Watch this 6'8" man board a plane and perfectly capture the struggle of being tall

This one’s for you, tall people.

BRIAN SHAW IS a big guy.

6 foot 8 inches and 435 lbs to be precise.

As you might expect, getting around can pose some difficulties for a man of Brian’s stature. To illustrate this, Shaw brought a camera on board a recent plane journey to demonstrate how getting around planes isn’t exactly a walk in the park for tall people.

The video captures Shaw boarding the plane, walking down the cramped aisle and trying to get into his seat.

Spoiler: it might make you claustrophobic.


Eh, look at this enormous 99 from Co. Meath >

Last night’s Moone Boy finale had Ireland in tears >
