Remember when you were eight, or ten, or maybe 12, and you finally convinced your mom to let you get your ears pierced? It's a precious memory for many women -- the fear, the excitement, then the brief searing pain as the needle gun shot through your young, impressionable lobes. It's a moment many of us may never forget.

And now, joining our ranks is one Aubrey Plaza, who will also likely never forget the piercing of her ears, because she let Kathy Griffin do it on live TV.

Plaza apparently had her ears pierced once before as a child. She tells Kathy that her first experience with lobe-al puncture was at the hands of a Claire's technician.

In the following video, Plaza clutches the hand of Kathy's mother as Kathy hovers next to her with a piercing gun.

Right before Kathy pulls the trigger, Plaza screams, "don't do it don't do it don't do it!!!"
