Ninja Warrior"s Nullarbor Instagram stunt "just plain stupid"
A PERTH contestant on the upcoming ‘Ninja Warrior’ television series might be used to daring and exhilarating challenges, but none like standing out of the sunroof of a car while driving on the Nullarbor.
Bronson Foxx Norrish posted the video to his Instagram on Friday as part of an update in his self-proclaimed record attempt to drive from Melbourne to Perth in an electric car.
The short video shows Norrish standing on the seat of his car with his shirt off looking at the camera as drives along Eyre Highway.
When he aims the camera down, a device can be seen fastened to the steering wheel while Norrish, who is almost entirely on the outside through the sunroof of his car says: ‘no hands’.
Police Minister Michelle Roberts described the stunt as “just plain stupid”.
“The only thing he is likely to break is his neck,” she said.
Despite the post having only been up for a matter of hours, Instagram users and presumably friends of the WA man have condemned the reckless act.
“OMFG Bronson get the f--- in the car,” wrote one person.
“You know you have to get to Perth to succeed in said #recordattempt,” said another.
As if filming yourself while standing out of a car wasn’t enough, the athlete suggests to viewers in other video updates that he’s driving fatigued too.
“I’ve got three more days of no sleep,” Norrish says while leaving Adelaide.
In a more recent update he says he’s “working on four hours sleep over the past 48 hours.”Source: https://www.perthnow.com.au/entertainment/tv/ninja-warriors-nullarbor-instagram-stunt-just-plain-stupid-ng-b88889123z
