Just... People Drinking Their Own Pee for the First Time

It says something about you, me, and the people who produced this video that it exists. But we all know why we're here: to watch people drink their own urine.

Under the guise that some holistic medicine practitioners recommend drinking your own pee, BuzzFeed Blue produced this video where a handful of BuzzFeed staffers drink their own pee. Let's be real; there's no follow up to the piss-sipping escapade, nor is anyone really asking for any. It's not about proving or debunking holistic medicine. It's just about watching people with jars of their own special lemonade sitting on a table, pontificating on whether they'll throw up and if it's going to make them sick. And of course, it's all set to the 1812 Overture. Why not.

Nobody, thankfully, hurls. But they do gag a bit. And as one participant notes, "If you've had sex, and you've ever gone down on a person, you kinda know what their urine tastes like."

OK. That kinda makes sense. But mind you, you're taking the word of a woman who knowingly drank her own pee.
