However, the latest of such attempts is a young man
Stuntman Yang Dong not only drags trucks using only his teeth - he walks barefoot on hundreds of shards of broken GLASS as he does so.
The 20-year-old has been performing the toe-curling and foot-ripping task for 10 years now and is so comfortable he can drag a three-tonne truck laden with nine people with ease.
As we said using tooth power is relatively common - only last year a man known only as Montystar dragged a three-tonne truck too, but no broken glass was involved on that occasion.
