The strongest man in the world has bought a tank. He is using it to buy chicken at KFC

Edie Hall He managed to become the strongest man in the world, World’s Strongest Man, obtaining this title in 2017. But beyond being a weightlifting athlete and boxing fighter, this Briton has gone viral in recent times thanks to his new acquisition about ” wheels”: a tank.

It is actually an armored reconnaissance fighting vehicle (AFV). That is to say that it can circulate on the street being, in fact, registered.

And good old Hall is showing on his Youtube channel, how this beast performs in everyday life as if it were a car: from going to the gas station, to washing it, including putting it in the drive-thru of fast food establishments.

Almost 1,200 euros for refueling

The first challenge that Hall, aka The Beast, posed to himself, according to his armored car, was to go to a gas station to see how much the joke of fill your deposit with current prices: “I’m sure it’s going to come out of my face.” But first the introductions.

His AFV, a model belonging to the British Army, measures 4.8 m long, 2.2 m wide and 2.1 m high. Its weight is set at eight tons. Hall details that he is aware of the insurance and remembers that it is completely legal to circulate with it. Although being registered as a classic, for example, he does not have to pass the ITV.

When he bought it, the dealer told him it had a fuel tank of about 100 liters, but Hall reckons it must have been around 500 liters. And she was right.

This was verified after going to two gas stations. And incidentally having to make several trips to the box in one of them, because he discovered that the pumps have a limit of 100 liters for each refueling.

Two gas stations and several refuelings later, he got the magic number of completely filling his tank: £1,030which at the current exchange rate is about 1,180 euros.

After this wonderful invoice(s), The Beast, indicated that he was going to use it fairly, although he obviously had it in mind, of course: “For YouTube videos, exhibitions and little else,” he explains on camera.

Three tests passed: two drive-thru and a complete wash

After this first video, Hall asked his followers to propose straight. At the moment it has three and all with a common denominator: do not get out of the tank while doing them.

Thus, it has passed two drive-thru: one of a McDonalds and one of a KFC, the latter being the most recent. In both he has faced the narrow order lane, although the truth is that the two chosen are quite wide. Be that as it may, turning with the tracks and the more than 2 meters wide of the tank has its crumb.

To this is added a second stumbling block: the tank has the driving position on the left, which is a nuisance for the United Kingdom since everything is designed for seats with the driver on the right. And that includes the drive-thru. Hall has solved this by using an extendable gripper to pick up the orders. And so far he has not thrown food or drink.

The third of the challenges has been go wash your tank at a car wash. On the first attempt, they had to turn around since the maximum height of the car wash was for two-meter vehicles.

Finally, Hall went to a hand wash facility, in whose ship the tank just fit. She managed it but not without hardship: to protect herself from pressurized water and soap, he used an umbrella. It served him rather little, because he ended up soaking wet.

The service cost him 15 pounds, which was the amount set for a motorhome. “It’s about the same size, isn’t it?” He comments to the owner of the establishment that he obviously had a lot of fun with his visit.

In the end, he gave him something more for the inconvenience because they gave him the full service: they washed it, they had to remove it by hand because it did not fit in the drying area, and they polished it.

The videos, some with more than a million views and counting, are not wasted. Because in addition to being witty in itself that he dedicates himself to circulating with the tank in day-to-day tasks, Hall is quite comical. What new challenge will he surprise us with next time?
