'Buy My Face' was invented by two British students named Ross Harper and Ed Moyse as a way to pay off their massive student debt. Their total debt had amounted to a whopping total of $80,000 when the pair decided to start selling their faces as advertising space.

Every day the two paint their faces with whatever advertisements they have been paid for and even make a short video promoting the company. In the beginning, they were only charging one dollar and fifty cents but with popularity booming that price has risen all the way to $600. Harper and Moyse say that they will shut down their operation when their loans are payed off to pursue other entrepreneurial activities. Stats for Facevertising Fundraising Trending: Older & Mild
