No sudden movements: Man wears 100 pounds of bees

Beekeeper She Ping of Chongqing, China is making headlines for a risky marketing initiative.
On Thursday, the 34 year-old stood perfectly still while 460,000 bees -- weighing about 100 pounds total -- landed on his body.
Assistants were able to lure the swarm to She with the help of several queens.
A huge crowd turned out to witness the stunt, including several members of the press.
The event took about 40 minutes from start to finish.
"To be honest I felt very nervous, but I do it to promote my honey," She told AFP, adding that he's been dealing with bees for the past 12 years.
She said that he was stung about 20 times during the event.
