There was a lot of screaming and squirming involved and she finally managed to pull the octopus from her face. Her face was nearly distorted. Once she got it off, she held it in her hands and said, "I'll eat you next time."
Seaside Girl Little Seven is a live streaming host that regularly posts pictures of her enjoying seafood. As a blogger, she wants visibility and to gain visibility, she needs to keep trying new ideas to increase her popularity. One such idea of hers backfired a bit. I'm pretty sure this is not what she meant by gaining popularity. According to Daily Mail, she shared a 50-second-long video on the popular short-video platform Kuaishou, which quickly went viral. Basically, she was trying to eat an octopus alive, as a bid to increase her followers, but little did she know that she'd be sucked into it.
The video starts off with the chatty host telling her audience that the tiny creature has latched itself on her face quite strongly, as the octopus was already stuck to her face. She did not seem afraid of it and even told her fans "look how hard it's sucking" as she tried to remove a tentacle from her upper lip. Soon enough, she realized that the octopus just wasn't ready to let go, and so she started crying; she was freaking out!
She screamed in front of the camera saying it's "painful" and "I can't remove it" while she was struggling to use all her strength to just get the octopus off her left cheek. The octopus latched itself on her face like vacuum clips on a glass surface. There was a lot of screaming and squirming involved and she finally managed to pull the octopus from her face. Her face was nearly distorted. Once she got it off, she held it in her hands and said, "I'll eat you next time."
Immediately, she noticed that the octopus had left a bloody cut on her face when she pulled it off because it latched itself that hard on her face. She cried, "My face is disfigured." An octopus generally uses its tentacles to protect itself from a potential attacker. They use their arms and wraps them around the attacker and then attaches itself on them by using their vacuum-like suckers.
Stats show that a mature giant Pacific octopus has some 280 suckers on each arm, and each sucker contains thousands of chemical receptors. Also, using all 8 arms, an octopus can move more than 700 pounds. That's how strong those tentacles are. When threatened, giant Pacific octopuses shoot out an inky substance that creates an instant “smokescreen,” allowing it to escape from predators. They're quite scary, aren't they? But it's been said that octopuses are rather timid creatures and they RARELY display aggressive behavior towards humans. This probably was an exception from regular octopus behavior!
Several people chose to comment on their thoughts on this video. Most of them just said this is karma. She tried to eat the octopus alive, and the octopus tried the same thing, too. Scott Tice commented: Eating a living creature while it's still alive is just cruel and unnecessary!!!! Julie Watkiss added: Don't understand why she is getting upset. It's only doing what she was doing! Maria Salkina said: She tried to eat it alive? There is something very wrong with her.
Mwape Chalabesa found the entire thing to be quite funny: Hahaha. It's just a small bite, an octopus was just giving her a warning that it also needed to live, and that next time, she'll be eaten instead. The way she cried though lol. Chris Crossley seemed to have a different point of view: It’s literally the most natural way to eat something although you may get bitten. Naturally! Amanda Nam added: If an octopus could make a noise it would be crying and screaming in fear more than her! Why eat something that is alive? Poor creature.
