Tourist challenges Gaston to a push-up contest at Disney World: What happens next?

How does the song go? "No one's slick as Gaston, no one's quick as Gaston, no one's neck's as incredibly thick as Gaston's" - and, it seems, no one's as good at push-ups as Gaston, as this tourist found out to his embarrassment.

The Disney World tourist, called Blake Pratt, approaches Beauty and the Beast character Gaston and says: "Do you think you're pretty strong? I think I'm stronger than you."

Gaston replies: "No, I'm the strongest man around. No one's stronger than me. What's the challenge?"

Blake says: "A push-up contest."

The pair get on the floor and get ready to show off their push-up prowess, when Gaston zips through his with ease, while the tourist struggles in comparison.

At one point Gaston jokes: "He looks like he's struggling, perhaps he needs a hand," and launches into one-armed press-ups with the other hand resting nonchalantly on his hip.

Blake uploaded the footage to YouTube on 2 January, and it's since gone viral. He wrote: "If you've ever wondered what would happen if you challenged Gaston to a push-up contest."



He then added: "So...this got infinitely more attention than I thought it would. We were just having fun and I thought a person or two might get a chuckle out of it.

"When my brother and I go to the Disney parks (which we love), one of our goals every time we enter is to make someone's day, even if it's just one person. Hopefully we've been able to do that on a little larger scale; and, hopefully again, in a way of which Walt would be proud."

One user commented: "I love this video. It shows that the employees at this park not only act like their characters but can back up their claims that it really is almost like the movies. Props to this employee who can do this!"

Well, he's definitely got "biceps to spare". My, what a guy, Gaston!
