I hope I’m wrong. As far as I can tell, it’s not even slightly erotic but I can’t shake the feeling that there’s a few people touching themselves to the video of a young woman getting an octopus stuck on her face.
The woman, known as ‘seaside girl Little Seven’, shared a video of herself the the Chinese video-sharing site Kuaishou where, apparently, she endeavoured to eat a live octopus to get more followers.
However, quite funnily (if that’s true (which it sounds like it is)), the octopus attacked back, clinging to her face with immense grip, leaving her shrieking in pain as she tried to rip it off.
At first, she’s quite calm, saying things like “look how hard it’s sucking” and “I can’t remove it,” but she soon starts to panic as prying the mollusc away appears to be more of a herculean task than she anticipated.
Have a watch…
Assessing the tiny cut on her left cheek, she hilariously declares “my face is disfigured.” She then, less funnily, says that she’s going to eat the octopus in her next video. Poor guy.
Why can’t she just do normal vlogger things? Play a video game or something? Make out with her sister… that’s what normal YouTubers do, right?
Kuaishou is a website largely criticised by the public as, seemingly, it encourages people living in poor, rural parts of China to perform ridiculous and dangerous acts in the name of internet popularity and rewards.
*This video is not for the faint-hearted*
The video platform features many posts with people eating live animals (amongst other things like light bulbs) for approval, and one vlogger even died during a live stream whilst trying to jump into a river.
It doesn’t seem like a great place to build online stardom at all…
