Anyone who travels in Europe has seen those people on the side of the sidewalk trying to get coins from tourists by doing things like posing super-still as statues and so forth.
The novelty wears off pretty fast.
But this combo — seen near the Colosseum in Rome — was actually pretty impressive.
Without any break, a guy appears to be sitting on a pole, held up by another guy with his arm straight out.
There has to be a trick. On Twitter, someone suggested that there’s a contraption underneath the lower guy’s robe holding it all up.
Anyone know for sure?
