It’s Questlove…..it’s Reggie Watts…..nah it’s just some afro lovin’ software tester from Massachusetts. Four years and an incalculable amount ofHead and Shoulders, Suave Ocean Breeze and Pantene Pro V later, Dracut, MA’s’ Alan Labbe has grown what has now been deemed the world’s largest male afro’ by Guinness World Records.
Labbe, who claims the attention his lusty locks attracts is comparable to that of a rock star, can barely see (or probably hear) as his five foot in circumference sags over his eyes, engulfs his ears and covers most of his cheeks.
Inspiration for the funky ‘do?
None other than Bob Ross, the infamous creator and host of “The Joy of Painting,” who regularly painted “happy trees,” “almighty mountains” and “fluffy clouds” on television. And while Labbe’s monstrous mane undoubtedly has Ross beat, Labbe plans to maintain his fuzz cut, citing that the attention he constantly gets, “never gets old.”
