Nine-Year-Old Boy Eats World's Hottest Pepper And Instantly Regrets It In Hilarious Video

A nine-year-old boy from Scotland has eaten a Carolina Reaper in a hilarious video uploaded to YouTube.

The chillies can reach up to 2,200,000 on the Scoville scale, making it the hottest in the world.

The caption of the video says: "The first few chews were very hot but just about manageable. Then the volcano erupted."

While he's glugging down milk, the boy's grandad can be heard in the background saying: "You're not supposed to swallow it!"

He came back on the video post to give a few words of wisdom for anyone else considering taking on the challenge:
