China’s latest buzz: “Bee Bearding” [GALLERY]

A Chinese beekeeper and honey merchant She Ping has covered his semi-naked body in roughly 460,000 bees for a publicity stunt to boost sales.

In what is like the finest display of “bee bearding” the stunt was a display for a group of French photographers, who he believed could bring his business to the global stage.

“To be honest I felt very nervous, but I do it to promote my honey,” She told AFP news.

“I’m used to dealing with bees… and started these activities when I was about 22,” he added.
