When it comes to trends that have taken the internet by storm, one of the most recent and unexpected is the viral trend of “Jacob Elordi’s Bathwater” candles. The trend originates from a scene in the movie Saltburn, where Elordi’s character is seen in a bathtub, leading to a shocking moment where another character, Oliver (Barry Keoghan), drinks the bathwater.
