Awesome Temporary Eiffel Tower Modification

Read more info here - a temporary, carbon Kevlar observation deck was attached to the tower's top in March this year, to celebrate its 120th birthday.

The weird arm-flapping guy on the third animated gif is Andre van Duin, a dutch commedian. This clip is from very early in his carreer. I think he is like 60 jears old now, while in the clip he must be in his early 20's.
