Paul Rudd Conjures Naked Man With Brilliant Photography Party Trick
If you've never heard of Hot Ones, the premise of the YouTube show is simple - a big time celeb comes along and sits opposite host Sean Evans and talks about their career, all the while eating increasingly hot chicken wings.
Before checking it out, make sure you have a couple of hours free, as you can very easily find yourself buried down a hot wing-filled rabbit hole. But no matter how far you dig, you'll struggle to come across a gem quite as special as Paul Rudd's photography party trick.
The Ant-Man actor had just polished off a cauliflower substitute - which he said he chose not because he was a vegetarian, but because he was 'trying to become better' - coated in AKA Miso sauce (which has a heat of around 10,000 on the Scoville scale) when he showcased his remarkable party trick.
Borrowing the host's phone, Rudd manipulated his hands in front of the lens before revealing a photograph of Evans in which he appears to have a naked man squatting above his head.
The host was baffled by the handy illusion, but before Evans had chance to properly gather himself, Rudd took another snap in which he added great anatomical detail to the naked man.
He said: "After a while, you can learn new tricks. You're expanding, growing. I found my pinky at the right angle makes a great scrotum."

Dumbfounded by his sorcery, Evans asked Rudd where he learned the skill, to which he replied: "I dunno... but I'm glad I did.
"I have thousands of those photos with people you wouldn't expect to see in those photos."
Just when you thought the guy couldn't be more likeable, eh?
You can watch the full 30-minute long video here. It's definitely worth hanging around towards the end - as it tends to be with every episode in the series - where Rudd takes advantage of the tear-inducing heat of the super hot sauce to improvise a little emotional scene with Evans.
Truth be told though, the 50-year-old (yes, he doesn't look any older than 35, we know) handled the insanely hot sauces very well compared to many celebs who have walked the spicy path before him.
Considering this, it seems rude not to mention that comedy series Living with Yourself - which Rudd appeared on the show to plug - is now available to stream on Netflix.
