The three second video is straight-forward and shows what appears to be someone doing a card trick with the words "Honey" written across the screen.

But shortly after watching the video, iPhone users are reporting that their phone becomes sluggish and eventually unresponsive.

YouTuber EverythingApplePro has broken down what happens when you watch the video and it's well worth a look.

The video is hosted on VKontakte, which is the Russian version of Facebook and results in you having to do a hard reset on your iPhone to regain the full use of your device.

IPhone users can do this by holding down the Home and Power buttons at the same time. While the newer iPhone 7 users must hold the power and volume buttons at the same time.
