人魚に憧れ、16歳で尾びれ販売会社を立ち上げた「人魚男」 美しく泳ぐ姿をご覧下さい

おとぎ話などに登場する「人魚」はもちろん架空の生き物ですが、なんとこの現代に「人魚」を名乗る人物が存在しているのだとか!


こちらの動画を見てください。きらびやかなオレンジの尾びれをひらめかせ、悠々と水中を泳ぎまわる人影......。これはまさしく人魚! ですがよく見てみると、なんかガッチリムッチリ。そうです、彼はマーメイド男なのです。






この動画を見たユーザーは

「あなたの尾びれは、人生で見たものの中で一番美しい! 本当よ」
「彼は水中の悪魔だな。いうなればジ・アルティメット・アクアマンだ!」
「セクシーガイ! お前の長く続く肺活量が大好きだ! すごくナチュラルでホットだぜ。動画もっとくれ」
「彼はなんて美しいんだ! 彼のボーイフレンドが憎いよ...」
「セクシーマーマン... ネメシス(ギリシア神話の女神)...」

などとその美しさを絶賛。魅了される人が続出です。これはもう人魚姫と言っていいのでは。

彼はエリック・ドゥシャームさん(22歳)。この尾ひれはエリックさんが開発したもので、ラテックスゴムなどでできています。

エリックさんはアメリカのテレビ番組「マイ・クレイジー・オブセッション」にも出演。ちなみにこの番組は、奇妙なものに取り付かれた人たちを紹介するリアリティ・ショーです。





番組内でエリックさんは、
「マーメイドは僕のライフスタイルさ。はじめはみんな僕を見て変な風に思うよね。お口あんぐりって感じ。でも、マーメイドになって水に入ると、社会から解放されるんだ。その瞬間がすごく好きだね」
と、水面(みなも)に横たわりながら(人魚の正座)語っています。彼は週3日、1時間半泳いでいて、水中で4分間も息を止めることができるそうですよ。

さらに番組では、エリックさんの母親とゲイのパートナーもコメントしているので、そちらも紹介します。

母親「エリックは昔からマーメイドにお熱なの。誰にだって夢中になるものはあるでしょ? 彼にとってそれがマーメイドだったってわけ」
パートナーのマシューさん「エリックとはじめて会ったとき、"僕、マーメイドなんだ"って自己紹介されたんだよ。そんなやつ、いる? ワーオ、って言うしかないよね」

幼いころからマーメイドに憧れていたエリックさんは、なんと16歳のころにマーメイドテイルを販売する会社「マーテイラー」を設立。ウェブサイトなどで通信販売しているそうです。

マーメイドテイルは各種取り揃え中。シリコン製のこちらは$2,575(税込み)です。

「オレもマーメイドになりたい!」と思った方は、ぜひチェックしてみてはいかがでしょうか。
