If you choose to click ‘play’ on the video below what you’re going to see is a Chinese man from Shenyang, Liaoning Province chugging a mason jar full of live animals. He takes a jar of live goldfish, tadpoles, and frogs, he tips that jar into his mouth, and he chugs them all down into his belly. Now that you know what you’re getting yourself into let’s check it out:
I didn’t think that it would be easy to watch this video but I certainly didn’t expect my stomach to react the way it did. I’ve always been much more affected by smells than I ever was by disgusting visuals. I suppose the writing was on the wall for me though, way back when I was a kid and I watched Rocky Balboa swallow raw eggs while training to fight Apollo Creed I’m pretty sure I gagged a little bit, I might’ve thrown up in my mouth but I cannot confirm or deny that. I was young, and I couldn’t even begin to fathom why someone would just drink (eat?) raw eggs, my dad later explained that it was an old school method of training that boxers would use to ingest large amounts of protein (it’s still fucking gross).
Flash forward to this video and I’m pretty sure I felt my stomach shift when he started drinking those frogs. Something about that dude swallowing live goldfish just did not agree with my belly, and I nearly lost my morning coffee. I’ll live though, and for my next blogging effort I might even toss up some Dr. Pimple Popper footage.
Before we get to that though let’s check out that chug once more in GIF:
NOPE. Not even once.
