Here’s a Half-Naked Man Wearing 100 Pounds of Bees Like a Coat

That's more than 460,000 bees

The Internet is buzzing about a Chinese beekeeper named She Ping, who decided to see what it would be like to wear a coat of more than 460,000 bees, weighing nearly 100-pounds, during a 40-minute stunt in Chongqing, southwest China. Incense and cigarettes appear to have been used to keep the bees away from his face. He felt “hot, suffocating and nervous”, he told the Chongqing Evening Post, according to The Guardian.
