Video: Guinness World Record Holder Uses Tongue To Paint Beaver Portrait
A Los Angeles man who currently holds the Guinness World Record for having the longest tongue recently lick-painted a beaver (no, not that beaver—get your mind out of the gutter!).
Nick Stoeberl, the 26-year-old artist and stand-up comedian with a 3.97-inch tongue, used his licker as a paintbrush, dipping it in acrylic paint (with his tongue covered in plastic wrap), and painted a portrait of a giant beaver over the course of six hours. The result was rather impressive, considering he was painting with his tongue on a 24 inch by 36 inch canvas.
It even snagged him the record of "Largest Painting Of A Beaver Painted Using Tongue" (a record we're pretty sure nobody else has attempted to snag before), on RecordSetter.com.
"It's a gift," Stoeberl told the Huffington Post. "I have to use it."
This is A THING for Stoeberl, who also has apparently painted a portrait of Steve Harvey. If you venture over to his YouTube channel, you'll find his other works of art. He has a web series called "Tongue Show," which seems to be a weird variety show where he plays an instrument or licks a raw squid and then paints something with his tongue—like a martini.
And if you've fallen in love with his rare beaver painting, it can be yours for the going price of $1 million, according to Stoeberl's Craigslist ad. "Serious inquiries, only."

His latest solo exhibition is titled “Flutterluster,” showing at Los Angeles gallery Matter Studio. It features large works that incorporate what Huss describes as a “fluttering line” that he’s been playing with ever since he was a child — going on 50 years.
It's set to open by mid-to-late February.
