But if you clean your ears with cotton swabs or your finger, you could be asking for trouble. Why? Because if you don’t get the whole piece out, you could be pushing it back deeper into your ear canal and compacting it. Over time, this can cause hearing loss and even some pain as the glob of wax grows larger and larger.
One man had done just that. He had never properly dealt with the problem, at least not in years, and was finally fed up with not being able to hear well. The wax was simply blocking the sound vibrations from getting to his ear drum. He could hear, but life as he knew it was muffled in his right ear.
In the video below, he recruits his friend to help free him from the ear wax monster that has called the side of this man’s head home for years. Check out what they pull out in the disgusting clip below!
In the clip below, which was published on Christmas 2014, you’ll watch perhaps the most gross and disgusting at-home treatments of ear wax removal ever caught on camera. More than 14 million people have tuned in to watch this 45-second video clip. And as you’ll soon discover, you’ll immediately know why this thing went viral thousands of times over.
With a pair of tweezers inside the man’s ear, the person performing the procedure gets a grip on the end of the glob of wax. As they pull, you can see it dragging along the side of the man’s ear canal and it probably feels very uncomfortable.
“Oh it’s coming,” the woman filming the clip shouts. “You’re doing so good. You’re doing really good it’s at the very edge.”
AT THE 25-SECOND MARK, SHE GRIPS THE BIG PIECE OF EAR WAX AND STARTS TO PULL. BUT IT JUST KEEPS COMING AND COMING AND COMING. IT’S SO BIG, EVERYONE IN THE ROOM SCREAMS!
Hundreds of people have left their comments and reactions. Here are some of the most popular responses:
“this video should be named ‘Man hears for first time’”
“At first was disappointed with her destroying the catch a little bit at a time, but glad the outcome was a real trophy keeper.”
“Does anybody else think that pulling out earwax is satisfying”
“I went to the doctor today and I had quite a bit removed. it felt great. made me spread my damn toes. oddly satisfying. felt accomplished.”
