What do you do when you’re waiting for a flight at an airport?
For most of us the answer is something fairly standard, along the lines of: read a book, go for a coffee or perhaps do a bit of duty-free shopping if you happen to be heading overseas.
Recently, however, travellers waiting around at Philadelphia airport were able to kill some time in a far more entertaining manner, thanks to a fellow traveller doing something that you’d never expect in an airport.
A limbo dance.
That’s right, in the middle of a departure lounge, with a few fellow travellers watching on – and cheering in amazement and disbelief (we assume that’s how they felt; it’s certainly how we felt!) – she did the limbo under a row of chairs.
Her husband made a video and posted it online, where it promptly when viral and so far has had more than 194,000 views on YouTube.
In the comments section one person wrote: “I do this when I gotta work on cars.”
Another joked: “She must be great under bed.”
But don’t try this at home, folks (or the next time you’re catching a flight) – it’s strictly for professionals. According to India Today, the airport acrobat is Shemika Charles, an internationally recognised limbo dancer from New York. She holds the Guinness World Record for lowest female limbo, which she won in 2010 by passing under a bar that was only 21.59cm off the ground. She also appeared on seasons six and 12 of America’s Got Talent.
