Hello, and welcome to Nairn, in the north of Scotland.
I've come here today to meet some of the amazing performers
of the astonishing circus, and in particular,
one of those performers who's got record-breaking on his mind.
Oh, get me out of here!
This circus is full of some pretty colourful characters.
In charge is Norman Barrett,
who holds the world record for being the longest serving ringmaster.
Then, there's the incredible aerial acrobats,
the bonkers motorcycle stunt team and their globe of death,
and, of course, the circus isn't the circus without clowns.
And last, but not least, this towering brute of a man,
This huge Ukrainian spends his life doing dangerous
and unwise things like this...
But, today, he's going to be attempting the record
for the greatest combined weight juggled.
You can use anything you like,
but Hercules has gone
for a particularly 'tyring' juggling option.
Let's meet him...
-Now, get down from there. This is ridiculous.
RUBBER DUCK SQUEAKS
-Why did you become a strongman?
-My father was a strongman.
Wow, so, it's in your blood, it's in your genes.
In terms of the record, are you feeling confident?
I feel yes, I can do it.
OK, so, Hercules has gone off to prepare for his challenge.
Will he do it? We'll find out soon.
Now, I'm joined by two clowns who are preparing
for a classic slapstick routine.
Basically, what happens is,
they look to size me up to throw a cream pie in my face.
But, at the last possible moment, they, of course, go for each other.
Never, ever trust clowns!
Here are the rules...
All three tyres must be the same weight.
He must use a standard juggling technique,
so...right, left, right, left.
And, he must go for at least 30 seconds to get the record.
OK, it's time to get juggling!
And, not only that, but the whole circus has turned out
to support Hercules. Guys, is he going to do it?
I think that was a 'yes'.
-Hercules, are you ready?
-I am ready.
-Excellent, let's do this.
Hercules starts by balancing one tyre on his head. And he's off!
Each tyre weighs a massive nine kilos.
That's like juggling three toddlers, though that would be a bad idea.
He needs height in each throw and he's hitting a rhythm, that's vital!
He's getting closer.
Can he keep juggling this huge weight for the full 30 seconds?
It's incredible, he must be aching now!
Oh, 26 seconds in and he's dropped one.
So close for Hercules, and yet so far. Four seconds from glory.
Mere mortals might manage one attempt, but this is Hercules!
A quick rest and he is ready again.
Well, Hercules has had a five-minute breather.
I've had a bickie and a cup of tea. It's time for a second attempt.
-Hercules, you ready?
-Excellent, let's do it.
Determination versus exhaustion, now.
Composing himself, getting his tyres ready, here we go!
Look at this man mountain of muscle motoring through this attempt.
20 seconds! Each huge throw draining his energy... Five...
Oh, tyres colliding, sending one sideways, can he catch it? Oh!
A mighty effort, but did he reach that magic 30-second mark?
-Over to official adjudicator, Anna.
You were one second away.
-You can definitely do it.
You must. Everyone knows you can do it.
But, I must...little bit...rest.
He's physically exhausted, mentally exhausted,
but he's got to be on his third attempt, you can't miss it.
Can Hercules pull off this Herculean task with his final attempt?
We'll find out later. But, first...
We've sent Al to a Las Vegas diner
to meet an officially mysterious record-breaker.
He's got to try to guess what record that person holds.
Guessing records is not Al's strong point.
Last series he failed to figure out
what Chanel's mouthwatering record was.
Oh, my God!
And Kim gave him a real eyeful
when he couldn't work out her eye boggling record.
Oh, my God! I was not ready for that.
We thought we'd give him another chance, so, meet Rob Williams.
-Hey, how you doing? Good to meet you.
-Nice to meet you, too.
All right, Rob Williams, let's just get right to it.
-We've never met before. I'm excited to meet you.
But, honestly, I don't know why I'm meeting you.
Is it something to do with your tongue?
-OK. Are you particularly fast?
-Yes, I am fast.
-Are you physically fast with your legs?
-I am fast with my legs, yes.
-Right, the last question, Al!
-Can you jump really high?
-No? All right, so, I'm out of questions.
I assume that this is something you can show me?
-Yes, I can show you this, yes.
The Guinness World Record that Rob actually holds
is the fastest sandwich made with the feet! You heard correctly.
His record stands at 1:57, and though he's not going
for a record today, he's here to show Al
his sockless sandwich making skills.
I'm going to clean my feet. It's a gob of antibacterial soap.
-Got to do it, Mama would be proud.
-That's right. Cleanliness first.
-Look at that, you're getting in between the toes.
If you could teach my kids to do that with their hands, I'd be happy.
-Let's make you a baloney sandwich.
-Let's do it!
There's two slices of bread... There's one, and...two.
If you're eating right now, you might want to stop.
'Mmm, full of feety goodness.'
Wow, he even takes the rind off the sausage.
-Here, I'll give that to you.
-Thanks, I appreciate it.
-A little bit the lettuce?
-Sure, it's iceberg.
-You want a little cheese?
And, peeling the wrapper on this guy
is one of the harder things for me to do.
If you're thinking of trying this at home, ask your mom first.
-My guess is she'll probably say no.
-How about mustard, too?
Oh, of course, mustard. Don't want to have a dry sandwich.
He 'mustard' trained hard for this skill.
-Another little eye, a nose, and little mustard smile.
-That makes me happy!
-Now, let's get a pickle.
-My favourite part.
All right, let's get in here.
Did you just reach into a pickle jar with your foot?
I just reached into a pickle jar...
I can't even do that with my hand on the first try.
Just makes your mouth water to look at a pickle, doesn't it?
'Not when you've got your feet in the jar, it doesn't.'
We're almost there, we're almost there.
-I'm going to close up your sandwich now.
-And, there you have it...
-It's a sandwich made with a man's feet. Yum, yum!
-I'm not sure I'd eat that, Al.
-Can I get a little high-five on that?
There we go, knuckle bump. There we go.
Have you ever taught anybody to make a sandwich with their feet?
I've never had anybody willing to make a sandwich with their feet.
Now, what if I said I'd possibly be willing to try,
-would you work with me?
-I'm happy to try, yeah.
-It's harder than it looks, I warned you.
-Oh, it looks hard!
There you go!
Come on, Al, put in some 'ef-foot.'
Oh, you're going to get a knuckle sandwich in a minute, Ben.
I'll get it kind of prepped for you and move it out a little.
Baloney is a type of mixed sausage meat popular in America,
and it's also a funny sounding word.
-Nice, that's a good job.
-Quiet, Ben, I'm working!
Use both your feet sometimes.
It's easier if you use both your feet to grab something.
-And, shove it in.
-It feels like I'm putting my foot in an aquarium.
Ugh, the things I do for this show!
-You get that side, I'll get this side.
It's just as well Rob's here to lend a hand, or should I say foot.
There you go! You have yourself a sandwich.
Two grown men making sandwiches with their feet, now I've seen it all!
You're not going to eat those? Really?! Ugh!
