When you wake up in the morning and search your favorite news app for the latest information of the day you expect to see the latest political developments, probably some activism, and a bit of sport. You’ll surely get excited when you see the news that telling a woman tried to eat a live octopus, which attacked back.
A girl who has been ‘lovingly’ named ‘seaside girl Little Seven’, a video blogger from China decided that her life amongst the shadows was over and she had to aim for the spotlight. There have been challenges like Tide pod-gobbling, KiKi-dancing, and condom-snorting before, which have often resulted in viral celebs getting a worse fate than hospitals. So, this is not much surprising. ‘Eat-A-Live-Octopus Challenge’ this is something new introduced by this girl.
She is trying to prove her mettle by eating an octopus in this 50-second video from the Jiangsu city of Lianyugang. She attaches herself with the octopus, and it is like a good, healthy relationship between the human and the marine world. Then the octopus starts attaching its tentacles all over her face and it turns into a horror sequence. One of the tentacles gets hooked to her eyelid, and the other to her upper lip. The girl’s shrieks calling it all very ‘painful’ as they keep pulling.
At last, she is freeing herself from a trap of death. There’s blood dripping from that wound when she releases it. Any human being would cross out eating an octopus from their bucket list forever after seeing this. But, she promises her viewers to eat one the next time. She is also happy as this video would reach far and wide, and catapult her into stardom.
According to Daily Mail this girl is supposedly a major sea-food lover.
But she was criticized by social media. According to Business Insider, a user claimed that the girl finally learned not to mess with an octopus. According to a user on the Chinese Twitter-like platform, the octopus tried eating the girl instead of the girl eating it.
Giant Pacific octopuses have almost 280 suckers, on each one of its eight tentacles. They use it to wrap around their predators to defend them. You can see the power of these suckers from the video.
This is a good example for people not to mess with nature. If they won’t learn, we will come across with another strange and stupid act which gets viral.
