CNN took a break from obsessing over Hillary Clinton today to talk about something of vast importance: a skinny, six-year-old Indian boy who roller skates under parked cars. No. I am not making this up.
Little Aniket, who looks like a flying squirrel with an eating disorder, is hoping to break his own world record by "limbo skating" under 100 parked cars. Last March he took home the unofficial world record by skating under 57 cars in 45 seconds; now he's ready to up the anti.
I know what you're thinking. And yes, "holy shit" is a valid response to that picture. The best part of the story, however, is when one of the CNN anchors breaks into the report midway and admits, seeming truly upset, "that is weird... I'm sorry."
When asked why 100 cars, Aniket said, "I want a record no one can beat for a long time." Well, your record is safe with me. I don't think I could limbo skate under an overpass.
You can watch the video here. You won't regret it.
