The 2016 presidential election is clearly pushing people to their breaking points.

The painful journey will (hopefully) end in a matter of hours, but until then, we must sit back, freak out and deal with a slew of outrageous stunts from media outlets.

We’ve already seen CNN take over the damn Empire State Building by projecting election results onto the building while livestreaming it on Facebook.

How do you top that? Nudity, of course.

New York Magazine has decided that the best way to keep people’s attention during this excruciatingly long process is to livestream the electoral map being painted on naked people.

Oh yes, that’s right. Trina Merry, a bodypainting artist, currently has eight nude men and women sprawled out on a large white paper containing a drawing of our great nation. She has outlined the United States on the models, and is updating the “living electoral map” in real time by adding blue and red paint to each state, once the results are announced.

A truly awkward and visibly uncomfortable display of political creativity. Just please, let us know when this election is over.
