Meet Rick Genest, The Most Tattooed Man On Earth...

 
Even though this is an ad campaign for make-up, I thought my fellow nerds would enjoy it immensely. I recently caught the Keanu Reeves flick '47 Ronin' and was pleasantly surprised by the mystical kung-fu flick and what it had to offer. It was high action, a great story, and had some interesting characters... none more interesting that Rick Genest. He was great with all his tattoos, and looked awesome on screen. if you don't know, Rick is covered from head to toe in tattoos. They are mostly of the skeletal variety, leading to Rick being nicknamed 'Zombie Boy' & 'Skull Boy'. When some people see him all tatted up it may make them gasp and wonder what the hell is wrong with him. But makeup company DermaBlend Pro did not see it that way... they saw a great opportunity to use his tattoos as a perfect example of the age old adage 'You can't judge a book by it's cover'. They put Rick through a full cover up of his tats, filmed it, and then came up with a crazy commercial on just how amazing their makeup is. The resulting video was great... and proves the above saying to a T. It is pretty cool, so check it out after the jump...
