The week is over, people. We made it. But before I run home to Netflix and my cat (hi, Lola!), I’m leaving you with perhaps the most gruesome pimple-popping video I’ve ever laid eyes on. Now, listen, I can stomach Dr. Pimple Popper’s “Mama Squishy” cyst-removal clips and I’m okay with the deep, crater-like blackheads extractions. But this, this is different. This is just straight-up borderline horror film-type shit. Allow me to explain.
About an hour ago, I came across this (again, disgusting) clip of a man popping what appears to be a cyst (no, it’s not a zit!) on the tip of his chin in a video on the Daily Mail. And after tuning in to the experience for a second time (all while holding back the bile in the back of my throat), I figured the world, well, the Internet needed this nasty experience in their lives, too. Because what won’t kill you only makes you stronger, right?
Anyway, so I watched the full two-and-a-half-minute video, which features a man extracting (ok, fine, violently squeezing) puss (and “plasma?!,” according to the popper) out of a knob the size of a “golf ball,” which claimed real estate on the bottom of his chin. And while the white goo is nauseating to see drip (more like shoot) from his face, perhaps the most traumatizing part of the whole experience was his reaction to the whole thing. And while viewers at home are probably holding back dry heaves as they watch, the man in the video also has a hard time holding back his lunch and pukes (a few times) in the process, all while screaming phrases like, “Oh lord, help me, Jesus,” “What the fuck is this, jelly?,” and my personal fave “Staph infection, here we come.” (Though, this might be true so don’t try this at home, please.)

Needless to say, this is a must-watch, if only for his reaction to the cyst-removal aftermath. Watch—if you dare—the full pimple-popping video, below, but tread lightly when viewing because this shit gets gross. (And again, please remember that you should never attempt extractions like this on your own. If you think you have a similar cyst situation, call your dermatologist to make an appointment.)
