Enrique dos Santos was trying to look like the Incredible Hulk but managed to use the wrong paint.

MSN said:

A man in Brazil landed himself in deep trouble after the colour he painted his body with failed to come off -- he realised then that the paint was one used for painting ballistic missiles and nuclear submarines.

I wasn't able to read the article, but how does a person get hold of paint that is used on nuclear submarines and ballistic missiles?...

I used to work on ballistic missiles and we had a hard time getting it...

Did he just go to Home Depot and look in the Ballistic Missile aisle?

I'm with Taun on this. How did he get ahold of ballistic paint? And... he's 23. Why is his mother helping to scrub him?

Fun idea, bad planning. How does one get a hold of military grade paint anyway?

If he had attached leaves, vines, twigs and maybe a few flowers, he could of also passed himself off as the "Green Man". Only problem is, giving his bright idea, he might have also used super glue and...well, need I say more?

Ok, I didn't use the same type of paint but I kind of did this to my son...

When he was about 5 we dressed him as Genie from Alladin (his sister was Jasmine).  Well, we bought some blue make-up and black hairspray (both advertised as washable) and proceeded to turn our blond boy into the Genie.

Poor boy had black eyebrows and a nasty blue tinge to his skin for days.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.
