Man makes living stacking inanimate objects on his head
There are lots of ways to make a living in this world.

EVERGREEN PARK, Ill. (WLS) -- There are lots of ways to make a living in this world.

But Jamie Keeton of Evergreen Park has come up with something entirely new.

Keeton just sticks cans to the top of his bald head. Empty cans, full cans, bottles of vodka... you name it.

"It just sticks to me," Keeton said. "My whole body... They don't really know (why)."

One doctor told him it's because of his abnormally high body temperature. He is always at 100 degrees. And that, somehow, turns his skin into a total body suction cup. At least that's what it seems like.

"Twenty three years ago, I shaved my head for the first time. And I was at a ball game. I was trying to cool my head down because it was a hot day. And all of a sudden they hit a home run," Keeton said. "I went up to grab it... I missed it, and then said, 'Where's my drink?' Everybody was laughing... The drink was stuck to the back of my head. The drink was pouring out of it."

He has now parlayed this unusual ability into a bit of worldwide fame. Just last week in China, he set a record for being the greatest canhead of all time, and he will soon be in the Guinness Book of World Records. He and his suction-cup head have met the famous, too. And suddenly the money is rolling in.

"Actually promote people's companies all the time. Different companies just to wear their name on my cans or on a shirt," he said.

Canhead Keeton says he can make up to $1,000 a day and even $8,000 for a weekend of renting out his head.

He doesn't just latch onto cans and bottles.

"I can stick almost anything. Let me try your iPhone. Look, I'm hands free," Keeton jokes.
