1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Paintful Death", Way to Die #192, is the seventh Segment in "Death: A User's Manual". It was aired on February 22, 2009.


Fernando is not just a boxing trainer, he's also an artist. His boss bought him spray paint to get done with painting the walls. The problem with him is he didn't read the instructions for the spray paint beforehand, and as a result, his paint gun stops working while he was working on the walls in his gym. Fernando thinks he can fix it by shaking it around, but unfortunately, it works again while aiming at his left leg, causing the paint to make his leg swell up, split his femoral artery, and enter his bloodstream, killing him after the chemicals in the paint damaged his brain.
