Bus push-ups - just the ticket

Czech Artist David Cerny has created something quite unusual in an attempt to promote the 2012 London Olympics. He's transformed a London double-decker bus into an athlete doing push-ups

He created the unique red mechanical artwork in honour of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Cerny bought the six-ton bus in Holland and then attached two huge electrical arms which lift and lower the body of the bus.

UNOFFICIAL MASCOT?

As the bus goes about its workout, its effort and determination is evident as it moans and groans through each push-up.  

Cerny has named the bus The London Booster and hopes it will become the unofficial mascot of the games.

"There is one common exercise for every sportsman in the world, and that's push-ups," he explained.
