There’s a toy coming out that simulates pimple popping and it’s super gross …yet addicting at the same time and I’m not quite sure why. I’ve never been one to take part in any form of pimple-popping game or watching videos about it, because it takes me back to the terrors of pubescence, and because it’s just yucky to me. However, there are some people out there that find the act of watching professional pimple-poppers pop pimples on videos (yes, those sort of things exist and can be found on Youtube) both soothing and fascinating …why that is is beyond my comprehension. Popping pimple videos is so popular that someone actually decided to create a novelty toy for all of the pimple-popping loving fans and without further ado, I bring to you the Dr. Pimple Popper Game.
What is the Dr. Pimple Popper Game?
The Dr. Pimple Popper Game is basically a piece of fake skin that you can fill up with yellow pus and pop it whenever you like. Pretty cool, right? Yeah, I’m not so sure about that. Oh and, as an added bonus, the slab of skin is available in brow or beige.
Who Came Up with this Idea?
Yes …this is the question I asked myself and I just had to look into it to find out what “masterminds” decided to put this out on the market. This toy was created by a husband and wife – Billy and Summer Pierce. According to Dr. Pimple Popper’s website, these two are addicted to pimple-popping videos.
Why is Pimple Popping Satisfying?
If you are grossed out by popping pimples, it’s probably hard to understand exactly why it is so satisfying for some. According to professionals, when you watch those videos, the brain is forced to release dopamine, which as many of you already know is a “feel-good” chemical. Another reason so many enjoy popping pimples is, of course, because it eliminates those annoying blemishes, leaving them with a good sense of relief. A pus-filled pimple is not only unsightly, it is also painful, and popping them relieves the individual.
As you know, popping pimples on your body isn’t a good idea, because it can leave you with scars, and it can cause some nasty infections, which is why it is better to watch people get treated by a “professional” on a video. Or, if you really can’t help yourself, go ahead and get yourself the Dr. Pimple Popper toy so that you won’t mess up your own skin – this toy will give you a hands-on approach to popping all the pimples you could possibly pop and squeezing the pus out is just …mesmerizing …to some.
