Being a drag queen is about more than just looking pretty. A good queen is witty, fast on her feet, and knows how to keep a crowd entertained. And as queen Elishaly D’witshes proves, she should also be comfortable experimenting with some new tricks.

D’witshes was entertaining patrons at Miami’s Palace Bar on Friday when she noticed a double-decker tour bus parked out front. She quickly hopped onto the bus, made her way to the top floor, jumped over the guardrail—and hung from the bus before leaping off into a split.

Once D’witshes landed on the floor below, she was greeted with roaring applause. After all, a split like that takes quite a bit of skill.

The Palace Bar is one of Miami’s most iconic gay bars, known for its impressive drag queen performances. But D’witshes’s performance is bittersweet. The 30-year-old bar will be closing down and relocating next month.
