A comedian dressed as Superman was unexpectedly hit by a bus after he tried, and failed, to show off his strength by halting the moving vehicle with his hand.

Luiz Ribeiro de Andrade, who goes by the name ‘Superman’, was hit by a bus in the Brazilian municipality of Barra dos Coqueiros when his stunt went wrong on May 30.

The presenter, 35, was dressed head-to-toe in a classic red and blue Superman outfit as he filmed himself trying to prove his super-strength by mimicking halting a bus with his hand.

Footage shows the man of steel confidently standing in the middle of the road and holding a microphone as a bus comes speeding straight towards him.

But the video shows things quickly taking a turn for the worse as the wanna-be Superman is hit by the bus, before stumbling forward in surprise. 

Despite his stunt epically failing, Luiz is seen calmly walking down the road afterwards, appearing to be unscathed following the collision.

In the clip, he joked: ‘Now I’ve seen I really am made of steel’.

In an interview given to F5 News the next day, Luiz said he miscalculated his distance and ended up being hit by the bus, rather than simply halting it with his hand.

He also said that the ‘hand of God’ had saved him from getting more seriously injured in his stunt, adding that he luckily didn’t feel ‘anything’ with the ‘knock’.

He added that the accident was completely his fault and that there was no problem with the bus’ brakes, as he had suggested in his video.

He told F5 News: ‘I take responsibility for everything. I went to the bus company so that the driver would not be penalised. 

‘There was no problem with the brakes. He did what he could and I acted wrong. 

‘It’s a stunt I always do, but this time it almost turned into an accident, and it wasn’t serious because the hand of God was there.

‘I didn’t feel anything with the knock. I was hit through my own fault and a miracle of God took place there. God acted at that time and protected me.’

The transport company, Setransp, issued a statement emphasising ‘the importance of attention to traffic (and) ensuring all necessary care’.
