A man has been possessed by demons after video emerged of him fainting while having an ear piercing, viewers have sensationally claimed.
Tomas, from Argentina, was getting his left ear pierced at a local shop but as the piercer tried to place a mark on his ear, something sinister seemed to happen.
Video showed Tomas’ eyes going white before he loses consciousness and falls to his right.
The man next to him wearing white gloves is then forced to try and keep him in his place and to stop him collapsing to the floor.
Tomas wrote afterwards: “In just a second I was in Narnia.”
He was referring to the fantasy world created by CS Lewis in The Chronicles of Narnia in which the characters that visited it often confused it with being in a dream world.
But viewers who have seen the viral video, which was seen more than 1.5million times on Twitter in under 48 hours, believed Tomas was possessed by the devil and that Satan was at work.
In popular myth, demons who have possessed human victims can be driven out by the use of pain as they are cowards and cannot bear their own suffering.
One commented: “This is Satan telling you not to do the piercing.”
And another said: “The eyes, this is not fainting, the Satan itself went into him.”
Others were less convinced about the possession angle, like a third who said: “It happened the same to me, but I think it was worse when I had blood taken, you must be scared of needles.”
And a fourth added: “Man, I had five earrings in the ear with a needle, do not be an idiot.”
