LEAGUE CITY, TX --A former Marine in League City has a hilarious message for people looking to have big, luscious lips: get stung in the mouth by two wasps.
Jose Rivas shared his parody TV pitchman-like video on YouTube and Facebook, and the Facebook post is going viral with nearly 6,000 likes and more than 3,200 shares. Watch the full video in the player above.
Rivas said he filmed the video after he came across a wasp nest while he was searching for his keys outside. He got two stings on the lip and one on his ear.
He told Eyewitness News the worst part was that he was planning on eating sushi/hibachi for dinner, and wasn't able to eat the spicy food.
However, he said the swelling had gone down by the time he went to work the next day.
Rivas describes his occupation on Facebook as a comedian. He says it's a joke, but he notes that he has always been seen as the "class clown" type.
Rivas says his funny ways started when he was deployed. He says the other soldiers always found him funnier than he ever thought he was.
