Young Rival Face Painting Video: James Kuhn's Paints People For Band's Song, 'Two Reasons'

Posted: Updated:

If you thought face painting was for children's birthday parties we have a surprise for you.

Ontario rock band Young Rival and master face painter James Kuhn recently joined forces for possibly the most intense face painting session of all time, brought to you in music video form.

The video for "Two Reasons" takes face painting to new jaw-dropping, and sometimes uncomfortable, heights. Against a jet-black background Kuhn turns human faces into baby bodies, monkey rumps, popcorn boxes and, of course, Chewbacca. Just when we thought we couldn't love Kuhn any more, we went to his website and realized he still uses LiveJournal. Awesome.
