14 years ago, Paul Karason had fair skin and freckles. Today, he's a deep shade of blue, all thanks to his infomercial purchase. He bought an apparent cure-all miracle product called colloidal silver, a substance made from mixing water and an electrical current.
"The change was so gradual that I didn't perceive it, and the people around me, likewise, it was just so gradual no one really noticed," Karason said. "It wasn't until a friend I hadn't seen in several months came by to my parent's place to see me and he asked, What did you do?'"
This is totally real. It's not makeup, paint a strange tattoo or dye -- his skin actually IS this color.
