In a new viral video that's blowing up around the world, a young woman used some inflatable breasts to prank the living sh*t out of a hapless tattoo artist. And as you might imagine, he didn't take it well.

It's not hard to see why this video is so popular. Let's break it down.

1.) She's sexy.
2.) Boobs are involved.
3.) The prank is insane and self-destructive. The guy was in the middle of tattooing her arm! What does that tattoo even look like now? Probably something like this:

Although information on this video is sketchy, most sources agree that this took place at Brite Tattoo Shop in Pattaya, Thailand. And while some reports claimed that these people are strangers, more have stated that the woman in the video is actually the tattoo artist's girlfriend, which would throw the whole "prank" aspect into question.

Apparently, the woman, a 25-year-old named Mint, agreed to take part in the video to raise awareness of the shop as a favor to her boyfriend Feist, who is tattooing her in the video. So either his surprise is totally fake, or he was just legitimately terrified by the sound of a balloon popping that close to his face. Considering that he was sticking a vibrating needle into his girlfriend's arm at the time, that would make sense.

But in the end, does it matter? Viral videos are like jokes—if you deconstruct them too much, you kill the magic. Even if that magic is exploding boobs.
