Pimple popping videos are without a doubt one of the most polarising kinds of videos on the internet. They're gross, yet at the same time oh so captivating. Watching one can inspire a feeling of absolute disgust as well as pure pleasure. And, much like that zit on your face, they aren't going away anytime soon.

The next big thing on the internet

This new genre of fetish for popping all things pimple, blackhead, and cyst have seen a huge increase in views on sites like Youtube - even we can't take our eyes off of them. The reasoning behind it can actually be explained in a psychological way according to one doctor by the name of Dr. Sandra Lee:

I think watching popping is similar to seeing a scary movie or riding a roller coaster for some. You get a rush of euphoria and excitement.

This video is the perfect example of it. This man has a unique technique for getting rid of all the blackheads he's got clogging the pores on his nose. It's definitely a sight to see.
