How far would you go to protest the police state? Pyotr Pavlensky, a Russian performance artist,  takes his protest to the ultimate extreme.

In the past, he’s wrapped himself in barbed wire and even sewn up his mouth to protest the imprisonment of Pussy Riot.

But this week, he takes it to a whole new level. He actually nails his scrotum to Red Square in protest of the police state.
