A tourist taking the "22 push-up challenge" to raise awareness of PTSD took the challenge to a new level by performing his exercises on top of an elephant.
Jerry Romine said he was participating in the viral "22 push-up challenge," which called on participants to perform 22 push-ups a day for 22 days to raise awareness of post traumatic stress disorder in veterans, when he passed through Thailand.
Romine said he and his friends found an elephant trainer south of Chiang Mai, Thailand, who agreed to let him perform his daily push-ups on the pachyderm's back.
The elephant patiently allows Romine to complete his exercises without protestation of any sorts.
This is rather strange and odd, one would think the elephant was under a spell or charm. The video is already viral on YouTube.
