London bus does push-ups
An artist transformed a London doubledecker bus into an athlete doing push-ups to promote the Olympics.
Czech artist David Cerny created the unique red mechanical artwork in honour of the London 2012 games, reports Metro.
Cerny bought the six tonne bus in Holland before attaching two gigantic electrical arms which lift the body of the vehicle up and down.
Powered by an electrical engine, each push-up is accompanied by a recording of sounds evoking tough physical effort.
Mr Cerny hopes the vehicle, named the London Booster, will become the unofficial mascot of the Games.
"There is one common exercise for every sportsman in the world, and that is push-ups," he explained.
what do you think?
now all it's left to do is take a busman's holiday and enrol at the local gym/////////////////////////
BUT IT IS NOT, AND NEVER HAS BEEN, A LONDON BUS!!!! The man is a fool. So too are the Orange/Sky journalists who obviously think that if it is a red bus, it is a London bus. For the record, a London bus of the day would have been an AEC RT, as the Routemaster was not in full production at the time. The bus shown is a Bristol Lodekka.
