The Facebook video scam: "[12+ VIDEO] You Will Not Use Head & Shoulders Shampoo After Watching This Video," will take Facebook users to a fake Facebook website, in an attempt to trick them into sharing it or completing surveys, by promising to show them a video of an unusual and abnormal creature growing on someone's body. But, it is a scam and there is no video.

The image on the person's skin is a "Lotus Seed Pod", and it was edited and placed on the skin using a photo editing software like PhotoShop.
