VIDEO: Man Eats The World's Hottest Chilli


Published at 12:18pm 27th July 2016.

Tesco has introduced the world’s hottest chilli pepper into its stores.

The ‘Naga Jolokia’ chilli is measured at just over one million scoville heat unit.

In comparison, Tobasco sauce only reaches between 1,500 to 2,500.

Stating on its website, the supermarket warns that the pepper should be used “sparingly and with care.”

A YouTube joker however decided to ignore these guidelines and popped the whole pepper into his mouth, while filming the process.

James Warne introduced the video with a description of the chilli. Holding it in the air with the use of a rubber glove, he explains that without it his skin would be in danger.

James also says that the chilli has made it into the Guinness World Records.

After a few chews of the fiery food, James says: “I feel sick already and I haven’t even swallowed it.”

His face soon turns a flush of red, his eyes begin to water and he starts to hiccup.

“I think I could throw up my lungs right now.”

The tears began to stream.

“I didn’t think I could cry so much.”

Then it hit his stomach...

“Feels like someone is inside me with a blow torch and crème ‘bruleeing’ my stomach.”

James reaches for some yoghurt and spoons it into his mouth in a bid to soothe the pain.

“I think I’m just about over the peak pain but my tongue still feels like its walked on hot coals.

“It’s going to be a whole day of suffering and the worst thing - I’ve only got myself to blame.”
