It's not working for me either.

The link above seems to have merged two links together (or the article title and the link have been merged together), but if you just take the second half, it works:

It's things like this that make me feel old.  Why would you eat a Tide pod?

But I do miss Tide!  :)

It's the fault of You Tube.  It started as a joke comment about how yummy they looked, then people started cooking them on pizzas for a joke, then the inevitable next step happened. 
You Tube is now full of people wanting attention so they can earn some money.  A good example is the Clown who jumped from Tower Bridge.  He lived but was not happy at the end.
