London is hosting the 2012 Summer Olympics, so London Mayor Boris Johnson is riding high … literally. On Wednesday, the eccentric public official decided to celebrate and ride a zip line in Victoria park in order to promote the summer games.  There was just one small complication -  he got stuck.

Johnson managed to cover most of the zip line while wearing a blue helmet and waving two small British flags. But near the end, he stalled out and simply hung there suspended in the air.

“Can you get me a rope?” he deadpanned, while onlookers laughed.
