London mayor Boris Johnson gets stuck on zipline (Video)

Back on Wednesday, London mayor Boris Johnson had an issue with a stunt he's trying to do in honor of the 2012 London Olympics.

Johnson had planned to ride a zipline down to a cheering crowd of supporters in Victoria Park while he held two Great Britain flags.

The stunt caught a snag however when the zipline he was traveling on got stuck and provided us with London's first airborne mayor who was nearly 148 feet from the ground:

Johnson would eventually get down and showed some humor while he was stuck on the zipline:
"Can you get me a rope? Get me a rope, okay?" he was heard shouting good-humoredly in the video as reported by ITV News.

"Anyway it was wonderful, I thoroughly recommend it," he told ITV.
