Waldo Corthes
Waldo Corthes, a German Variety entertainer, is shown here allowing a Volkswagen to run over his pillow-covered head. Many strongmen have been “run over” by a car but this one is a first. Corthes didn’t even blink and apparently suffered no ill effect. This feat took place in Wiesbaden, Germany on July 8, 1955 and got picked up by the associated press so a feature on it ran in newspapers all over the country.
