Ashrita Furman is the greatest record breaker of all time. Since 1979, he has set a whopping 484 official Guinness World Records and currently holds 167. As a kid Furman had a huge fascination with the Guinness Book of Records, for him the book was like a bible. But being a non-athlete, he never figured he could actually hold a world record himself.
From catching the most Hard Boiled Eggs in the mouth in one minute, Most Apples Sliced in Mid-Air with a Samurai Sword, Longest Distance Bicycling Underwater to Banana slicing with a sword on a slackline in one minute, Furman definitely holds some weird records. In the The Record Breaker, we follow Furman as he trains to set a new new record: climbing Machu Picchu on stilts. During the film we also get to see a demonstration of Furman balancing a lawn mower on his chin, walking around in the world’s heaviest shoes and twirling the world’s largest hula hoop around his waist.
