Have You Seen This? Christmas boys choir eats ghost chilies

THE NAVE — Nothing says Christmas like super hot chili peppers and boys choirs.

At least, that’s what YouTube user Chili Klaus believes.

Chili Klaus is a Danish “comedian, musician, and chili enthusiast” who spreads his chili cheer one video at a time. In these videos, he basically films people’s reaction as they ingest ghost peppers — which are currently the hottest chili in existence. Because some men just want to watch the world (and your mouth and innards) burn.

His most popular video is from 2014, where through some miracle he convinced each member of the Danish National Orchestra to eat a chili pepper then play one of their practiced pieces. It goes about how you’d expect.

This new video has a similar set-up, but instead of using a group of professional, adult musicians, Klaus asks his former choir — the Herning Boys Choir — to partake of the peppers as they sing the Christmas hymn “O, Come All Ye Faithful.”

The results are equal parts hilarious and painful with a dash of Christmas cheer on top.

Many of these adolescents bravely push through like the champions they are, squirming uncomfortably yet still singing. But there are a few boys the camera picks out of the choir that may never try even a drop of Tabasco after this experience.

There are tears, side-looks of desperation, a little dry heaving, and even one poor fellow who gives up, covers his eyes and waits for the nightmare to be over.

I do not recommend recreating any part of this video at home, but I do recommend watching it and sharing it with all your relations.
