Circus of Horrors performer Anastasia IV sets record by pulling a hearse with her hair

Anastasia IV is a Polish performance artist who tours with the Circus of Horrors troupe. She also can drag a hearse with her hair.

The performer recently pulled off the amazing — or, shall we say, hair-raising (…no, let’s not say that) — stunt in London, moving a 2.5-ton hearse 65 feet down Shaftesbury Avenue. The feat shouldn’t really have come as a surprise seeing as she already has her name in the Guinness Book of World Records for being able to lift another person with just her strong locks. Still, it’s hard not to be impressed with someone who can pull a giant automobile with only the power of a magnificent hairdo.

(You can check out a video of the stunt and an interview with Anastasia IV at The Telegraph.)

What’s especially cool is that Anastasia IV originally went to England to study biochemistry at the City of Westminster University, but she decided to leave school and join the circus instead. As someone with a B.A. in Unemployment who reeaallllyyyy should have chosen a more practical degree, I can only stand up and applaud.
