    I know, right?

    Basically, there's this Danish comedian, Claus Pilgaard, who calls himself Chili Klaus. Because he is a chili pepper enthusiast.

    He gets Danish celebrities, or large crowds of people, to eat the world's hottest chili peppers, and then films them doing activities or simply losing their minds. His YouTube channel is mesmerising.

    For this experiment, he conducts the Danish National Chamber Orchestra playing the "Tango Jalousie".

    Here they are all popping the peppers.

    At first, things seem ok.

    Oh dear.

    As soon as they finish, it's a bit of a horror show.

    Before the experiment, this violinist told Chili Klaus, "I think chili is a good ingredient to have in many parts of your life, and also in music."
