With increasing users of SNS (Social Network Service), the video known as 'couple play' has been popular recently. People imitate the scene of couple play in the video. However, some of them failed to reproduce some actions. We report a case of cervical spine fracture with 'couple play'. A 14-year-old female presented to the emergency department complaining of posterior neck pain. She had a history of trauma with 'couple play' three days ago. She had no neurologic deficit. Cervical spine x-ray and computed tomography showed spinous process fracture of the seventh cervical spine (clay-shoveler fracture). This case demonstrates the need for heightened awareness concerning videos containing dangerous actions that may be harmful when imitated. The authors believe that an institutional strategy for notification of the risks is needed.
