Mr. Scot

How'd they get THAT job?

Some years back, Sports Illustrated's annual swimsuit issue ran a spread with models wearing only body paint. In years since, it's become a regular feature. And of course, someone has to actually apply the paint.

You ever wonder how exactly somebody nets that assignment? :lol:

What are some other jobs you look at and ask that same question?

What are your theories - real or fanciful - on the process?

not quite answering your question, but I read an article about a guy who pretended to be gay and got a spot on the cleaning crew of the SI body painting thing. He just swept floors, etc. The girls and the staff were suspicious of everyone (well, every guy) working there. He said if he looked around for even a second the models would instantly look over with laser beam eyes and he'd have to either look back down quickly and keep sweeping or say something innocent (or flamboyant lol). It was very difficult to stay in there and keep his eyes elsewhere. I'd take that challenge tho :D

In my experience success equates to several things.

Right place / Right time

Grabbing an opportunity when it is there.

and most of all

Hard work and Dedication

When all three things line up you can be the guy with "That job"

my buddy and the owner of the shop (their both tattoo artists) go to Florida every year around October to do body painting, they don't get to do anything for any magazines, but they have painted plenty of hotties though...

How do you demonstrate hard work and dedication to body painting models?

So... they're getting naked to get painted, to get photographed, to get placed in a magazine for millions of guys to drool at, but they're suspicious of guys on set.

lol

I'm impressed that this thread has lasted more than six hours and Zod has yet to interject about how enviable and amazing his job is, photographing beautiful women and all.

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
