On a television talent show called "Amazing Chinese," 81-year-old Wang Xiaobei wowed an audience by pulling a car carrying three of her loved ones with her teeth. The car's passengers were her grandson and his wife, as well as a personal friend, and Xiaobei pulled the car about two meters. After a little under 40 seconds of pulling, spectators erupted in boisterous applause. 

Xiaobei explained that her age isn't slowing her down. She stated, "I have a healthy body and healthy mind and I don't think there's any difference between how I feel now and how I felt when I was younger."

A viewer in the audience said, "It was amazing to watch. I thought her teeth would fly out, but they didn't and she even seemed to be doing a little dance as the crowd clapped."

The car weighed approximately one ton without the passengers in it. If we estimate that the weight of the three passengers was a collective 500 pounds, Xiaobei pulled quite a haul with her chompers. The challenge for Xiaobei now? Impressing the judges on a second occasion. After her awesome stunt, she was invited to return to the show for round two of "Amazing Chinese."

Not a lone feat 
While Xiaobei's feat is truly remarkable, she's not alone in this uncanny ability. At age 91, Mike Greenstein, also known as Mighty Atom Jr., pulls cars with his teeth regularly. The veteran strongman followed in his father's footsteps, leading to his nickname. Greenstein's father also taught him to bend iron bars over his nose and coins with his teeth.

Greenstein uses a leather pad attached to a rope or chain to pull the vehicles, according to The New York Times. Whereas many skeptics write off such feats that are done on a flat surface, a reporter for The Times witnessed Greenstein pull a mail truck up a slight grade. He also pulled his Buick across a parking lot and accidentally ran it into another vehicle.

Greenstein swears by advice from his father, and regimentally brushes his mouth with a mix of kosher salt and water. While this may have worked for the strongman for years, nothing replaces regularly brushing and flossing your teeth, as well as rinsing with mouthwash. Keep in mind that trying such activities at home will likely result in damaged teeth or other injuries.
