Need a way to thwart the villainous Erik Killmonger from Black Panther? Need a way to knock out the fighter who starred in Creed? How about interviewing him while he tries to choke down some of the hottest chicken wings known to man?

Michael B. Jordan is the latest victim on the First We Feast YouTube channel’s Hot Ones vlog series that takes celebrities, puts them in a room, and makes them answers questions while eating terrifyingly hot wings.

Some celebrities can handle the heat relatively well. Jordan does, too. For a while at least.

With host Sean Evans peppering Jordan with questions about his career, the spiciness got turned up slowly but surely. When the two men reach the Scoville level of 56,000, Jordan really began to feel it. And then it’s just fun to watch his pained reactions, especially when he makes it to the 135,000 Scoville level and beyond.

Jordan seems a little tentative at the beginning of the video because he probably realized the hellscape that awaited his taste buds. At first, he was fine. Then, all of a sudden, Jordan was in trouble (and he knew it). Still, he continued to answer questions and eat hotter and hotter poultry while holding out for as long as possible before guzzling down a glass of milk.

Asked by Evans what he missed most about living the Killmonger character, Jordan said, “He just didn’t give a fuck about nothing.” That’s probably because Killmonger, unlike Jordan, never had to eat chicken drenched in Beyond Insanity hot sauce.
