So I’m watching “My 600 lb. Life” (don’t judge) the other day and this commercial comes on for Biore Blackhead Strips. It’s the grossest thing I’ve ever seen in my life and has no business being in a commercial. I’ve also watched it at least 15 times. Oddly satisfying? Absolutely.
For the love of god why must I watch this over and over? It’s because it’s a human condition known as “benign masochism”, where people actually enjoy their reactions to things like removing impacted ear wax or squeezing oatmeal-like dead skin cells out of a baseball sized cyst. We don’t want to watch, but we can’t not watch. But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself and let me know. I bet you watch it at least 15 times too. If you don't, you're lying.
