What’s a beekeeper got to do to get some attention around here?
Try wearing a “bee dress” – consisting of around 456,500 of the blighters.
That’s what She Ping did to get his livelihood into the press, and as you can see…it worked very well.
The 34-year-old from China’s Chongqing donned the 45.65kg "living garment" which consisted of the insects from a whopping 28 beehives.
In quotes translated by The Guardian, he told the Chongqing Evening Post: “I first did this at 22, just for fun and out of curiosity. Later on I would put on the bees just for the sake of making people believe I sell actual real honey.
“The last time I did this, I put on a total of 15 beehives on my body, but today I’m breaking my own record [with 28].”
He confessed he found the experience “hot, suffocating and nervous” and had been stung more than 20 times.
