People have gone wild for this terrifying video...

We're all basically addicted to TikTok, right?


And with this type of variety on the app, it's not hard to see why...

You may be forgiven for thinking TikTok is just for inane videos.

And, to be fair, there are plenty of them.

And, of course ...


There's plenty of dancing.

But outside of these videos ...


Some truly bizarre videos exist, too.

And there's one new TikTok that's taking the internet by storm.


It's blowing everybody's minds.

In it, a TikTok user spies a slimy creature on the beach, and instead of running a mile, decides to get a little closer...


"Yes, it's a jellyfish, look how big it is. And it's still moving, oh my god, I'm going to lick it."

Here's the video that got everyone talking ...

"That is not a jellyfish, it's a Portuguese Man O' War, also known as the bluebottle, also known as the floating terror."

"This is why women live longer than men, s*** like this."

"It's a species of siphonophore armed with millions of explosive stinging cells powerful enough to make Nemo an orphan and occasionally turn a person into past tense."

"This Man O' War is responsible for up to 10,000 stings a year in Australia alone and the venom can cause excruciating pain for up to three days, leaving a nasty, whip-like welt as a souvenir."


"But honestly, you're lucky if that's all you get because the venom can trigger an allergic-like reaction that results in throat-swelling, heart issues and difficulty breathing, as you suffocate, possibly to death."
