It's a proven fact that weed and food go together wonderfully. Usually, when those munchies hit late at night, it’s a match made in heaven. But when you start packing your bowl full of Carolina Reaper—the world’s hottest chili pepper, clocking in at 2.2 million units on the Scoville scale—you’ve officially crossed over into the realm of insanity and derangement.
Earlier this year, a maniac named Russell Hawkins filmed himself vaping—and then snorting—bags of Smokin' Ed Currie’s fiery, Frankenstein creation, convulsing in a state of catalytic shock. Now, inspired by Hawkins stunt, a dude named Ted Barrus can been seen taking massive bong rips of crushed up Carolina Reapers, and, unsurprisingly, proceeds to lose his damn mind.
“I’ve done a lot of stupid things on the Internet, and this is probably the dumbest thing I have ever done,” he admits. “Woo! Adrenalin is pumpin’, man. I’m nervous about this.”
Luckily, the video’s title warns us that there’s puking a head, but from the very beginning Barrus starts coughing wildly, dry heaving, and shouting about how he can't see. Unfortunately, you can't pour milk directly into your lungs, Ted.
For those of you watching, please don't try this at home. For the love of everything that is good and holy, please just use your bong for getting baked, not incinerating your insides.
