Thanks to Dr. Sandra Lee, also known as Pimple Popper, people who fetishized the eruption of pus from a glowing red bump had finally found their long-awaited validation. Videos after videos of people popping their pimples nurturing on different parts of their body had become an Internet staple.
YouTube user Andy Peppers posted a video of a pimple just below his nape on September 13, 2014. It has resurfaced into the minds of people and onto the homepage of YouTube this week.
In the video, Peppers had asked his wife to pop a much overdue pimple, which at first he thought was nothing.
"I had a somewhat large lump on the back of my neck for more than a decade. It wasn't really noticeable and it didn't hurt. That is, until it did start hurting, turning red and angry, and growing multiple whiteheads.
“It started to hurt even to tilt my head back because of all the pressure. The reason this became a story and video instead of a trip to the doctor is that, at the time, my wife and I were working in rural Laos and didn't have ready access to medical care, not least because of the language barrier.
"So, we purchased from a convenience store some gauze, isopropyl alcohol, and a purpose-built zit remover with a lancet on one end and a ring on the other. My wife started "popping" what we were joking must have been the biggest zit in the world.
“Pus started coming out from several pores with each squeeze. But it hurt, so I started to squeeze it myself so I could control the pressure. With my wife's hands free, she decided to film what she was seeing so she could show me what she was incredulously describing as ‘unbelievable.’
"The popping actually took place over several days. Every morning and evening, we would get our first-aid kit and camera and work on the next "installment." This particular video was after the most productive popping episode, during which I felt a significant release of pressure, and then, no more pain!
"Now all that remains of the zit is a small scar on the back of my neck, and of course the video."
There you go, ladies and gentlemen. The video was actually taken in different styles or perspectives. Andy Peppers posted more videos of the same zit, we believe, that you can peruse at your own earliest convenience.
