In a video that went viral over the weekend, a man asks his friend to punch him in the face because he didn’t want to be awake for a painful tattoo.

The footage, first posted to the KnockoutFootage Facebook page, had been viewed more than 30,000 time since being uploaded to LiveLeak on Sunday.

“Now, why you getting knocked the f*ck out?” a man asks in the video.

“To get a tattoo,” the knockout recipient replies.

The man is advised to close his eyes and not to flinch before a left hook is delivered to his right temple. He quickly falls backward to the floor.

“Now, this being clearly eastern Kentucky, I would think he would just pop himself a couple OxyContin and be on his way,” BroBible’s David Covucci observed. “But that’s just not redneck enough. So instead, he has his buddy punch him out.”

“I can’t imagine this will last the length of the tattoo,” he added. “This isn’t chloroform. This is a concussion.”

Watch the video below.
