Watch What Happens When a Married Couple Handcuffs Themselves Together for 24 Hours

Couple spent 24 hours handcuffed to each other, and they deserve a bravery medal

Ned and Ariel, BuzzFeed's guinea pig couple, agreed to remain handcuffed to each other for 24 long hours, and the resulting video appears to be hitting home with viewers in a big way. However, I don't think it's because anyone's enjoying what's going on in those six and a half minutes of compressed relationship struggles (least of all me). I think it's because the challenge is like something you might see on Fear Factor — incredibly horrific, but you can't look away because it's impossible to believe people would subject themselves to such an experience.
