Discussing the dude who speed-paints at NBA Halftime shows

At first we were disturbed by this painting of Nick Anderson, and then it turned into a painting of Nick Anderson.

We were perturbed and confused when we saw this still of a halftime performance in Orlando:

What the hell is going on here? There's a guy with a paintbrush? And a guitarist, who may be in Hinder?

We were even more perturbed when our resident GIFster made a GIF:

We looked up the person in question, Rock DeMarco, a speedpainter:

"PAINT IT LOUD"?!?!?! Loud is not a way you can paint. Paint is colors. Loud is sound.

We're starting to get really skeptical of this dude. This whole speed-painting thing is kinda dum-- wait

Hey, that actually does look kinda like Nick Anderson.
