The strongest man in the world takes on Krazy Glue

NEW YORK - On December 5, the World's Strongest Man, Hafthor Bjornsson, also known as The Mountain on HBO's Game of Thrones, will take on a scary challenger: Krazy Glue.
The challenge – Man vs. Glue – will consist of large, "krazy" objects like giant 70-gallon fish tanks filled with electric eels, a motorcycle, or hundreds of cans of Thanksgiving gravy - all attached to a lifting bar using only Krazy Glue. 
Fans decided the objects Bjornsson would lift under #ManVsGlue on social media, as long as each object weighed at least 500 pounds and could be suspended from a barbell using only Krazy Glue.
"I never back down from a challenge and when I learned that a single drop of Krazy Glue was strong enough to hold up to 1,000 pounds, I knew I had to put the product's strength to the test for myself," said Bjornsson. "I'm excited to see the creative submissions from fans, and look forward to putting the product's strength to the test."
The event will be live-streamed in real time December 5.
