I agree - if they had painted it in say a somewhat bright orange even - to invoke fire - it might've worked.

That or some sort of varigated pattern to show the face of the person better.

You do have a point there - I wonder if Jason figured to use red for that reason. Good study of the culture, just a bad choice in this case. NOT horrid choice (the overall effect was good) but bad enough to go from safe to bottom two.
