The Incredible Hulk comes to life when Paulo Henrique dos Santos, 35, painted himself green to resemble the green giant. But, unlike the Hulk, Henrique couldn’t transform back into his normal self because the paint would not come off no matter how hard he scrubbed.

Henrique, a pool attendant from Vila Cruzerio in Brazil, dressed up as the character for a running event. The Hulk-impersonator tried scrubbing away the green after the event, but discovered that he bought paint used for ballistic missiles and nuclear submarines.

According to Brazilian news site Extra.globo.com, Henrique wanted to buy a paint he’d previously used to turn into the Hulk, but the store did not have it.

Henrique tried to get the paint off: he spent Sunday and Monday having “about 20 baths,” and slept in a room lined with plastic bags. Henrique is scared that the industrial paint could lead to lead poisoning, although he has not shown any symptoms.

Henrique was popular in town before because he is a DJ – MC Marronzinho – working in Rio de Janerio, but his fame skyrocketed after this Hulk incident.

The local press ran pictures of the DJ showing his ‘girlfriend’ trying to remove the paint (the woman pictured was actually his mother).

Finally, after 24 days, and with the help of his friends, Henrique was able to remove the paint.
