Man eats two razor-sharp CACTUSES because ‘you only live once’
This is the bizarre moment a man decided to eat TWO spikey cactuses after seeing youngsters trying it online. And the daredevil managed to keep munching despite the needles piercing his cheeks, lips and hands.
The video shows competitive eater LA Beast, who rose to fame after eating 150 McDonald’s chicken nuggets, begin by warning viewers not to try it at home – a great start. His shouts of pain throughout are enough to make you wince, but he keeps going and completes the challenge in less than six minutes. With one liners like "I have spikes in my lips" and regular grimaces, it looks extremely painful. But the video has garnered over half a million hits, so the brave man has done it, he is a viral hit yet again.
