Pictures: Man Paints Himself Green To Be 'INCREDIBLE HULK', Discovers Paint Couldn't Remove Again
It's not easy being green - as one Brazilian
man proved when he painted himself to
look like the Incredible Hulk - and found the
colour wouldn't wash off.
Pool attendant Paulo Henrique dos Santos,
from Vila Cruzeiro, dressed up as the comic
book hero for a running event,but got a
nasty shock when the time came to remove
the green paint.
After frantic scrubbing, the hapless chap
realised he'd used a paint reserved for
ballistic missiles and nuclear submarines.
According to Brazilian news site Paulo had
hoped to buy a brand of paint he'd used on
a previous outing as the Hulk, but the shop
he went to didn't have it.
Desperate to undo his inking, the would-be
superhero spent Sunday and Monday
having 'about 20 baths,' and was forced to
sleep in a room lined with plastic bags.
He feared the industrial paint could actually
give him lead poisoning, though he appears
to have had no symptoms.
The 35-year-old, who also works as a DJ in
Rio de Janeiro and is known as MC
Marronzinho, has achieved overnight
celebrity in his local area.
As if being bright green wasn't
embarrassing enough, the local press ran
pictures of his mother trying to remove the
paint - and referred to her as his girlfriend.
