Nippon Paint recently released a fresh series of shocking advertisements. The ads feature a series of people with the most outrageous piercings one has ever seen.

By far the scariest ad is the one that displays a man who has pierced his nose with a live snake. Snakes are scary enough, but this man was brave enough to let one slither through his face.

The Nippon Paint promotions are accompanied by the line, "Now give your nose something else to do." The ads demonstrate how the art of shock advertisements is a great way to gain attention. It's hard to imagine these images are selling paint, because all one can think about is how painful piercings can be. Stats for Grotesque Piercing Promotions Trending: Older & Mild
