A kid’s toy now is a social media scandal.

People are taking photos of other people’s fidget spinners, pretending to fix the spinner, and then posting the fix to Twitter.

And a Twitter user has caught one of the fidget spinner-fixing video influencers in the act.

A composite video edited together footage and images of a number of fidget spinner fixes you’ve seen on social media. After the video, watch a tweet by @calpontawolf that explains how it was created:

Footage shows a girl photoshopping a white, black or gold fidget spinner onto a console. She sticks it in front of a red screen.

Other social media users decided to fix the toy by literally swapping out the black and gold spinner for a more traditional, colored one.

Today I fixed my 😂😂🤣 (and I just want to say that my child was too embarrassed by my speech to say that she was still okay with the red one 😩😩😂😂😩😂😂 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂) pic.twitter.com/ZnQAqXxxwo — Xenia (@xcqlira_) September 9, 2018

One of the fixers featured in the video, Alexandra Ramirez in Los Angeles, said in a tweet that she takes her fixes seriously.

Ramirez said she got her first fix when she was eight, or “pretty much.”

Some of the fixes on social media are so funny you may have to ask what was supposed to be on it. Others are so bad, some folks have joked that people are taking the fix-it syndrome too far.
