Woman on Stilts Surprises Shoppers in Australian Supermarket

A stunt woman in Western Australia walked around a supermarket on stilts, much to the surprise and entertainment of shoppers in the Perth suburb of Success.

Footage of Demi Skinner shows her walking through the aisles of a Woolworths as a group of children look on and giggle. Skinner told Storyful the video was taken in January 2021 but that she posted it for the first time on TikTok on Monday, January 3, 2022.

According to News.com.au, the video has received some backlash, with some viewers questioning the stunt’s safety. “That’s so odd and unnecessary to do in a shop,” wrote a TikTok user.

Skinner told Storyful that the stunt was safe and nobody had been put at risk. “I also have performers insurance and public liability cover for stilt walking and was approved by the shopping centre to be there,” said Skinner.

“Kids and general public who I have met while on stilts usually love seeing me and want high fives and pictures.” Credit: Demi Skinner via Storyful
