This video from Thailand is one of the most ridiculous things we've ever watched.
His striptease, and then the relish with which his 'friend' thrusts the ants nest down his pants is hilarious. But what was the kid thinking?
Fire ants, various species of which are also found in South America, sting their victims rather than just biting them.
And as this video by Aussie comedy duo Hamish and Andy explains, they can induce "the worst pain known to man."
If Hamish needed morphine from having these on his hands, we dread to think what happened to that poor Thai kid's dick...
