Pawel Ladzial aka “The Polish Viking” has found social media success as an incredibly fit silver fox. Except that he’s not exactly what he seems.
Via Oddity Central:
Pawel often gets mentioned as one of the hottest-looking men over 40, and admits that some people who see his photos think that he’s around 60-years-old. And who can blame them? After all, he must be pretty old for his hair to have gone completely white, right? Well, Pawel Ladziak is only 35-years-old, and dyes his hair and beard white frequently in order to maintain this older look. And for good reason, as he credits this transformation for his social media success.
In an interview with Polish website Wirtualna Polska, Pawel said that he didn’t like the “salt and pepper” way his hair was graying, so he decided to dye both his hair and beard completely white. It was only then that he became popular on social media as the “old-but-incredibly-fit” guy.
People were intrigued by this seemingly elderly man and his enviable physique, and before he knew it, Pawel became an influencer with over 330,000 followers on Instagram.
The Instagram star often posts side-by-side photos of himself in his youth and now, and it’s nearly impossible to tell that they are the same person. His story makes his fans love him even more, and find inspiration in his impressive transformation.
Hot. I guess? What do you think? Yes? Yes, definitely?
