In Videos: Elyse Sewell Eating Live Octopus in Seoul

videos-elysesewell-octopi.jpg

Since the title of this video by American fashion model (and hilarious food writer on the side) Elyse Sewell is simple "Seoul Food," I expected to just see clips of various unthreatening food stuffs she came across while modeling in Seoul, South Korea. But half of the video is actually close-ups of the Korean dish, live octopus tentacles, and footage of her unflinchingly slurping down the wriggling tentacles as though it were merely spaghetti. Impressive.

I'd like to believe I'm willing to eat anything once, but I draw the line at food that's still vigorously moving.

Watch the squirming octopus bits, after the jump. (Unless you're squeamish, in which case you may safely watch the first half of the video, and then run.)
