'F*** my life': 360kg strongmen caught in hilarious plane seat fail

Renowned strongmen Eddie Hall and Brian Shaw have been snapped in what could be the funniest plane seat fail ever.

Hall and Shaw were travelling from London to Scotland recently when according to Hall, ‘the check-in ladies’ decided to put them next to each other.

That was probably a mistake.

“The check-in ladies sat me and @shawstrength right next to each other on the plane from London to Scotland and no-one on the plane would swap seats…. Would you swap seats with one of us???” he posted on Instagram, alongside the hashtag ‘F*** my life’.

The post was accompanied by a hilarious pic of the two jammed in next to each other, with both men looking rather unimpressed.

Hall, nicknamed “The Beast”, was crowned World’s Strongest Man in 2017, while Shaw has won the same award four times.


Hall is 164kg and 1.9m tall, but is dwarfed by the 200kg, 2.03m Shaw.


Unfortunately it appears as though they were forced to ride it out next to each other.

However some social media followers did say they would have loved to sit next to their heroes.

“Absolutely. Just to hang with you guys would be awesome,” one wrote.

“I’d love to sit next to you on a plane Eddie, and I know from your book that your love of planes and queues at the airport is not high in your list, but honestly I’d think you’d prob punch me in the face, as I would be talking your head off!” another said.
