Vladimir Franz, a university teacher, painter and composer, announced today that he is planning to run for President in the Czech Republic’s 2013 elections, Prague Daily Monitor reports.
Franz stands out from other candidates — he has tattoos that cover his entire face and body, as well as a variety of piercings and a dye that makes his hair blue.
Before he can compete in the elections, Franz must collect 50,000 signatures. Betting sites are not giving him good odds at present, but he is placing higher than some candidates. One Reddit user says that despite his appearance, Franz’s policies are actually strikingly normal (so far).
