# Officially, officially, officially
# Amazing! #
Yeah! Woo-hoo. Uh-oh.
These are three of the world's leanest,
meanest and downright finest record-breaking machines.
They're going head-to-head with world records
and national pride at stake.
And what's more, they're taking on records that you can try at home.
MUSIC: "Living In America" by James Brown
Representing the USA is the onesie-wearing whippet US Ray.
He's a back-flipping, bouncing ball of all-American energy.
Representing the UK is Sizzling Steve.
Not as energetic as his American opponent
but with a steely will to win, he's flying the flag for Old Blighty.
Finally, for Japan, it's the uniquely understated Mr Cherry.
Don't let his quiet exterior fool you.
This man's a record-breaking legend.
With three events completed, the competition couldn't be
closer as our trio of titans have each been victorious in one event...
..with two world records being broken in the process.
For today's officially competitive challenge, it's...
-..bottoms up, as we see
who can sit on the most whoopee cushions in 30 seconds.
Last series, Mr Cherry broke the world record for cracking
walnuts with his backside.
I wonder if his buns of steel are up to this challenge.
Cherry-san. Last time you cracked walnuts with your bum.
Are you confident for this challenge as well, using your bottom?
-Oh, yes indeed, love.
My bum will help me win.
So you are definitely confident with your bum? OK. So here are the rules.
The person attempting the record must sit on each whoopee cushion
individually. Every cushion sat on must produce a noise resembling a...
PHRRT! If the cushion explodes or rips it
will not count towards the total.
The current record is 37 whoopee cushions in 30 seconds.
Cherry-san, are you ready? HE SHOUTS
-Adjudicator, are you ready?
-THEY SPEAK IN JAPANESE
Three, two, one. Go.
As usual, Mr Cherry is impeccably vest...I mean dressed.
He's flying by the seat of his tiny pants here.
He's got the wind in his sails.
This is whoopee-wizardry at its finest by Mr Cherry.
Whoops a daisy. He's reached the end of the line
-and he's run out of cushions.
One whoopee cushion at the death there. A cheeky effort by Mr Cherry.
While the adjudicator checks his cushion count,
we're off to the USA and UK to see how our boys get on.
Three, two, one. Go!
Ray's set his chairs out in a circle which is within the rules.
Will that give him the edge?
Sizzling Steve's gone for the straight line approach.
Both need assistance on hand to keep a steady supply of whoopee cushions.
This is like the windiest game of musical chairs I've ever seen.
You need to go a bit faster there, Al. Ray's caught you up.
I'm going as quick as I can.
They're letting rip but they need to make sure
-they're not ripping those whoopee cushions.
That was a cacophony of whoopee-cushioned craziness
but who has sat on the most? And do we have a world record on our hands?
Remember the number to beat is 37 cushions.
US Ray is certainly confident. The results are in.
In third place is...
and Sizzling Steve who sat on 29. Hard luck there, Steve.
Just not enough gas.
In second place is...
US Ray with 31.
He may not have won but at least he and Al had windy fun.
That means today's victor is Japan and Mr Cherry.
His relentless, straight-lined approach was the best.
HE SPEAKS IN JAPANESE
Japanese! Sushi! Tempura!
Boom! Boom! Boom!
We know he's won the contest
but have we got a new world record on our hands?
The current record stands at 37.
I had to discount some that ripped or didn't make a sound.
So your final result is...
..48. It's a new Guinness World Records' record.
Yeah! Number one champion!
