Watch This Strongman Pull A 9.5-Ton Truck Using Only His Hair

The first four attempts failed because his hair was "too shiny."

Ever do something that makes you feel like pulling out your hair?

Not like what Manjit Singh did on Monday. The 66-year-old strongman pulled a 9.5-ton truck 50 feet by his hair, SWNS reports.

It's actually the second time Singh, of Leicester, UK, has attempted the feat. Back in 2009 when he pulled an 8.5-ton truck by his hair.

But it almost didn't happen. Singh's first four attempts failed because his hair was "too shiny." after he washed it.

"I washed it this morning," he told SWNS. "It kept slipping three or four times, but we did it."

Amazingly, Singh's hair-raising stunt did not set a world record.

The record for heaviest vehicle pulled by hair was set in January by China's He Yi Qun, who dragged 10.55 tons the required distance of 50 feet.

Qun not only pulled a 9.7-ton truck, but also nine passengers, the driver and a cameraman.

Don't feel bad for Singh though. He already owns Guinness World Records for farthest distance to pull a single decker bus by the ears, as well as heaviest weight lifted by an eye socket and heaviest weight lifted by both eye sockets.

"The hardest record was pulling with my ears, though," he told SWNS.
