It's not exactly the "Ice Bucket Challenge." And we sincerely doubt the idea of putting a nest of red ants in your underpants and making a video of the experience is going to catch fire.

However, it did happen at least once -- reportedly in Rayong, Thailand.

After stripping off all his clothing except his underpants, a teenager -- with "help" from his friends -- had a nest of red ants placed in the front of his underwear.

It did not go well. In less than 10 seconds, the young man began screaming in pain.

His friends responded with a hose, attempting to wash off the biting insects.

Watch it all unfold in under one minute.

For the record, these red ants a well-known food source in this part of the world.
