Terrifying? TERRIFYING! We aged 5 years just watching it. [This is officially the most viral post we've run on Lost At E Minor]

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Thursday 4 September 2014

Add a healthy dose of his signature surrealism via some intensely erotic paintings and you’ll get an idea why this is such a collector’s item.
