This thrilling little video was uploaded to YouTube last summer, but with the city's (and the world's!) bedbug armies still on the march, it's well worth watching as a cautionary tale. Finish what you're eating and behold in horror as the videographer gets up-close and personal with a spectacularly infested apartment, scored to a jaunty cover of The Band's "The Shape I'm In."

The whole thing kind of fizzles out at the end, but maybe that's just because we were expecting the scene to climax with the camera operator falling to his knees as a bloodthirsty swarm of bed bugs feast on his thighs. [Bedbugger via Village Voice]
