Every week on our YouTube channel we showcase the often wacky world of record breaking that features on Japanese TV shows.

Our clip this week comes from the programme Bikkuri Chojin 100 Special #3 (Fuji TV) and sees the infamous Japanese competitive eater Takeru Kobayash attempt the record for the most meatballs eaten in one minute.

Kobayashi performed the feat at Fulton Street Landing in Brooklyn, New York, and consumed IKEA meatballs.
