These days, it feels like there’s not a lot people won’t do for viral internet fame. Dumping buckets of ice on yourself, eating spoonfuls of cinnamon, donning costumes and dancing, layering your face with 100 coats of lipstick — all of this is par for the viral content course. But one thing we haven’t seen go viral before? A guy shooting himself in the face on camera, simply because he could. Well, today is the day that changes. An Indianapolis-based rapper named Kasper Knight took self-made Internet videos to a hole new level when he got into his car, turned on the camera, and shot a hole through his cheek, all while remaining completely unfazed. Even more baffling are the reasons he did it, which all seem to boil down to “no reason at all.” Check out more of the story below. **WARNING: What you’re about to see and read is very disturbing and graphic.**He’s a rapper, and he wanted to do something…unconventional…for his latest music video.
“I felt like taking a bullet to the face.”
No one would film it for him, so he had to do it himself.
However, he did say that part of the reason he wanted to do this was because the first time he was shot, it didn’t hurt that bad.
Blood begins pouring out of his mouth and down his hand.
This guy looks like he is in quite a bit of pain.
One has to wonder what would honestly compel someone to shoot themselves in the face.
Maybe that’s what Kasper intended all along. “So I did it myself since I felt like taking a bullet to the face,’ he wrote. ‘Anyway, this was really nothing. I’ve been shot a couple times before and this was like a 4 out of 10 on the pain scale after the initial impact.”
Family, friends, and viewers were all horrified, but Knight simply doesn’t care.
“Your care for my life will never supersede my disregard for it,’ he wrote on Facebook. ‘I knew it was possible that the bullet might bounce back and puncture my throat but it didn’t matter.”
His reaction shows a bit of a nihilistic streak — but he survived, and that’s what really matters.
**Kasper also filmed a follow-up video to his stunt, and you can see it below.**
