Not sure what this guy was smoking when he came up with this idea, but it’s awesome! The London double-decker bus athlete is the brainchild of a Czech artist David Cerny, who built this to celebrate London Olympic Games opening in the British capital on Friday. He says push up is a common exercise every athlete does regardless of his field, and that’s why he decided to mix it up with a British icon – the double-decker bus.
As bonkers as the idea is, it is very well executed. The 6-tonne bus looks great in action, as you can see in this video:
David Cerny, whose past works have enraged European politicians and sought to poke fun at rival artists, has installed the bus outside the Czech Olympic House in London’s Islington neighborhood. Cerny bought the 1957 bus from an owner in the Netherlands, attached two huge arms, an electrical engine and a lot of wiring and suspension tools to make it into a piece of art named “London Boosted”.
