And I'm just going to go right ahead and say that the reason was probably money.
Yesterday we saw that EA managed to convince an ex-Pussycat Doll to do the Crysis 3 bodypaint thing, but Aussies got stuck with Jarryd. I guess it makes a little more sense for relatively buff athlete to be body painted like this, to be fair, but still... bloody hell!

But yeah, I suppose the mainstream media eats this kind of stuff up! I actually live within walking distance of the Eels stadium. Go the Eels I guess!
