Each week here on guinnessworldrecords.com, we’ll be dipping into our extensive video library to bring you a classic piece of record-breaking action.
In this week’s historic video clip, Guinness World Records superfan Guinness Rishi (formerly Har Parkash) from India sets a new record for the Most straws stuffed in the mouth (with hands).
He managed to hold a staggering 496 drinking straws in his mouth for ten seconds while on the set of Guinness World Records - Ab India Todega in Mumbai, India, on 17 March 2011.
The determined record-breaker had all his teeth removed so that he could fit more straws in his mouth.
Guinness Rishi also holds a record for the Most flags tattooed on the body, getting 366 between July 2009 and July 2011.
The record for the Most straws stuffed in the mouth (hands off) is 400 and was achieved by Simon Elmore (UK), who held them there for 10 seconds at the Mark 'n' Simon Show, Sollhuben, Bavaria, Germany, on 6 August 2009.
