- Commenters are freaking out about it.
A new pore-squeezing video is making the rounds on Reddit and horrifying plenty of viewers on its way.
Redditor AznMonkel posted a video on the /r/WTF subreddit yesterday showing a man using nothing but his bare fingers to press an astounding amount of gunk from the pores on his nose. It’s racked up more than 780,000 views.
You can watch it for yourself right here:
Because of the video’s poor resolution and lighting, it’s hard to tell whether the man is actually popping pimples or just extracting harmless, natural sebaceous filaments (which dermatologists say you shouldn’t squeeze).
Either way, it’s captivating (and a touch horrifying) to watch him somehow squeeze out all of the gunk hiding in his pores in one go.
People on Reddit had lots to say about the video. “Like a time lapse Chia-pet,” one said. Someone else dubbed the stuff inside the man’s pores “nose hummus.” Others just expressed general slack-jawed horror.
“I hate that I like s— like this,” wrote another commenter, which is probably how a lot of us feel when we can’t tear our eyes away after the umpteenth loop of this video.
