In celebration of the 2012 London Olympics, an artist has turned a double-decker bus to mimic an athlete doing some push-ups.

Reports say that the 1957 double-deck bus was purchased from an owner located in the Netherlands. The Czech artist installed two big arms, an electric engine, and a good amount of suspension tools and wiring. The bus is now called the London Booster.

The new arm and other mechanics help the six-ton ride move its arms and make it push against the ground. The motion of the arms raises the body of the vehicle in several angles. The bus even groans and plays videos on its windows that have been converted to digital displays.

The artist behind this very creative tribute is David Cerny. He said the push-up is a very common exercise for almost all athletes.
