Bodybuilder’s hilarious tanning fail

By Jay Busbee, Yahoo! Sport October 16, 2012, 1:24 pm

The first shots from the set of Avengers 2 are in, and wow ... is that a bold new direction for the Hulk, or what?

Wait, no. That's not right. (In more ways than one.)

The photo on the left - un-retouched, as you'll see below - is from the Arnold Classic Europe, a fitness expo/competition held this past weekend and started by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger himself.

The Governator, as you may know, got his start in bodybuilding, and he's always preached fitness and exercise, even in its most bizarre versions.

So, uh, without being too indiscreet: just what the heck happened here?

Well, bodybuilders tend to apply tanning product with a trowel, darkening their skin in an effort to enhance definition of all those muscles that the rest of us probably don't even have. Sure, it looks fairly ridiculous, but we're not going to tell him that.

As you can see in the video below, taken at the festival, the two-tone skin look isn't unique to our unidentified competitor above.

Hey, to each his own. These guys probably think you and your skinny little arms and legs look silly, too.

    Yes, JohhnyK, all these guys probably suffer from dysmorphia. Muscle dysmorphia isn't nicknamed 'bigorexia' for nothing, you twit. Yes, Australians are fat and increasingly unhealthy. Health, fitness and self awareness are all very important, even more than losing excess fat. These people are nuts though, even without their sequinned hummingbird smugglers and dental floss singlets..!

    and kenneth these extreme body builders arent necessarily healthy-they are often malnourished and are addicted to expensive and useless supplements and steroids-and their extreme regimes place unneccessary and advanced stress on the heart-bigger is not always better-and quite frankly and from a personal sexual viewpoint i find these men extremely unattractive

    yuck..these men are akin to tit implanted girls-they are insecure and wouldnt know how to use their tiny sausages to please a woman no matter how big their v8s are....most guys want normal looking women but admire hot ones-girls are the same ..and these guys arent the hot ones...
