To hype up the 2012 Olympic Games in London, artist David Cerny created an incredibly eye-catching public installation. And with the Olympics upon us again four years later, this time in Rio, the art piece is still incredibly intriguing. Cerny turned a London bus into a machine that appears to be an athlete doing push-ups.
No detail is spared: the bus even makes noises similar to the ones you'd hear from someone working out. The six-ton bus is attached to two hydraulic arms—incredibly muscled hydraulic arms—and was located outside of the Czech Olympic House in Islington during the 2012 games. The London Booster, as it's been named, can now be found outside the Agrofert Headquarters in Prague.
