Above is video of what happened when an Indian man went to a doctor complaining of an ear ache.

The doctor told the man, believed to be from Southern India, that he had a two-inch cricket lodged in his ear canal, which was then removed with tweezers as shown.

An expert told the Daily Star that the insect is likely a house cricket.

“These critters are known to be an invasive species, appearing all over the globe,” Michael Sweet, lecturer at the University of Derby and invertebrate biology expert, told the paper.

“It is likely this cricket crawled into the man’s ear while he was sleeping and was just hiding there until night came around.”

It is not believed the pest caused the man any harm.
