Man became ‘Hulk’ , but Couldn’t Wash Off Green Paint

This is a bit of old news, but we thought of sharing it to our readers especially for cosplayers or people who plans to paint their body for fun or for a party. So there’s this guy Paulo Henrique dos Santos, who decided to paint himself head-to-toe and join a running event as ‘The Incredible Hulk‘.

But when he went home, he really did became incredibly angry when he found out that the paint wouldn’t come off! He mistakenly bought paint that was used for missiles and submarines because the paint he usually used was unavailable, pretty hardcore paint right?

Even after scrubbing and taking a bath 20 times, the industrial paint still didn’t came off. Fearing from lead poisoning and other effects that the paint would have on him, a team of friends and neighbors scrubbed for 24 hours and it eventually came off. Thankfully he’s okay now, and now we see this as a lesson or as a precaution if you’re planning to paint your body for cosplay or party purposes. So make sure to do some research on body paint and double check the paint you bought to avoid this kind of mishap. Unless you plan on being Hulk forever lol.
