This guy’s first-ever song hit the top of the Spotify charts in Norway, so he did this. Er, wow.

Mads Hansen used to spend most of his time as a midfielder for a Norwegian soccer team. But then the creative muse struck him and he turned to music. He promised to some buddies that if the song–called “Summerkroppen” (translation: “Summer Body”)–reached the top of the domestic Spotify chart that he’d memorialize the achievement with a tattoo.

The bet was graduated. If the song made it into the top 20, he promised to bleach his teeth super-white. If it made the top 10, he’d get duck lips with an injection of Restylane. The tattoo clause would only be invoked if it reached #1.

Much to everyone’s surprise, the song did top the chart, so Hansen–who is vehemently against tattoos–had to follow through with his bet.

The tattoo features the top 3 songs from the Spotify chart on his butt.
