A student from Treforest has devised a new, positive kind of nomination game as an alternative to the online drinking game craze 'NekNomination'.
The 'NekNomination' game - where people are nominated to post a video of themselves drinking a pint of alcohol before nominating someone else to do the same - has been linked to the deaths of two men from Ireland.
But Luke Davies from Treforest has devised an alternative called 'Pick n Play', in which people can start by playing their guitar or other instruments and then nominate others to do the same, before uploading their videos to Facebook.
Nicole Reyes' mother Jeanette Clements has spoken to ITV News following the sentence.
– Jeanette Clements, Nicole Reyes' mother
I have told [Nicole] to keep her chin up. I really did believe she would be coming home with me this week. We are going to appeal.
She has problems with her kidneys. She is ill and needs medical help. I don't think she's going to cope in that prison.
Cardiff woman Nicole Reyes has been jailed for 12 years for the voluntary homicide of her husband in the Dominican Republic.
The 38-year-old, from the Rumney part of the city, was involved in a road collision with her husband Jorge, a Dominican national, in July 2012. The pair were living together on the island at the time.
Ms Reyes - who has always denied the charge against her - was arrested at the scene and has been held in prison ever since.
The sentence was passed following a two-and-a-half-hour hearing on the Puerto Plata part of the island earlier today.
Nicole Reyes' mother, Jeanette Clements, and stepfather Mike, were present in court. Mrs Clements says that the family intend to appeal the verdict and are meeting with the British Embassy.
The trial of a Cardiff woman imprisoned in the Dominican Republic for 18 months is due to start today.
Nicole Reyes, from Rumney, was arrested two years ago when her 38-year-old husband Jorge died in a car crash on the island.
She was jailed without a trial but both her and her family have always protested her innocence.

Welsh Secretary David Jones joined the Prime Minister and NATO's Secretary General for today's talks in Downing Street. The meeting comes ahead of the next NATO summit which is being held in Newport in September.
The Prime Minister has met NATO's Secretary General ahead of the summit to be held in Newport in September. According to a Downing Street spokesperson, Anders Fogh Rasmussen said hosting the summit showed 'commitment to the alliance from the UK.'
The spokesperson said David Cameron and the Secretary General also agreed what the aim of the summit will be:
The two leaders agreed that a key focus of the summit would be the future role of NATO in an uncertain world. In this context, they discussed the importance of applying the lessons learnt and capabilities developed from missions in the Balkans, Iraq and Afghanistan and how NATO could play a role in stabilising countries and preventing conflict in the future. They also discussed the situation in Afghanistan, ahead of presidential elections this spring and ISAF drawdown at the end of the year.
– Downing Street spokesman
The PM highlighted the work this government has done to increase public recognition and support for our armed forces and veterans through the Armed Forces Covenant. He suggested that we would be keen to share our experience in this area with more NATO countries. They also discussed the important role of NATO’s maritime forces and the need to effectively deal with cyber threats in the future. They agreed that the summit should reaffirm NATO’S relevance as the bedrock of transatlantic collective defence capability.
The former cabinet minister, Peter Hain, has questioned whether or not a long-held aim for peace in the Middle East is achievable. He makes the remarks in a public lecture at Swansea University tonight.
Speaking as a former minister with responsibility for the Middle East, the Neath MP says the 'two-state solution' of a separate Israel and Palestine existing side by side is looking increasingly unlikely because of sustained Israeli settlement on land earmarked for a possible Palestinian state.
And he says it may be time to consider an alternative solution: a single state with Israelis and Palestinians given equal rights.
I am both a long standing supporter of the Palestinian cause and a friend of Israel. As a British Minister for the Middle East in 1999-2001 I worked closely with both Israeli and Palestinian leaders. My record of fighting apartheid, racism and anti-Semitism is long and recognised.
For two decades I have favoured a two-state solution as the best plan for peace and the fairest outcome, one backed by the US, the United Nations, the European Union and all 22 countries of the Arab League. Officially, it’s the stated policy of the current Israeli government and of the Palestinian Authority.
– Peter Hain MP
But I am increasingly unsure about whether it’s still achievable – mainly because, as time has marched on, and successive negotiating initiatives have come and gone, the land earmarked for a viable Palestinian state has been remorselessly occupied by Israeli settlers.
