It seems Neymar got into the spirit of Halloween by doing something a little, well, frightening.
The Paris Saint-Germain star posted a photo of himself with green hair on his Instagram stories on Monday night, raising speculation that he prepared for an evening of debauchery in typical standout fashion.
Just what kind of look could the 25-year-old have been trying to achieve? A noted Batman fan, Neymar could be trying to emulate Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker in the film “The Dark Knight.”
Perhaps, considering his global appeal, he could have been preparing for an evening as Captain Planet. Wouldn’t a turn as Krusty the Clown from “The Simpsons” have been absolutely brilliant? It may have even been a homage to American singer Frank Ocean — no singing ability required.
Whatever the case, we’ll get a look on Tuesday when PSG host Anderlecht in the group stage of the Champions League. With it being Halloween night, maybe a green-haired Neymar will have a few tricks up his sleeve — and offer a few treats to the fans at the Parc des Princes.
