Man turns into real life Incredible Hulk
Posted on 12:06pm Wednesday 30th May 2012
Brazilian pool attendant, Paulo Henrique dos Santos, from Vila Cruzeiro, painted himself green to look like the Incredible Hulk for a running event, but the colour isn’t washing off. after frantic scrubbing, he realised he’d used a paint reserved for ballistic missiles and nuclear submarines.
In desperation to wash the paint off, he 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. It was only after being scrubbed by a gang of friends and neighbours for 24 hours that Paulo finally removed the stubborn staining.
Funnily enough Paulo says he doesn’t regret the incident.
