A staged video depicting a woman inadvertently placing her toddler inside a refrigerator while engrossed in a phone call has gone viral, shedding light on the growing issue of smartphone addiction. The video, shared on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) with the caption “Horrible Addiction,” has amassed over 3.9 lakh views.

In the staged scenario, the woman, absorbed in her phone conversation, momentarily places vegetables in the refrigerator but inadvertently places her child inside before closing the door. Later, her husband discovers the child missing and, upon hearing noises from the fridge, opens it to rescue the toddler.

While the video sparked discussions about the dangers of smartphone addiction and neglecting childcare responsibilities, some users questioned its authenticity, suggesting it appeared staged. Regardless, the video reignited conversations about the pervasive influence of smartphones on daily life and parenting.

This incident echoes a similar viral video from July 2023, where a woman remained rooted to a stalled escalator, fixated on her phone while oblivious to her surroundings. The video garnered over 12 lakh likes and prompted discussions about the hazards of distracted smartphone use in public spaces.

Commenters expressed concern over the lack of awareness and attentiveness caused by smartphone addiction, highlighting the need for individuals to prioritize their surroundings over digital distractions.
