A sick vlogger goaded a homeless man into drinking three bottles of vodka in three minutes by paying him the equivalent of just a few pounds.
The potentially fatal drinking stunt was just one of several set up by the callous vlogger who calls himself ‘First Step To YouTube’.
Other videos show desperate homeless men being paid a small amount of money to down hot sauce or cooking oil for the amusement of the vlogger and his audience.
The homeless men featured are reportedly from the city of Smolensk in western Russia's Smolensk Oblast region, so the vlogger is assumed to live in that area.
One video shows a man in a blue coat being given three bottles of vodka and promised cash if he can drink them all in three minutes.
They look like half-litre bottles, which means the man is being asked to drink a litre and a half of vodka, or 33 shots, a dose that would kill some people.
The man in the clip, named as military veteran Aleksandr, manages the feat, despite some obvious discomfort. The aftermath is not shown, however.
Aleksandr’s exact payment was not reported but an earlier video showed a homeless man drinking one bottle of vodka in five minutes in return for 500 RUB (7 GBP).
There are also clips of Aleksandr and another homeless man drinking hot sauce and cooking oil, leaving the other man vomiting copiously.
Despite the obvious cruelty of his actions, the blogger claims his method help the homeless men to start getting back into society.
But his claims have not impressed netizens.
‘Pavel Vasiliev’ said: "The author of this video is at the rock bottom. Why would you do this to people who are living in hell?! You should have thought if these people actually had food today!"
And ‘Edren Baton’ added: "You are shaming your entire family. You are a beast to stage such experiments on real people."
The amount of vodka required to kill a person varies between individuals but in 2008 student Jason Venezia died aged 19 after drinking 15 shots in 20 minutes in an effort to win a bet.
