Jake Paul given $250k in cash in exchange for getting tattoo
| Last updated
People have been left divided over Jake Paul's latest tattoo he got in return for a whopping $250,000.
You can see the tattoo he got in the video below:
I can't lie, if I was offered a quarter-of-a-million to get a tattoo, I would definitely consider it - we're in a cost of living crisis after all.
However, for Jake Paul - who as of last year has an estimated net worth of $38 million - the challenge is slightly more questionable.
But then again, $250,000 (£207,000) is still $250,000, right? Although, wait until you see what he had to get tattooed.
Ahead of his fight against former Love Islander Tommy Fury, Paul took on DJ Charlie Sloth who challenged the YouTuber turned boxer to receive a gift of $250,000 cash if he got a bottle of Blue Raspberry Au Vodka tattooed on his arm - Sloth a co-owner of the alcoholic drink brand.
In a video uploaded to Sloth's Instagram, Paul joked he would've got the tattoo 'for free' because of the DJ being a friend of his.
Nevertheless, the boxer still sat down and got tatted in return for the golden case-full of cash.
It hasn't taken long for people to flood to the comments in debate over Paul's decision to get the tattoo in return for the hefty sum.
Some praised DJ Sloth's bet with the boxer as an example of 'marketing at its finest'.
"Big marketing technique I rate it," one commented.
Another resolved: "To any brand marketing is key and that is a great marketing move puts the drink In people's mind or is a talking point .. you can’t pay for that much marketing for word of mouth."
Others simply wished they could've been challenged by DJ Sloth instead.
"I'll get that on my forehead for $100," a user wrote.
A second added: "I'm next lol."
And some condemned the move, noting Paul doesn't really need the money, can easily just get it removed or they believe the tattoo isn't real.
"Woulda been better w a random person instead of a multi millionaire icl," one wrote.
Another said: "Fake tattoo why would you do that if you fighting in two weeks. It won’t heal."
A third added: "No hate but getting a tat before a big fight is not a good move. Not healing aside, the chance of bacteria and infection is the part that's worrisome."
"Funny it’s not on his arm in his recent story," a fourth noticed.
A final said: "He's getting that covered up as soon as it heals."
