Paul “The Burper King” Hunn (UK) unleashed a burp of 109.9 dB at Butlins in Bognor Regis, UK in 2009 and has held the Guinness World Records title for the Loudest burp ever since.
To put that into perspective, Hunn’s burp is louder than a large orchestra.
Guinness World Records recently caught up with Paul to chat to him about his extraordinary talent and film him demonstrating it in London, much to the amazement of passers-by.
Paul practises his strange talent by drinking copious amounts of fizzy drinks and allowing the gas to build up in his stomach.
However, The Burper King has a new challenger in the form of Aussie Nev Sharp, who said: “I’m coming for you Paul.”
Paul replied: “I’ve held my record now for nearly 16 years. Many challengers have come and gone and I am not going to give up my record lightly… Let’s get this battle of the burping Ashes on.”
Watch this space to find out if Sharp’s burp is loud enough to take the title to Australia.
