You might know Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane from HBO’s Game of Thrones, the guy who once crushed a man’s skull and made it explode with his own two hands. You might also know him as Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson, the 6-foot-9 behemoth from Iceland, widely considered one of the strongest men in the world. Earlier this year, Björnsson broke a 1,000-year-old weightlifting record, carrying a monster 1,320-pound log for five steps.

In a recent event for Iceland’s Strongest Man Competition, Björnsson made the Atlas Stone look relatively easy, moving all five in less than 20 seconds. Then, he morphed into Hulk Hogan and ripped his shirt off, scaring the bejesus out of everyone in attendance.
