We challenged a Japanese YouTube celebrity to eat a plate full of salamanders.

MEGWIN is an online superstar in Japan. He began uploading comedy videos onto his YouTube channel in the mid-2000s, and since then, he's become a digital sensation. Recently, VICE Japan caught up with MEGWIN and treated him to a plate full of salamanders, fermented herring and a pile of chili peppers from Mexico. We're proud to say he completed his challenge with a face full of snot, sweat and tears.
