GAH! Memphis Grizzlies fan’s face paint job is straight-up nightmare fuel (photo)


All references to David Puddy’s “Gotta support the team” philosophy as it relates to face painting aside, the amount of time and effort that must have been required for one Memphis Grizzlies fan to show just how much he backs his beloved NBA team by showing up at the game with the above detailed and disturbing face paint job certainly deserves credit.

And still, odds are at least a few children seated near this fan were horrified and possibly traumatized by the sight. The spooky eyes painted upon his eyelids — an unintentional nod to “Thriller,” perhaps? — really ties the terrifying look together.

Don’t look right into the demon bear’s eyes. You may lose your very soul:


Yikes. For what it’s worth, the man’s efforts to be the scariest fan inside FedExForum were rewarded, as the Grizzlies outscored the Oklahoma City Thunder 9-3 in overtime to win Game 4 by a score of 103-97 and take a 3-1 series lead.
