From the “City of Angels” to the great Down Under, where we later in the week met up with our brand new host and record holder - Australia's very own Space Cowboy! Chayne, “The Space Cowboy” Hultgren holds an outstanding 44 records, all surrounding death-defying feats. His titles include Most swords swallowed simultaneously by a male, Heaviest weight pulled with the eye sockets, Highest throw and catch of a chainsaw whilst juggling, and Most apples held in the mouth and cut by chainsaw in one minute – self (blindfolded). Essentially, all the records that make for a superb Facebook Live! Check out this broadcast for an in-depth look to one of our most successful title holders. If you want to view his wall of certificates, and learn more about how he got started, this is the video for you.
Staying in Australia, the Space Cowboy took us to meet record holder Didga, one of the stars of the Guinness World Records 2017 edition book. Taught by her owner Robert, Didga holds the record for Most tricks in one minute (cat). In our catch up with the smart feline, we also meet her pal Boomer, who is also owned by Robert. Boomer has his own party trick, with his ability to skateboard, a talent he show's off towards the end of the broadcast with an attempt to skate through a tunnel of people. You don’t want to miss this adorable exploit!
Wednesday, saw the The Space Cowboy attempt another thrilling record for Most torches lit with the body in one minute. Adding to the challenge, Chayne decided to light each torch by conducting electricity through his body! Using a bug zapper, a high voltage transformer, and his bare hands he walked viewers through his methods for the high-risk and daring attempt. It doesn’t stop there: the Space Cowboy electrified swords in order to show everyone how to swallow charged blades! While we warn audience members not to try this at home, we guarantee it’s one of the hottest acts you’ll ever see!
Later on in the week we moved back to the USA, where we met up with Manhattan (USA) mixologist Sheldon Wiley, who holds two incredible bartending records for Most cocktails made in one minute at 18, as well as Most cocktails made in one hour at a remarkable 1,905! Sheldon re-attempts the one minute records so viewers can see what it takes to be a barman record holder. With twists, turns, swings, spray guns, and five pound bottles, the cocktail records slowly become an intense workout for any participant who’s skilled enough to try it. To watch the awesome bartender in action, and see if he beats his previous score, click below.
We then switched things up a bit and returned back to Australia, where the Space Cowboy caught up with renowned Australian chef Brad Jolly, who also happens to be the record holder for Most pancake tosses in one minute. Pancake making is a very difficult skill to possess, and flipping them precisely within the boundaries of the pan is certainly harder. But Brad can achieve an amazing 130 flips- and luckily shows fans who tuned in how to do the same.
Things got topsy-turvey as the next broadcast opened with the Space Cowboy balanced on a very high (and risky-looking) unicycle. There in his home of Australia, he attempted two more record titles for Hat catching - greatest distance caught and Hat catching - greatest distance caught (self-thrown). In an elaborate effort to throw the hat in mid-air and run wildly to catch it on his head, we’ll see if the mighty cowboy adds another two titles to his collection of titles.
The week came to a close as the Space Cowboy showed a live free-diving lesson with an expert in the field; a skill he is trying to learn in order to properly prepare for his next great, and apparently wet, record attempt. Though the title of the upcoming record is not revealed until he end of the film, the Space Cowboy gets firsthand experience on navigating the water and some insight into how to hold your breath for long periods of time.
