We think he’s gone mental.

We’ve all heard the saying that fame may go to your head, but in the case of Salt Bae, we’re… we’re not quite sure what’s happened.

Granted, the video has accumulated over three million views. So he must be doing something right.

We’re not going to lie though, we think we preferred Salt Bae when he was making our stomachs rumble. Not our dreams scary.
