This year is already proving to be a good one—for fans of pimple popping and cyst extracting videos, at least. The YouTube channel ViralHog just uploaded a video called “30 Year Old Cyst Explosion,” which, well, shows someone popping a massive 30-year-old cyst. Needless to say, this video is not for the faint of heart. But it is perfect for people who can’t take their eyes off those disgustingly mesmerizing pimple popping videos that keep taking the internet by storm.
ViralHog’s cyst popping video is only 36 seconds long, but it feels like it lasts a lifetime. The clip opens on a shirtless person hunched over with a huge cyst on their back. Two rubber glove-covered hands grip the cyst and begin massaging out all the gunk that’s inside it. Everyone around can be heard squealing and screaming, shocked by the “disgusting” act that they’re witnessing. “This is f**king gross,” one person exclaims. “It looks like cheese,” another yells. Before too long, the cyst has been popped, and the rubber glove hands swoop in to clean up the mess they’ve left behind. The whole thing wasn’t pretty, but it was fairly gratifying nonetheless.
Let’s not beat around the bush here: This video is truly gross. But—as with any good pimple popping video—there’s something uniquely satisfying about watching all that gunk squirt out, knowing that the culpable zit or cyst has been deflated. But remember: There is a right way to do a pimple or cyst extraction, and popping is not it. Trying to get rid of blackheads, acne, or cysts without the help of a professional is never advisable, so you should probably hit up your dermatologist if you find yourself with a cyst of this caliber. (Still, there’s no harm in watching—right?)
