Comedian Dressed As Superman Hit By Bus While Pretending To Stop It

You might think that Superman can do anything but this impersonator let the team down when he pretended to stop a bus... only for it to run him over:


That was the moment 'Superman' is hit by a bus before going on to thank the 'hand of God' for saving his life.

Luiz Ribeiro de Andrade, who goes by 'Superman', was hit by a bus in the Brazilian municipality of Barra dos Coqueiros when his stunt went wrong on the afternoon of 30 May.

The 35-year-old presenter was filming himself as he tried to mimic halting the vehicle.

He can be seen calmly walking away after being hit by the bus while joking: "Now I've seen I really am made of steel."

During another part of the video, you can here him say: "I'll make a complaint about this vehicle's brakes. They're not working."

In an interview given to F5 News the following day, Luiz said he miscalculated his distance and ended up being hit by the vehicle.

He also said the accident was completely his fault and there was no problem with the bus' brakes, as he suggested in his video.

He told F5 News: "I take responsibility for everything. I went to the bus company so that the driver would not be penalised. There was no problem with the brakes.

"He did what he could and I acted wrong. It's a stunt I always do, but this time it almost turned into an accident, and it wasn't serious because the hand of God was there.

"I didn't feel anything with the knock. I was hit through my own fault and a miracle of God took place there. God acted at that time and protected me."

The transport company, Setransp, issued a statement emphasising 'the importance of attention to traffic (and) ensuring all necessary care'.

A stunt that went much worse involved a 115-foot cliff dive and some water.

Jon Gleason took the plunge at at Birdsboro, Pennsylvania, leaping from a ledge 35 metres above the water below him.

Gleason was filmed by his friends as he took the jump and then tried to transition into a reverse spin in the air. However, he evidently lost control - when he hit the water, his arms could be seen flailing helplessly as he panicked.

It's estimated he would have been travelling at 55mph as he hit the water, given the height he had jumped from. Thankfully for Gleason, he had a friend in the water ready and waiting for him in case the stunt did indeed go wrong.
