  • Description

    No title.

    M/S of a strongman posing to show his physique. He turns and strikes various traditional muscle man poses. C/U of him smiling as he flexes his biceps. "John" demonstrates how he can walk up walls - he has his hands on one wall and his feet on the other and he makes his way up the space between them. A crowd watches this stunt. It is pretty impressive.

    Intertitle reads: "Looks as though he's defying the law of gravity! He then makes his way down again. He turns himself sideways. He gets to the bottom and stands facing the camera.

    Note: this story may have originally belonged to another EVEPIC can.
