The Inbetweeners was blamed for inspiring 'logging' craze which caused people to defecate in swimming pools

The Inbetweeners was blamed for inspiring 'logging' craze which caused people to defecate in swimming pools

Cast your mind back to the heady days of 2014 and the release of the second Inbetweeners Movie. Why don't you familiarise yourself with it:

The cinematic spin-off of the hit series remains almost as well-quoted as the show itself.

For those of you who haven't seen it, it centres on Simon, Will and Neil's trip to Australia to see their mate Jay for a summer holiday.

However, as is ever the case with the hapless quartet, things don't go quite according to plan, with the group involved in all kinds of bizarre scrapes.

One of the scenes from the movie, though, aside from being one of the most memorable, was actually blamed at the time for starting something called the 'logging' craze at the time.

Those of you who've seen it will almost know immediately what I'm referring to, those who haven't, buckle up.

At one point in the film, the lads go to a waterpark, and Neil has a bit of an accident.

Just before Will sets off on a race down one of the slides, Neil accidentally relieves himself, with his mess flying down the shoot and hitting his mate in the face.

And according to some, the movie was blamed for a spate of copycat offences following its release.

Speaking to the Bath Chronicle at the time, travel expert Nick Harris said: "We have dealt with hundreds of cases where people have been left seriously ill.

"Some idiots think it is humorous to deliberately poo in a crowded pool and then sit back and watch the carnage unfold as people try to escape the pool like a panic scene from the film Jaws."

This grim news comes after fans shared their shock and disappointment that a recently resurfaced scene from the film didn’t make the final cut.

The scene sees Jay and Neil visit a Malia tattoo studio after agreeing to get each other’s names tattooed on them. Neil goes first, getting ‘Jay, Neil, Malia’ inked onto his back, but both teens are left dismayed when they realise the ‘J’ looks more like a ‘G’, prompting Jay to back out of the deal.

But in classic Neil fashion, he soon gets over his dismay when Jay promises to 'chip in' and get it changed into a tiger back home in the UK.

The clip has been shared avidly online and fans were quick to point out how funny the scene was.

"They should have kept this scene!", one user said.

While another pointed out: "That would have been the best scene. Why didn’t this scene make it into the movie? This is brilliant."
