It's difficult to decide what's more amazing about this video clip from The Ellen DeGeneres Show: Ahmed Valentino Kerigo's display of physical strength or the bonkers reaction he and his mother have to being invited to Los Angeles to appear live on the popular talk programme.
Kerigo caught the DeGeneres's attention with a video showing him doing “flying pushups” in which the Oslo man set a world record by performing the feat at a height of 1.36 metres. 
 
The talk show host was understandably impressed but when she found out that his mother, Muni, was a big fan of the show, DeGeneres decided she would surprise them live on air. 
 
The two thought they were fielding a Skype call from one of the show's producer but instead got the shock of a lifetime when the host herself popped up on the screen. 
 
See their wild reaction here:
 
 
The Kerigos will be flown to Burbank, California to appear on the Ellen Show on person, where Ahmed will show off his pushup skills.
 
Ahmed told DeGeneres that he got into street fitness after seeing a video on YouTube. Below you can see his world record in the flying pushup, which he told VG he hopes to top when he goes to California.
