Paul McCartney Continues Playing While SWARMED By Grasshoppers!

| Filed under: Music MinutePaul McCartneyInsectsFunnyBugs

Paul McCartney certainly is a veteran performer.

It'd take more than a few bugs to get him to mess up a live show.

Actually, we feel like it'd take nothing short of a plague of locusts to throw him off his game.

That's kinda what happened to him at a show in Brazil.

While up on stage, for almost three hours, he was surrounded by grasshoppers, several of which landed on him while he was performing.

One in particular sat on his shoulder while he played.

Paul ended up naming the little guy Harold. Ha!

What a professional, to be able to keep playing and even make light of the situation.

Check out the video (above) to hear Paul talk about his locust buddies then still continue the show!

But in old buildings, too!

Here's what a scientist said:

Dragonflies are one of the prettiest insects that we've seen on this earth!

But like Milla Jovovich in The Fifth Element - the beautiful ones are always the most dangerous! LOLz!

Apparently dragonflies are one of nature's most deadliest predators. And not only that, they're pretty darn efficient, too!

Viggo Mortensen

Viggo Mortensen is so handsome and talented and handsome!

We could listen to him talk all day about anything.

But when he talks about animals in any way, even insects, we extra listen!

He's starring in a new movie called Everybody Has a Plan where, aside from speaking Spanish the entire time, he murders his identical twin and assumes his identity.

He gave an interview about the movie, and was asked about one of his characters, who was a beekeeper. He was asked:

"One of your characters in the film is a beekeeper. Did you learn to do your own beekeeping for the film?"

…and responded:
