VIDEO: Super7 gives advice to pupils during his '10,000 Shukrans' mission
Caped crusader Super7 bragged that backflipping over the Burj Khalifa was "easy" as he went back to school for an afternoon.
The hero spoke to 7DAYS in a video interview about his capers during a visit to Emirates International School in Dubai on Monday.
Grade five students at the school spent an afternoon discussing their passions with representatives from different companies, including 7DAYS’ Duncan Hare, who were invited into classrooms to chat to youngsters about their careers.
Super7 told the captivated kids: “Be good, study hard - and you can become your own superheroes.”
Super7 has been an instant hit since landing in Dubai and Abu Dhabi on his mission to help 7DAYS celebrate its 10th birthday by handing out 10,000 Shukrans to readers.
Last week he revealed he acrobatically arrived in Dubai by leaping over the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa - something even Hollywood hero Tom Cruise couldn’t achieve in ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’. Yesterday he said: “All I did was take two steps and flipped. I admit I did showboat a little bit. I did a double back flip over the Burj Khalifa and landed safely.”
But with no known video proof of his daredevil dive, Super7 was pushed as to whether his boasts actually occurred.
To which the caped crusader countered: “I stand for truth, justice - and the 7DAYS way.”
Pupil Yasmeen Sabunchi, nine, said she loved the caped crusader’s chat and costume, but added: “I don’t think all of his muscles are real.”
Super7 handed out Shukrans - a special 7DAYS currency that bags readers free gifts - to students as well as stickers. Super7 also visited Costa Coffee in Downtown Dubai, the Dolphinarium and Starcom and OMD in Dubai Media City today.
