This extraordinary footage shows a man ambitiously trying to move a fixed concrete boulder outside a Romford bar – for 17 minutes.

About 15 minutes into his effort, the wannabe strongman attempts to wave a car back into a parking space on The Brickyard car park, South Street, despite the fact it’s parked and nobody is in it.

The video, believed to be filmed from the offices of Seetec in Oldchurch Road, then shows him falling over the boulder before eventually giving up.

YouTube user JWickington uploaded the clip on Thursday, calling it “Drunk guy in Romford, trying to move a concrete Boulder. Falls over in the end. Funny”.
