This isn't the first time we've written about body paint pranks here at FHM and we certainly hope it won't be the last. It's not so much the sex appeal that we find most awesome about body paint (although that's a plus), but the priceless reactions of innocent bystanders. Sure, the paint looks insanely realistic, but no matter how talented the artist — there's no mistaking paint for real jeans, at least not after taking a closer look.
With the assistance of her daughter and model, Maria Luciotti, talented body paint artist, Jen Seidel, created a daring painted-on look that would be shared with hundreds of shopper a local Maryland mall. You can see the progression in the video below. We're not going to lie to you guys, it's pretty riveting stuff from start to finish.
For those of you who don't reside in America, or more specifically, the East Coast, you might not realize just how cold it gets around these parts come Winter. The idea of wearing only body paint and a measly hat/scarf combo is enough to make our, well, parts, shrink immediately. Jen Seidel explained to LadBible:
"Because it was a bit chilly outside, we threw on a hat and a scarf and jumped in the car. My heart was skipping beats from the adrenaline that kicked in as we approached the entrance to the mall. I love to stand back from afar and watch people react to it,' she said. 'Many do not know the models are wearing only paint. You tell them it's paint and they look, but it sometimes still doesn't register until they ask to touch it.'"

Well, hats off to both Jen and her model because this look was nothing if not a mesmerizing artistic accomplishment. Who knows, guys, maybe the next time you're walking around your local shopping mall and you see a woman with really tight pants on, it'll turn out to be body paint. Of course, don't you dare go asking her that — we're just saying, you never know!
