An unusual game at a California mall has TikTok users wondering how they can get in on the fun.
On March 9, a user by the handle divine.bto shared a clip in which an unidentified child takes part in a “human claw” game that was reportedly found at Plaza West Covina. The boy is slowly lowered into a pit of stuffed toys before he picks up a stuffed Pink Panther and is lifted away.
