A tank shows up in a car wash…

Eddie Hall & his tankEddie Hall

Even tanks need to be washed sometimes. Eddie Hall knows, because this famous professional powerman from the United Kingdom owns a tank. And he decided to take up on the challenge his fans posed.

Eddie “The Beast” Hall is mostly known for his strength. But the powerful Brit also likes a good laugh, so he decided to take his recently acquired Armored Fighting Vehicle (AFV) to a car wash. The tank was built in the 60s for the British Army and can be driven legally on the road, as long as it doesn’t exceed 32 miles an hour.

So far, he took his armored vehicle to McDonald’s, filled it up at a gas station (which proved hugely expensive) and requested an Uber-license. All this can be seen on his successful YouTube channel.

The Beast

For his latest video, Mr. Hall was challenged by his fans to take the heavy tank, which he named The Beast, to a car wash. Usually, army vehicles – especially armored and armed ones – don’t simply pay regular visits to the street corner car wash. So it goes without saying that these facilities can’t accommodate the cleaning of camouflaged heavyweights.

Mr. Hall found a suited car wash in his neighborhood where they were willing to give it a try. Sadly, it’s not a tunnel nor a roll over.  The tank ends up in in a simple hand car wash, one that proved big enough to give The Beast a decent shower. Since a regular driver doesn’t leave his car during a car wash, the owner of the tank proceeded in the same manner.
Well, almost.
Since Mr. Hall was quite big and the tank relatively small, he couldn’t close the hatch. Simply because he does not fit entirely inside the driver position in this AFV. His head sticks above the front armor. An umbrella came to the rescue.

We can’t wait for the upcoming Beast-video’s. And we are still hoping for a future tunnel wash visit.
