In the now-infamous clip, the blackhead is carefully removed with a pair of pointed tip tweezers in almost nine minutes.
The hook that grabs the viewer is that each time it appears, the blackhead appears completely removed — but there is still more to be extracted.
In the end, the patient’s ear is eventually cleared of blackheads, with the procedure leaving large, bleeding holes.
The original YouTube upload has reached over 11 million views. Based on the comments, the video has successfully pleased its audience by providing a very disgusting entertainment.
“Words cannot describe the satisfaction I get when I see the big gaping empty hole. Although I did nothing but watch, I somehow feel heavily involved…” the top commenter on YouTube wrote.
“Anyone else found themselves salivating towards the end? Anyone?… no? Just me?” another one chimed in.
