Jamie Sommers did it 40 years ago.  In heels.

//His is just a Mini body with a particularly crappy set of wheels attached.

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's a picture of a Limey with a mini on his head.

Ummmmm, no. He balanced an empty shell that didnt weigh as much as he did on his head, had no real tires, and "just happened" to have blackout windows so no one could see everything else that got removed

Looks like a stripped shell that doesn't even have real wheels. Like a lot of the strong man stuff this is more showmanship than it is actually effort (see bending nails, etc).

Looks more like plastic instead of glass. And in the photo you can clearly see the front grill through the wheel well, clearly showing that there is no engine in it.

I have often felt that there should be an annual Ron Obvious Memorial Channel Jump over the U.K. I know that I would certainly participate.

I thought they were talking about tabletop gaming minis and was very dismissive about it.

The man admitted it only weighed 300 or so pounds instead of 1,300.  Still a pretty impressive feat; i'd like to see any Farkers here try it.

I have nothing but respect for the Mini, classic or Neo. Yet, I feel urges, barely repressed, to tip over every Smart Car I see.

Yeah, fake.

But still impressive. I enjoyed the video.

The most impressive part is he's raised 250k pounds for charity.

That's an old model of Astromech Droid that will give you nothing but problems.  Stick with R2 units.

Ackshully.......  It only weighed about 300 pounds...

"Mini" is so non-specific.

Meh. I'm much smaller than him and had just under 200 pounds on my head just a few days back.

I always wished they would do what they did to the Mini to the Citroën DS.

I'd like to balance Minnie Driver, but not on my head.

Pretty sure I'll have no problem balancing the mini on my head that is scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

I'm not sure your wife wants you telling people her weight .

csb - I did a story on a strongman and later that year he showed up in the news again because he tried to pull a truck with his teeth and yanked all his teeth out. So it's not completely fake.

Maybe. I'm just happy the diet is working.
