Blood and Guts

I had an endoscopy in Hong Kong. This procedures involved putting a camera down my throat and using a small arm to gather tissue samples. After it was all over, they gave me a DVD of the video. This move is made from the video I ripped off the DVD. It takes you on a journey down my throat, into by esophagus (where you can see nasty ulcers), down to my stomach, and then into my small intestine (for just a moment), before coming all the way back out. In the latter half, you can see tissue sample collection. This involves a small amount of blood.

Thanks to Rich M and Friend Side Monkey for the soundtrack. I did not really ask if I could use it, but the name is so perfect I do not see how they could say no.

Note - If you are easily grossed out by blood or the digestive tract, you should skip this video.

As usual, the files are in MP4 format. If you can not view them, please download VLC Player.

I'm very "surprised" by your reaction to that video, Nuno.

It's not gross.
It's nature.

i am honored to provide a soundtrack to such a heartwarming tale of endoscopy, uclers and digestion. the lead ulcer was especially convincing, as a down-on-his-luck abrasion trying to escape his past and redeem himself.

unfortunately, the ending relied on a slew of special effects and explosions, culiminating in the predictable 'small intestine' finale.
