Watch as this flautist takes his performance to the next level by hanging upside down... from a tree.

When it comes to street performers, you might think you’ve seen it all. But now, one man in Brooklyn, New York has re-defined the art of busking.

Last week a passer-by captured video footage of the man, hanging upside down playing the flute. He appears to be suspended from a tree using only ropes as he combines an acrobatic display with equally impressive flute playing.

The passer-by said: “This man was performing this ‘routine’ while listening to headphones on a busy street in Brooklyn.”

He appeared to be wearing the headphones to provide musical accompaniment for his playing.

Bravo, upside down flute man – we’re very impressed.
