Dr. Pimple Popper is making a board game that’s absolutely disgusting, and we are thrilled.
For those of you who haven’t been to dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee’s YouTube page, be cautious. It’s gross. Super gross. Like, unimaginably yucky. But quite frankly, we completely understand why she’s so incredibly popular.
Perhaps it’s the dichotomy of a very pretty doctor making very ugly problems disappear. And without a doubt, she’s excellent at her job. She’s cured all kinds of skin ailments from blackheads covering an entire person's face to removing a cyst from the back of a man’s head that was the size of… well, his head. She removed the gross, disgusting lump that was coming out of his neck in two shakes of a lamb's tail, for an incredibly intrigued audience.
For her excellent work removing people’s various skin-based gross things, she earned the online moniker "Dr. Pimple Popper". She then proceeded to acquire 3.9 million subscribers. That’s 3.9 million people that actually like watching puss ooze out of a person’s face.
Her popularity has grown so much that she even landed a 6 episode miniseries on TLC. It debuted July 11th and will presumably follow some of her worst cases.
And now she’s come popular enough to warrant a board game.
In conjunction with international toy conglomerate Spin Master (and as reported by Refinery29), Dr. Sandra Lee is bringing a board game to market that’s all about popping people’s pimples. It’s called "Pimple Pete," and it plays out a lot like the classic game of Operation, only much grosser.
Here’s how it works: you play as an aspiring dermatologist tasked with taking all of Pete’s pimples off his pizza-face. The pimples are appropriately gross-colored jelly things, but that’s a cakewalk compared to the rest of the gameplay. The worst part is that Pete’s face is on an axle--apply too much pressure one way or the other and he’ll tilt and trip a sensor. When that happens, the big red “mega-zit” on his nose sprays water everywhere.
That’s right: screw up and you’ll get “puss” all over your clothes.
Luckily, we have some time before we went this latest tunnel in the darkest timeline. Pimple Pete hits stores sometime this fall.
