Meet Britain’s most bizarre street performer… who spends hours upside down with his head in a BUCKET

Britain’s most bizarre street performer really is beyond the pail – spending hours upside down with his head in a BUCKET.

The mystery artist hoists his legs in the air, puts his hands by his sides and lowers himself in – remaining bolt upright for several hours.

He cannot see or talk properly because his head is wrapped in a blanket and jammed into the metal bucket.

A sign next to the bizarre act describes him as ‘a professional head stand master’.

Photographer Meg Johnson captured the weird stunt as she strolled through Plymouth, Devon, on Sunday.

Meg, 22, said: “When I was taking pictures he said something like ‘take as many pictures as you like’, but I could barely hear him.

“It was one of the strangest things I’ve ever seen. There were plenty of people around him – it was really impressive.”

The world record for the longest headstand is three days, nine hours and 25 minutes and 35 seconds.

    Why haven’t you posted his name? Or his act? And did you secure rights (from him) for this photo? I’m assuming not, seeing as his sign was blurred…
