Oliver Paass' Oddball Tenpin Tools Will Make You Lose Your Head

Oliver Paass has created a ghastly set of bowling balls for an ad campaign that will have you running for the hills. There are so many great horror films in existence that feature a headless victim, and these gory severed heads are great for providing a good scare. The balls were designed by the famous spray gun artist Oliver Paass and were created by the Jung Von Matte advertising agency for a German horror TV channel.

Paass paints the balls in a painstakingly long process that involves spraying the balls in a 360-degree layout to capture every last detail. The special-edition balls were swapped for regular balls in German bowling alleys in an effort to advertise the German horror channel and to shock some fear into the local bowlers.
