Historical Context

Roger the Kangaroo was famous for his ripped physique and physical prowess. Rescued as a small joey after his mother was run over by a car near Alice Springs, Australia. A local man Chris Barnes then built a sanctuary for him and a few of his wives. An online clip of Roger crushing a tin bucket like a paper cup went viral in 2015 and brought him worldwide fame.
