Man accidentally discovers apple sticker in ear that had been there for years
| Last updated
A man has revealed how he accidentally stumbled across an old sticker in his ear - and we have so many questions.
But we're betting he didn't expect to find an old sticker in there.
Get you sick bag at the ready and take a look below:
He says in the video: "I bought this a while back [...] it's like one of those scoopy-out things for your ears to get the wax out and it's also got a camera in there with a light.
"So I've been going at it just to see what's inside my ears and what I can get out, you see the usual wax, hairs and stuff like that. But I found something which I don't think you should find in your ear."
Ellis then cut to a clip of the camera inside his ear - but there's something standing out among the wax and hairs.
"That white thing, that white thing there," he says.
"I'm there trying to pick at it, see if I can scoop it out but it's just not budging."
Turns out, the unidentified object was actually the sticker from a Royal Gala apple, which Ellis says he hasn't had 'in years'.
"So this has been stuck in my ear for years," he concluded.
And if you're wondering how it got there - or how Ellis didn't ever feel the sticky paper lodged in his ear - well you wouldn't be alone in wondering, with followers taking to the comments section pretty confused.
One person wrote: "I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WAS EXPECTING. BUT IT DEFFO WASN'T THAT."
Another said: "How did it stay in for so long?"
A third added: "WE NEED TO KNOW… Has your hearing improved??!?!?"
Others explained that when they first saw the video, they thought he had 'pulled out his ear drum'.
"I genuinely thought you just scooped out your ear drum, that was a roller coaster of emotions," one wrote.
While another said: "I legit thought it was your eardrum and you were gonna be in all kinds of pain."
Others shared their own similar experiences, with one woman explaining she had discovered three earring backs inside her ear.
"I do this at work - once removed a Monopoly piece from someone’s ear. She hadn’t played Monopoly in 10 years," wrote another.
