Watch Florida drag artist drop from atop bus in her act

Elishaly D’Witshes doesn’t mind taking public transit, in fact, she incorporates in into her drag act.

On June 23, this athletic drag queen was performing at Miami’s Palace Bar, and in the middle of her act climbed aboard a double-decker bus parked just outside the patio and did the splits after hanging from the top.

Her audience and the world immediately went into a frenzy after watching her acrobatics; the video has gone viral.

“I’ve jumped off double-decker buses before,” D’Witshes told HuffPost. “In fact, the drivers already know me and honk their horns and open the doors to the bus so I can jump in.”

The self-proclaimed "transformista" is well-known throughout Miami and only shows fear after watching herself perform the stunt. But she’s never been hurt.

“I guess my body is already used to it,” she laughs.

D’Witshes is appreciative of all the accolades her performance has generated and never thought she would be in the national spotlight.

“I am beyond grateful and appreciate all the love and attention this has brought to my life,” she said. “I never believed this video would go viral. It has caused chaos ― people tell me I’m crazy for doing that (and sometimes I believe it myself).”

Reigning Miss Florida Universo Latina USA 2017, D’Witshes has been doing drag for eight years.

Originally from Puerto Rico, the amateur gymnast-in-drag hopes to win the title of Miss Universo Latina USA 2017.
