I’m a bot.

Oh wow someone should just invent a type of bandaid shaped like that. I already thought of a great name to call it.
No, I haven’t been applying them wrong, they’ve been designed wrong!
I never thought to take the paper strips off *after* the cloth part goes over the affected area. I feel really dumb right now.
Hmm. Shallow and pedantic.
I didn’t know they discontinued butterfly bandaids which this is modeled after
No, we haven’t been applying them wrong – *you* have been using the wrong bandage.
You could just buy fingertip and knuckle bandages, way better than regular bandaids
Who uses bandaids?
Not so much of a pro tip, more common sense?
Seems like Band-Aid have been making Band-Aid wrong.
Yeah, because when my finger is dripping blood everywhere, I’ve got the time (and dexterity) to cut a bandaid just so.
His first attempt reminds me of those info commercials where they give a very shitty first try.
Been wearing Band-aids for over 50 years, and have always worn them the first way. I’ve never had a problem with them coming off.
This is nothing more than propaganda to sell more scissors.
Just because it works, does not mean it’s the right way. If you have to cut it with scissors, it obviously wasn’t designed to be used like that. Get different band-aids, they have ones designed for use on fingers.
Who has the time?
I think the real tip here is that most adhesive bandages are made to be cut without the adhesive gumming up scissors, so if you don’t have the right kind you could potentially make it fit better. But yeah, as pointed out, you could also just have a better supply of bandages.
Great, cannot wait to cut myself at work
When you realise your whole life has been a lie…
No, bandages have a manufacturing flaw if this is how they’re supposed to be used.
Cos when you’re bleeding, you reach for the scissors. Fighting a sharp object with a sharper one
By the time I cut the thing into pieces I’ll have bled to death
I find it odd they don’t even make an attempt to pull the second method off the finger like they did the first, “wrong” method.
The second bandaid on his finger joint is way too tight. You can already see the finer turning purple before the camera cuts. Fail hack again…
LPT: before applying a band-aid, go to a hospital and scrub-in
If I cut my finger or fingers at work I just wrap tissue then tape up until bleeding stops then take off and get on with it!! Band aids are for Pussys!!!
@ the twitter OP. *I* haven’t been applying them wrong, *they* have been making them wrong. If this is even the intended method of application.
This is why finger bandages already exist
In defense of this hack, it works really well in our elementary school. We can’t afford to buy knuckle and fingertip Band-Aids; as it is, we go through more than 3,000 bandages every school year. By modifying bandaids, we save about $100 a year.
I love the ridiculous 32kbps music. It’s so awful.
Ain’t nobody got time for that
That was a 20 seconds craft tbh.
When ever I cut myself I’m usually freaking out so I don’t have much time to cut the Band aid.
WHY DIDNT THEY TUG ON IT THE SECOND TIME?? THEY DIDNT EVEN PUT IT THROUGH THE TEST THIS WHOLE THING IS ABOUT
They actually have band aids that are specifically made for cuts on the finger.
When I’m bleeding, I don’t got no time for dat.
There’s no need to cut them if you put them on correctly in the first place. The first example was idiotic.
Get lost OP.
Cut my finger with scissors. Now what?
If they were meant to be installed thatt way, they would have been pre-cut.
I hope those scissors are very clean.
I just duct tape it so it won’t fall off
Odds are I probably cut myself with said scissors and that is why I need the band aid. No need to add more danger into the mix.
The background music in the video was pleasant
better than buying an overpriced box of super specific bandaids.
Ha! Saw this an hour ago, and just cut my finger while shaving…time to give it a go I guess…
Edit: worked well, thanks OP!
Oh if only you could buy boxes of bandages in all shapes and sizes. Including premade ones that work just like this. Oh, wait. You can!
I hate when people remove the adhesive cover before applying the bandage. Use the white flaps to apply the bandage, its faster and more sterile.
DUDE, my finger is BLEEDING SLIGHTLY! I don’t have time for *that!*
Or you could just buy the butterfly bandages.
I’m already bleeding. I don’t have time to cut a bandaid.
Anyway there called plasters!!! Band Aid is a company that makes Plasters!!!
I can’t wait for my next cut finger in order to try this out.
The scissors are the reason I’m hurt in the first place and they want me to use them again to cut my bandaid.
DIG butterfly band aid. So freaking obvious and awesome!
God, I didnt even do the wrong method right
For anyone wondering what that goofy song is like I was it’s [Kevin MacLeod ~ Gonna Start v2](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocw1yf7nHX8)
No thanks, I’m not going to take advice on how to apply a bandage from a “5 minute crafts” video.
What a glorious symphony, these ethereal notes makes me think that this is music from heaven.
There is nothing wrong with the first method.
Ha! that’s how I… Ow that’s the wrong way…
Well if I were competent enough to use scissors, I wouldn’t need the bandaid in the first place.
7/10 would watch again
They skipped the last step, where you draw a smiley face on the bandage.
This is a shit lifehack. Scissors are bacteria hoarders. Don’t cut your bandaids. Put them on properly instead of carefully laying it on top like he does just to show that he can pull it off.
And while we’re at it, buy proper bandaids. Those are absolute shit.
Cut my finger at a robotics competition. Couldn’t afford having the bandage come off because we were behind. Bandaid + Electrical tape. Faster and more secure. Plus I couldn’t cut that part of my hand again!
Cutting the sticky part in that way doesn’t seem to be very beneficial. It seems like it is actually reducing the surface area of the sticky part, making it MORE likely to come off…
