First off a warning. The linked video (below) may contain images that are unsettling. I say “may” because that is the source of the controversy. It is not overly graphic…just…gross (maybe).
I’ll put a description here for those who would rather read about it before deciding to view the video.
The video is of what appears to be a high school orchestra performing. One youth, playing the timpani (I think) is banging away and then appears to have one of the following two things happen:
The drum stick breaks and flies back and sticks in to his cheek
His eye pops out
Yeah…strange I know and one would think the decision between those two would be obvious but it isn’t. On another message board we have been going round and round about it.
While either choice is not a pleasant thought the video is not overtly grpahic. Indeed on the first viewing I totally missed what had happened at all. Still, there is an ick factor here.
The video quality is poor which does not help.
That said here is the link: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Iwp9rzbmwfE
