She Ping, Chinese beekeeper, wears 460,000 bees

"A Chinese beekeeper has broken the world record for the greatest weight of bees worn on the body," the International Business Times reports.

She Ping, a local beekeeper from the Chinese city of Chongqing, participated in a big publicity stunt on April 9th in an attempt to sell more of his honey, according to The Huffington Post. Ping reportedly covered himself with 100 pounds of bees utilizing a technique called "bee bearding."

Over 460,000 bees were attracted to Ping's body with the help of "natural odours," explains the Shanghaiist. Check out the photos above for the incredible scene.

This guy is either incredibly stupid or incredibly brave. Either way,after all that,I hope he sells a lot of honey.

Bees don't sting unless threatened .That's why bee keepers can collect their honey combs without fear of being stung .Had a cousin who had hundreds of beehives for years and had never been stunk .He processed the honey and it never goes bad in time .

Honey is a preservative. It doesn't go bad.

I wonder why he wasn't poisoned by the bees . you can see they bit him all over! Why would this stunt cause anyone to want to buy his honey unless they felt sorry for him.
