A Guangzhou man literally ‘lowered the bar’ for metro acrobats everywhere when he tried teaching his son to use the handrails as parallel bars and fell down, bringing the handrails with him, according to Oriental Daily.
The fiasco was set in motion when his son sought advice from his father on how to do tricks using the handrails. The father obliged, grabbing a handrail and attempting to swing himself up onto it.
However, the bar suddenly became loose when he jumped, causing him to fall to the subway floor with the handrail in hand.
Passengers gawked at him while he embarrassedly stood up and placed the handrail on the side of the metro before returning to his seat. Needless to say, he lost more face than’s on an Easter Island statue.
