A wannabe rapper of Indianapolis, Indiana, posted a video to Facebook, showing how he shoots himself in the face in hopes that the clip would go viral.

He than posted another video, showing off the injuries.

Kasper Knight shot himself in the face in an alleged attempt to launch his musical career.

In the video, Knight was seen pressing a gun against his cheek and pulled the trigger without hesitation, blowing a hole in the side of the face.

Knight then placed his hand on his cheek as blood poured from his mouth.

Knight wrote on Facebook that he wanted to shoot himself in the face during a music video, but he was unable to find a cameraman willing to record it.

“I actually wanted to put this in a music video, but no cameraman wanted to record it. So I did it myself since I felt like taking a bullet to the face,” he wrote on Facebook.

“This was really nothing. I've been shot a couple times before and this was like a 4 out of 10 on the pain scale after the initial impact.

“I look slightly disorientated after the blast. That's because my ears were ringing in pain. It was hard to focus on sound and although I assumed that I swallowed the bullet, I wasn't quite sure.

“The last time that a bullet ricocheted through me, it destroyed an organ and part of another,” he wrote.
