An Australian tradie has discovered what can happen when you hit a spray paint can with a shovel.
Ah yes, that age old question has finally been answered. Many people have often wondered what possibilities lurk within a spray paint can and how its contents could work in such an explosive manner.
Loads of wondered, but only one man was brave enough to actually follow through with it.
The shirtless tradie can be seen in the video standing at the worksite in nothing but his work boots and some footy shoots.
He carefully placed the can on the ground in such a fashion that would give him the easiest striking position.
Then, like a golfer trying to line up the perfect drive off the tee, he grabbed his shovel, eyed up the object and struck hard.
It's hard to imagine the result that occurred for this tradesman (even though many could have predicted it), but, shockingly, he was covered in paint. Let's hope his eyes nor his mouth was open at the point of contact.
The bloke discovered an immediate William Wallace Braveheart costume idea for next year's Halloween. In much the same way Homer made Marge his make-up gun, this guy now knows what to do on October 31 just before the party starts.
The video has absolutely blown up on social media.
In addition to the Braveheart references, some also likened it to a bogan gender reveal party and even claimed the guy was now a walking flag because he was 'red on the back and blue in the front'.
One person said: "There's a reason construction jobs are so dangerous...too many dudes having fun like this."
Another added: "I'm glad to see he's wearing boots for safety."
A third wrote: "This dude is pouring concrete in his underwear. He's going to have a lot more problems than just being blue..."
We'll never know how long it took for all the blue paint to be wiped off, nor if the guy suffered any long-term or even short-term damage as a result of this hilarious stunt. It goes without saying that you shouldn't try this at home, it's not worth the likes.
