The Silver Surfer is probably not the silliest comic book character ever created (shout to Calendar Man, who is flat out ridonk), but when it comes to preposterous it doesn’t get much better than a man made of silver who flies through space on a surfboard. That is, unless you are a regular dude named Jesse Wellens of PrankvsPrank who got painted up to ride through the streets of NYC on an electric surfboard.
With body paint by the preposterously talented Alexys Fleming of MadeYewLook, Wellens looks the business – and the citizens of NYC certainly seem to agree! Check out a video of Wellens riding through town, along with some behind-the-scenes videos of the paint application and the video shoot, below.
#SILVERSURFER! Oh my god, im freaking out. First off, the painting video is NOW UP on my channel, #madeyewlook! Also check out the main video on @jessewelle's channel where he KILLED IT surfing around NYC!! It was also awesome to meet @caseyneistat in person finally, shout out to him for shooting Jesse's video! I couldn't stay for the entire shoot of going around NY, because I had to fly home the same night, but it was amazing working with both of you guys!
