Sexy Grinch Is Stealing Hearts With His Raunchy Photoshoot

A man who dressed up as a 'sexy Grinch' for a hilarious festive themed photoshoot has gone viral.

Alex Drastal, 31, from San Diego, originally created the shoot a few years ago alongside friend and special effects makeup artist, Keaghlan Ashley - who created the outfit.

But in the festive spirit, the pair shared a throwback on social media a few days ago and it's since gone viral, racking up thousands of likes.

From lounging on a red sofa with just a Santa hat to cover his modesty, to sticking his bum out to the camera and seductively holding up a red rose and a glass of milk, people can't get enough of the saucy shoot!

"The initial response was hilarious and it still kind of is," said Alex.

"People loved it, people hated it, people were disgusted, people were confused, people were turned on - and I think that's why it went so viral it's because people didn't know what to do.

"The Grinch is sexy, but am I physically attracted to the Grinch? I don't think so. But I think people think the Grinch is sexy is because the Grinch is extremely confident.

"He is kind of a built kind of person, he's powerful, he's strong, he's sexy in a lot of different ways. Everywhere he goes he makes an entrance."

People found the shoot hilarious, with one person commenting: "You're not disgusting, you're just keeping up the THICC-mas!"

And another said: "You do justice to Jim Carey's Grinch!"

From the incredible make-up to applying the prosthetics and hair, Alex explained the shoot took hours to create.

"Keaghlan, my girlfriend at the time, and I all made the suit and put it together for a YouTube channel which sadly doesn't exist anymore, but they were the ones who actually funded the suit," Alex continued.

"And there was no way that I was getting up in this very realistic Grinch costume and not doing a sexy shoot. It needed to happen.

"I love Jim Carrey's Grinch, it's still my favourite rendition of the Grinch, so being the character was not only fun for me but something I've always wanted to do.

"Wearing the suit wasn't terribly hot, I mean it was December so it was pretty cool and I wasn't really wearing much else except the suit so it was kind of like wearing a giant onesie made of fur.

"The makeup and stuff took a while, about three to four hours' worth because it was not only applying the prosthetics but also airbrushing and laying all the hair and all of that takes a long time, so it took a while to get into it.

"Luckily Keaghlan already had the prosthetic moulded off of someone else and their face shape just happened to fit mine, so she didn't have to create a whole new one."

We can't get enough of this hilarious shoot, and as for whether we'll ever see the return of sexy grinch, never say never. "I would totally add it again," Alex said.
