London Booster — The Bus that Does Pushup…

Outside of the Czech Olympic House in The London Borough of Islington, there is a 1957 double-decker bus is doing push-ups. Called the “London Booster,” it is one of a number of public sculptures around the city commissioned for the Games.

Created by Czech sculptor David Cerny, the six-ton bus has mechanical arms, windows made from television screens, and an engine that allows it to move up and down.

And to make it seem more real, grunting sound effects have been added.

See for yourself here.

Wonder how many the bus can do before it gets tired?
