FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- A man who claims to be a Fort Wayne-based rapper apparently shot himself in the face last week for a music video.

In a post to his Facebook page, the man, who performs under the name Kasper Knight, can be seen placing a revolver to his cheek and then pulling the trigger – firing a bullet through his mouth.

He then claims to have swallowed the bullet.

In the post, Knight claims to have been shot "a couple times before" and called it a "4 out of 10 on the pain scale."

Despite its graphic nature, the video has been viewed more than 1 million times.
