At funerals, speakers often urge those in attendance to live their lives as though every second matters. Make sure to savor every minute, they say, because if you don’t, you might one day die like Bob back there, wishing you had done more, said enough, and never wasted a breath. But that road is a very difficult one, and some people just aren’t cut out for it. Their time is too valuable to be spent constructively. Case in point, here is a man putting on pairs of latex gloves until he can no longer play Metallica‘s “Enter Sandman.”

Why, you might ask, does YouTuber JMAP Music want to don pair after pair of latex gloves until he is physically unable to accurately play Metallica’s biggest single? What would be the purpose of such high-octane tomfoolery? But to ask such things would be to ask the rivers why they run or the stars why they twinkle. What’s important is that this dude gets up to 20 pairs of latex gloves on his hands before he finally can’t play the song. That might not sound like that much, but imagine wearing two pairs of latex gloves. Now three. The concept of 20 is a horrible one, a living nightmare, and yet here is sweetest JMAP, knowing what it is to stumble around the song that made Metallica a mainstream phenomenon in enough gloves to kill a small rhinoceros. Those 20 pairs of gloves are JMAP’s cross, and he is carrying them up the hill of the Internet so that he might produce content for our sins.

Watch this guy wear a lot of fucking gloves below:
