If you've ever embraced the fact that the seaweed is always greener in somebody else's lake, or truly longed to be under the sea, then this 24-year-old's lifestyle will make you redder than Sebastian the crab with jealousy.
World, meet Atlanta's very own Eric Montel.
Yes, you see correctly. He's a living, breathing merman. Well, I guess mermen don't breathe. Wait, do they? I'm looking to phone a friend right about now, and that friend is King Triton.
Fortunately for all of humankind, Eric is a lot nicer than King Triton. WHY ARE HIS EYES RED? SOMEONE SHOULD CALM HIM DOWN.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, Eric dished on how long he's been flapping his fins, saying,
Eric offers his merman services under the name Rasta Merman Blix. Regarding about the appeal of becoming a merman, Eric added,
Eric also wants you to know that anybody can be a merman or a mermaid. He added,
Amen to that, Eric. What am I saying? A-mermen to that!
This merman is straight up inspiring. Follow my own current?
I'M LEGITIMATELY TEARING UP RIGHT NOW.
Seriously. Way to go, Eric. You keep doing you!
