A mysterious Icelandic cooking oil is making the rounds on the Internet, and some people are wondering if it’s a scam.
The oil has been circulating for weeks on various social media sites and news sites, but it’s been hard to track down any information on its authenticity or origin.
Some people have posted images of the oil on Facebook and Reddit.
But, as Ars Technic’s James Hill points out, the image of the mysterious Icelandic oil is from a Reddit user with the handle “kronikkir,” and it was posted on the site in late March.
The user then made a video of themselves doing the trick and posted it to YouTube.
“I don’t think there’s a lot of information on it that I’m aware of, so I’ll leave it at that,” Hill says.
“It’s just a random person doing this,” he adds.
“It’s not a big deal.”
