Kenny Leverich Dresses Up as an Old Dude and Shocks People at Muscle Beach

July 07, 2016

This has to be the best video we’ve ever posted on this website… Huge props to Kenny Leverich and all the people behind this brilliant masterpiece! CLICK PLAY!

 

From The Thrillist:

One of life’s most valuable lessons is, “never take your elders for granted.” They have too much wisdom to pass down, and thanks to the past decades’ improvements in health and well-being, many of them can still put an old-fashioned beat-down on you too.

To drive this point home to ludicrous degrees, we tapped…a young guy, professionally made up to look like an 80-year-old, to freak the hell out of the bodybuilders at Muscle Beach — the legendary open-air gym in Venice, CA where Schwarzenegger used to train.

Our double age-ent: Kenneth Leverich, a former Junior Olympic weightlifter and top SoCal Crossfit competitor who does even lift, bro — 535lbs dead, precisely. We tapped Hollywood special effects guru Dan Gilbert to subject Leverich to 4 hours of prosthetics and make up. Then we made him wear a cardigan.

Watch as he puts Muscle Beach regulars to shame with feats of strength and other insane tricks, all in front of an ever-growing, ever-more-amazed crowd.
