It’s never a good idea to pour fire ants on your genitals, no matter how big a YouTube sensation you want to become. This warning is sadly too late for a man in Thailand who did just that and recorded his painful experience, complete with intense screaming, on video.

As you’ll see in the clip below, fire ants aren’t really happy being disturbed, and they apparently can bite pretty hard. Entomologist Justin Schmidt explained in a post on iO9 how it feels being bitten by a fire ant. The pain is “sharp, sudden, mildly alarming. Like walking across a shag carpet and reaching for the light switch.”

This pain is likely more intense when it happens in a particularly sensitive area… like this wannabe stuntman’s penis when it gets furiously bitten by multiple scared ants looking to escape.

Just see it for yourself below – and never, ever, put fire ants on your genitals.
