The internet just cannot stop watching people’s pimples being popped, their blackheads extracted and cysts excised – and every video that goes viral is more disgusting than the next.
In a video posted on Reddit — on the popular Popping subreddit — a user shares the latest cringe worthy extraction, which comes from a spa in China and features an insanely deep, connected network of blackheads in someone’s ear.
The Redditer who posted the video, TychaBrahe, introduced the clip with, "I never knew blackheads like this developed in ears until I saw the first of these. Now, I don't know what is more disturbing, that they exist or that they are CONNECTED."
The nearly 9-minute video shows the blackhead carefully being removed with a pair of pointed tip tweezers. Every time you think it’s over and the blackhead is cleared, there is more to be extracted, and the amounts just get larger and larger.
The amount in this person’s pores is significant; therefore there is something satisfying about seeing how much is collected in the person’s ear during the procedure. However, after the patient’s ears are painstakingly cleared, the anonymous person is left with two, large, bleeding holes, which show you just how massive this clog was.
The post got hundreds of commenters from the popping-obsessed Redditers. One user, urbangriever, commented, “I am so glad I stuck with it because that was a great payoff. This was just delightful.” While others, like jasoncub, couldn’t get over how this happened, writing, “Can anyone explain how something so horrific can develop to become like that?”
