Career not working out the way you planned? Why don’t you try permanently scarring yourself on the internet to help kick it off? Yep, in today’s news from “the world of idiotic things people do to get famous”, Kasper Knight from Indiana shot himself in the face.
The aspiring rapper posted a video of himself shooting a hole in his cheek on Facebook, and after pulling the trigger continues to talk normally for the rest of the video.
Read his full post here.
So far the unusual marketing scheme has received over half a million views, and the video’s description definitely suggests it was a publicity stunt. He wrote, “I’m answering all questions concerning my books, art gallery, and mediocre rap/rock videos.”
“I actually wanted to put this in a music video/ but no cameraman wanted to film it. So I did it myself since I felt like taking a bullet to the face.
“Anyway, this was really nothing. I’ve been shot a couple times before and this was like a 4 out of 10 on the pain scale after the initial impact.”
Viewers of the video suspect that Knight used a starter pistol and blanks rather than a real pistol as the bullet doesn’t come out through his other cheek, while other theorists wonder why he shot it in vertically and through an iPhone if the clip was for a music video as he says in below description.
He then went on a rant soon after the video’s release, responding to people’s comments.
“You guys are a mess. We got black people blaming my facial mutilation on whites, whites blaming it on blacks, conservatives blaming it on liberals, liberals blaming the gun, random f*cks blaming it on Mexicans, and conspiracy theorists asking for proof even though we have a full blown unedited video on deck.
“We have people asking why when they already know the answer, average joes pretending to be ballistic experts, and civilians attempting to quote law. We also have people throwing out terms like attention whore, while simultaneously giving this video attention.
“We got people making bold assumptions, prior service and current military talking sh*t while expecting me to respect their alleged PTSD (I am also prior service military) and people with no actual jobs in the field of mental health attempting to diagnose or recommend a diagnosis.
“Congratulations Facebook World. You just played yourself.
Time to maybe try a new career, Kasper?
