If you thought Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" music video was trippy, prepare to enter a new realm of body art.

This optical illusion was made by Emma Hack, the Gotye video visionary who calls herself a skin illustrator on her website. The unorthodox artist really outdoes herself this time, using body paint to transform 17 naked (and quite nimble) participants into the shape of a mangled automobile. The result is startlingly convincing and a bit frightening, which is the point. The post-crash blue form, which took Hack 18 hours to complete, is part of the campaign for the Australian Motor Accident Commission (MAC), which aims to prevent low-level speeding.

Watch Hack turn a crowd of naked people into a totalled vehicle in the slideshow below and let us know what you think in the comments section. If we got you feeling all nostalgic about Gotye's hit, check out his video in our collection of 10 music videos we can't stop watching.

    “The community today considers illegal drink driving to be unacceptable, but that view doesn’t yet extend to low-level speeding, even when the crash risks are the same. We wanted to address this misperception head-on and make drivers understand we all play a part, whether you’re in a crash or not”, said Fleet. The image was made possible with the help of Adelaide body paint artist Emma Hack, who gained global recognition for her work when she painted singers Gotye and Kimbra for the video of his hit song Somebody That I Used to Know. It took a total of 18 hours to create, using 17 men and women – each with up to five layers of paint applied to their bodies. "Technically, it's probably the most difficult job I have ever done” said Ms Hack. “It's quite magical how it's turned out."
