Jarsquatter, also known as 1 Guy 1 Jar or 1 Man 1 Jar, is a shock video made by Alexey Tatarov. The video was released to eFukt on December 4, 2008.
The full video begins with a naked man with two jars on the ground. He then picks one up and shoves the other one away, before putting the one he chose back on the ground (most versions of the video cut out the beginning portion). The man then proceeds to insert it in his anus by sitting on it and forcing it up. The jar then breaks inside his rectum, after which blood pours from his anus. Without flinching or making a sound, he calmly picks pieces of broken glass from his rectum, while a pool of blood gathers on the floor.
Throughout this, a rather somber piano piece plays. After removing all of the glass pieces, the music falls silent for a while, to which after he stands up, walks away and lets out a scream of pain. A text over the video box says: "If you think you've seen everything...well, just watch this clip.", The reason why he didn't scream when the jar breaks, he was next to his parent's room, after removing out the glass on his anus, he puts a bunch of tissue to his anus to prevent from bleeding.
There is a more widely known version that cuts out the scream at the end (scream which, according to the maker of the video, wasn't from him: it was added by someone else), ending the video abruptly. But the man who made one of his shock videos is Alexey Tatarov.
The day after the video was featured on eFukt, the Golf MKV Forums member danger dan posted a link to the video, describing it as the “most disgusting thing” on the internet. On December 22, a reaction video was uploaded by YouTuber mdrproductionz, which accumulated upwards of 135,000 views and 1,100 comments in the following five years.
On August 20, 2009, a 1Man1Jar site was launched with an autoplaying embed of the original video. On October 8, 2012, Redditor gravity submitted a post to the /r/vertical subreddit, featuring a vertical four-pane comic using screen captures from the show Lost with captions describing the Jarsquatter video in horror, which received over 600 upvotes.
On February 23, 2013, Redditor suthrnpride44 submitted a post to the /r/FiftyFifty subreddit, with its title claiming to be either a screen capture of the Jarsquatter aftermath or a photograph of a duckling. The post, which actually linked to an image of a swimming duck, gained more than 460 upvotes and 10 comments in the next month.
On February 9, 2009, the shock site Ow! My Ass! published an interview with Alex, which revealed that he was Russian, was twice married with two kids and worked as a sales manager.
