  • - Alright guys, what's up?

  • How's it goin'? Hey, what's up?

  • Hello, hello, alright anyway, let's get on with the video.

  • I really wanna get more Instagram followers

  • so why don't you guys follow me?

  • That's the whole video.

  • It's just a little vlog of me asking you guys to follow me.

  • No, for real, I really wanna get more Instagram followers.

  • Right now I have about 8,000 on my Instagram page

  • Which may seem like a lot

  • but compared to other social media people who have

  • millions and millions and millions and millions and millions

  • of followers, it really isn't that much.

  • So I've been doing some research

  • and it seems like what's really popular

  • on Instagram right now is body painting.

  • Which is basically just female models

  • getting painted in clothes and it looks like they're dressed

  • but they're actually naked.

  • So all I have to do is get one

  • of these accounts to use me as their model.

  • I spent the next few hours trying to contact

  • every single body painting Instagram page I could find.

  • Guys, Jen the Body Painter,

  • who get millions and millions of views

  • on each one of her posts just agreed to use me as her model.

  • I am super excited to do this.

  • I hope I get a bunch of followers out of this.

  • Let's go.

  • Hey, how's it goin'?

  • - Good, good, good.

  • Is there anything I can do to prepare for this?

  • - Wax the whole body?

  • Do it for the Instagram followers.

  • So I'm heading downtown to get a sugar wax.

  • Sugaring's supposed to hurt a lot less than regular waxing.

  • It's just lemon, water,

  • and what the (bleep) was the last ingredient?

  • - Oh sugar, there we go.

  • (laughing)

  • So it's not hot, you're not gonna get burnt,

  • and they pull in the direction that your hair grows.

  • I don't know why I'm doing this.

  • I got to the salon and I was really nervous.

  • So was the lady.

  • I had a lot of chest hair and I asked her

  • if maybe I could have a local anesthetic or something.

  • She gave me some baby powder.

  • (groaning)

  • Oh, man.

  • (heavy metal music)

  • (screaming)

  • Hurt so bad I ended up passing out.

  • When I woke up and looked down I realized

  • I have a 13-year-old Bar Mitzvah bod.

  • I took my hairless bod to go buy some very little underwear

  • because I can't be naked in the shoot.

  • I met Jen the Body Painter and her whole family

  • but before we started shooting,

  • I wanted to learn a little bit about how they got into this.

  • It stemmed from like using bodies to advertise things?

  • - Pretty much 'cause when I got painted

  • as a cheetah I got so much attention.

  • - Is it very different than regular painting?

  • - Oh yeah because the person moves.

  • So with like a canvas, you just can just sit there for hours

  • and play your music whatever, feel really relaxed.

  • - So how long does it take usually?

  • - Captain America was seven to eight hours.

  • For you, right now what we're getting ready to do

  • it's gonna take us two and a half hours.

  • - So you guys are like a family who just...

  • - Does really weird things together.

  • So I would literally come home from school

  • and as soon as I'd walk in the door,

  • like our kitchen is in sight,

  • so I would see like topless girls just walking around.

  • - My mom never painted naked models in my house.

  • It was just like my dad walking around naked.

  • Anyway, time for me to get naked.

  • It was awkward because I realized I'm at work.

  • - What the (bleep) is happening right now?

  • (laughing)

  • We then had to take a bunch of pictures for the thumbnail.

  • Being an instagrammer isn't easy.

  • Then they gave me so pre-painted shorts,

  • so they didn't have to paint my, you know.

  • Looked at their phone to find pictures of clothes

  • and started painting.

  • (electronic music)

  • She also had to paint inside my belly button.

  • That was a big no-no.

  • (electronic music)

  • Time for the big reveal.

  • Oh dude! Holy (bleep)!

  • Wow!

  • Oh my god.

  • Yo, it looks so good!

  • Wow!

  • If anybody watches Friends, when Bruce Willis talks

  • to himself and he's like "Who's a sex machine?"

  • I'm a sex machine right now.

  • I said that and nobody laughed so it made me uncomfortable.

  • (laughing)

  • This painting is insane.

  • You did that on me while I was like talking and laughing?

  • - [Jen] Yeah.

  • - How's my butt look?

  • - [Jen] Great. - [Second artist] Amazing

  • - [Jen] Never looked better.

  • - It's time to go out,

  • see if people notice, see what people think.

  • BuzzFeed, get ready for Naked Eric.

  • (acapella singing)

  • At first people didn't even notice.

  • And when they did, they didn't know what it was.

  • - Are those leggings? - [Eric] Yeah!

  • - Are they even pants or are they just leggings?

  • - That feels like your skin.

  • Is it your skin?

  • - [Eric] It's my skin.

  • - Wait. What the (bleep)?

  • - Oh wait. Oh my god it's paint.

  • (laughing)

  • - This is...

  • (laughing)

  • - I'm naked.

  • (laughs)

  • - It looked like a real shirt.

  • I'm like that is a small, tiny shirt.

  • Oh my god.

  • (laughs)

  • - Are you a little cold?

  • It's a bit nipplely in here.

  • - You're wearing underwear because...

  • - No, no, no.

  • My penis is taped to my leg.

  • (laughing)

  • No, no, no, I'm kidding.

  • It's not, I'm wearing underwear.

  • - Oh thank god, thank god.

  • - How would it be taped?

  • To what?

  • - It's also blizzarding outside

  • so maybe not the wisest choice today but...

  • - Not at all, I have to go outside

  • - I cannot stop staring at your penis.

  • I am so sorry Eric, I just can't do it.

  • - Look at my eyes, that's who I am.

  • - Now you know how I feel all the time.

  • - So this was super fun.

  • Most people had no idea.

  • It took a lot of people a long time to realize

  • I was painted and once they realized, they were

  • so impressed with the paint job.

  • So I think that's the coolest thing about this video

  • was like how good these guys are at what they do.

  • Body painting truly is an art form, it's really impressive.

  • Now I'm gonna head home, figure out how to wash this off.

  • Getting home sucked because there was a blizzard outside

  • and well, paint doesn't really keep you warm.

  • (heavy metal music)

  • My nipples are so hard right now.

  • Showering was fun though, I looked like a human bath bomb.

  • It looked pretty cool.

  • I've been in the shower for 45 minutes,

  • and it's still not coming off.

  • And my whole shower is bleached black.

  • So I just finished editing, it's been a week.

  • And here's the update: Jen the body painter has posted

  • my post, she tagged me in it.

  • It currently has over 500,000 views.

  • And my Instagram page

  • (drum roll)

  • I only got 100 followers.

  • I waxed my whole body for 100 followers.

  • I've been itchy all week for 100 followers.

  • Everyone just cared about the body painters,

  • and not about me.

  • I'm not giving up, though.

  • I'm gonna keep making these videos

  • till I get a million followers.

  • (soft jazz music)

- Alright guys, what's up?
