Can this madman finish a gallon of Tabasco sauce in 10 minutes?

He's gonna have an even worse time tomorrow.

Last month, a professional madman named the LA Beast sat down at a black table and drank one gallon of Tabasco hot sauce, an alarming amount of hot sauce for any human with a working nervous system to take down. 

The Beast, who lives in Santa Monica and runs a wild and crazy YouTube channel called skippy62able, where he’s been known to eat obnoxious amounts of Burger King, rip telephone books apart, and tack a lot of clothespins onto his face.

The Gallon of Tabasco challenge has proved to be his most famous, by about 300 views, likely because it’s fundamentally insane. 

Still, the LA Beast takes it, going in on a gallon over the course of ten minutes. 

It’s awfully painful to watch. The Beast looks like he’s headed out to play football in his upkeep, but instead he pulls out this jug of food magma, takes a few breaths, and starts chugging away at it. 

It’s only takes three ounces before he starts explaining that his lips are on fire. He’s grabbing his stomach after a quarter gallon. After a half gallon, he’s literally talking to himself about himself. “Almost just threw up right there,” he says. 

Hey LA Beast, so did we. 

Does he finish it? You’ll have to watch. Just maybe not while you’re eating any food.
