when violently hungover and sometimes did if available."
Ashley elaborated on how she really felt in the comments section, writing: "Felt awake and alert, looked like all the pores on mg face disappeared, and golly all my nausea was gone [sic]."
While I'm normally a skeptic when it comes to these things, I'm half tempted to give it a whirl myself the next time I wake up with a hangover.
What about you?
