Kids CAN do astonishing things! The AV Club has introduced the world to this brave and probably seriously injured teenager who tortured himself to help Ariana Grande with her public speaking. He made a video in which he ate a hot pepper every time Ariana said “um” in an award acceptance speech. This is amusing at first, but then it veers into torture and (spoiler alert) ends with gagging. So, is it possible to completely burn out your taste buds so they’ll never come back? Does this child have the ability to taste anymore?
It was no joke. The kid wrote in the video caption:
“Words can’t not [sic] describe the amount of pain I experienced after turning the camera off.”
Hopefully Ariana sees this video and realizes the amount of pain the verbalization of her thought process is causing. Watch the poor boy, below.
