LONDON, Eng. -- You know those famous double-decker buses associated with London? Well a Czech republic artist created a sculpture that pays homage to the buses and the Olympic Summer Games.

It is a “pumped up” rendition of a London double-decker bus weighing at nearly six tons. The sculpture is has souped-up suspension and is wired to allow “it” to do pushups. Onlookers will hear a groaning voice that accompanies the pushups.

The artist said the sculpture to commemorate the kickoff to the Olympic Games Friday.
