"Mr. Dingle, the Strong" is an episode of the The Twilight Zone.

From the CBS Video Library cover:

"Vacuum-cleaner salesman Luther Dingle is a timid failure who finds life more than he can cope with—particularly a bar-room bully hot to find a scapegoat for his perennial losing streak. But Dingle hasn't counted on the two-headed unseen Martian looking for a subject on which to try a strength-enhancing experiment. Before he knows what hit him, Dingle has the strength of 300 men—he can crush alarm clocks, lift statues and tear boulders in two. "Mr. Dingle, The Strong" is an overnight sensation...but the experiment isn't over yet."[1]
