  • In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper pops a steatocystoma that overflows with oily, buttery contents.

  • Dr. Lee compares the cyst's contents to "movie theater butter," with many fans agreeing that the gunk looks like questionable popcorn topping.

  • Steatocystomas are small, benign lumps that are filled with sebum, a yellowish, oily substance that helps lubricate the hair, skin, and nails.

Get ready to squirt on all that extra butter, pop(corn) lovers. In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—pops a cyst that overflows with oily, buttery contents. Your movie-time snack will never look the same again.

In the quick clip, Dr. Lee punctures the buried cyst with a surgical blade, then squeezes the growth with a firm hand. With little struggle or trouble, a river of oily, buttery yellow contents comes flowing out of the mass.

“Like the movie theater butter,” Dr. Lee captioned the video. And it truly looks like the oil-based fake butter you’d get from a cinema.

“The fact that it actually looks like butter is frighteningly awesome,” a fan commented on the video, further proving the disturbing resemblance. Another added, "No! Don't ruin popcorn for me." Sorry. It happened.

This particular type of cyst is called a steatocystoma. Steatocystomas are small, benign lumps that are filled with sebum, a yellowish, oily substance that helps lubricate the hair, skin, and nails, according to the National Institute of Health.
