Waah!

0:00:050:00:07

Welcome to Officially Amazing, The Best Of The Bunker.

0:00:070:00:10

Coming up... The Moffat brothers return

0:00:100:00:13

for their most spectacular record attempt yet...

0:00:130:00:16

..but first, our second team event of the series, in...

0:00:170:00:21

..and things are about to get serious,

0:00:260:00:29

with today's challenge...

0:00:290:00:30

-This is a very serious team event.

-Indeed.

0:00:360:00:40

One team-mate will have their head sternly slathered in shaving foam,

0:00:400:00:44

before sombrely attempting to catch ping-pong balls in the lather.

0:00:440:00:48

Let's get the no-nonsense rules to this weighty challenge.

0:00:480:00:52

Only one 250ml can of shaving foam

0:00:520:00:55

may be squirted onto the head.

0:00:550:00:57

Participants must stand two metres apart.

0:00:570:01:00

Only one table tennis ball

0:01:000:01:02

may be thrown at a time.

0:01:020:01:04

And, to count,

0:01:040:01:05

the balls must remain in foam for five seconds

0:01:050:01:07

once the time is up.

0:01:070:01:08

And the target for the new record

0:01:100:01:11

is 15 table tennis balls caught in 30 seconds.

0:01:110:01:15

Now, a serious challenge requires serious attire, so, as the catcher,

0:01:150:01:20

I'm resplendently bedecked in competitive cape and swimming cap.

0:01:200:01:26

Steve applies the shaving foam.

0:01:260:01:28

PRRRFT Oh...

0:01:280:01:30

Was that the cream, Steve, or was that you?

0:01:300:01:32

Both.

0:01:320:01:33

He'll be aiming ping-pong balls at my head

0:01:350:01:38

once he is happy with the creamy coverage.

0:01:380:01:40

Steve steps back to admire his work, and glory beckons.

0:01:400:01:45

-Three, two, one, go!

-KLAXON

0:01:450:01:49

Amazing ping-pong placement from the Sizz.

0:01:530:01:56

That's six in a row!

0:01:560:01:58

Yes, just look at Steve's beautifully gentle lobs

0:01:580:02:02

onto my creamy coiffure...

0:02:020:02:04

..but his excellent early work may come at a cost.

0:02:040:02:07

There's less space to aim for,

0:02:070:02:09

and some balls are hitting other balls

0:02:090:02:11

already lodged in my foamy crown.

0:02:110:02:15

Some could even be knocked off.

0:02:150:02:17

Watch this one hold on for dear life.

0:02:180:02:20

It's hit.

0:02:210:02:23

Will it cling on to your frothy fringe?

0:02:230:02:25

No-o-o!

0:02:260:02:28

Turn.

0:02:300:02:31

Steve opens up a fresh patch of cream,

0:02:310:02:33

and gets a view of my noble profile.

0:02:330:02:36

Oh, another ball-on-ball misfire!

0:02:380:02:41

Stop!

0:02:410:02:43

That's time. Now they must stay stuck for five seconds.

0:02:430:02:48

Team Japan are next.

0:02:490:02:50

Cheeky's catching, so Cherry's throwing.

0:02:500:02:53

And while the great man carefully builds his landing zone...

0:02:530:02:57

Behold! The quiff has emerged from its foamy cage unscathed.

0:02:570:03:02

Cherry has loaded his ping-pong balls

0:03:020:03:04

into his personalised popcorn pot -

0:03:040:03:06

and look, Cheeky's feet are behind the line,

0:03:060:03:09

but her head is bent over it,

0:03:090:03:11

to lessen the distance of two metres.

0:03:110:03:14

Very smart, and totally legal, Ben.

0:03:140:03:17

-Go!

-KLAXON

0:03:170:03:18

Wish I'd thought of that.

0:03:180:03:19

Look how Cherry is keeping the pot close,

0:03:210:03:24

so he can throw with real speed.

0:03:240:03:27

Yes, maybe too fast -

0:03:270:03:28

an early ball-to-ball collision, there.

0:03:280:03:31

CHEEKY SPEAKS JAPANESE

0:03:310:03:32

Listen to how he instructs Cheeky to tilt her head

0:03:320:03:35

to reveal untouched foam.

0:03:350:03:38

Oh, but he's smashed another sphere to the floor.

0:03:390:03:42

Wait, was that a double throw?

0:03:420:03:45

It was. Two balls slipped from Cherry's grasp -

0:03:450:03:48

one lodged in the splodge, but it won't count.

0:03:480:03:50

Whoa!

0:03:550:03:56

-Cherry just hit the same ball three times in a row.

-Incredible!

0:03:560:04:01

His aim is almost too accurate.

0:04:010:04:04

Stop!

0:04:040:04:05

Ooh, I think that last one was just too late -

0:04:050:04:09

but that's the five seconds.

0:04:090:04:11

Team USA, step forward.

0:04:110:04:14

Ray's catching, and Al's piling it high, here,

0:04:140:04:17

for a really cushioned landing.

0:04:170:04:19

Stick a flake in that and it would look delicious. Mm!

0:04:200:04:23

-Go!

-KLAXON

0:04:230:04:25

-A fast start, here.

-And they're landing nicely.

0:04:270:04:31

Apparently, Ray's the catcher because of his agility -

0:04:310:04:34

but he's not moving much, is he?

0:04:340:04:36

With aim this good, he doesn't need to.

0:04:370:04:39

Apart from that time...

0:04:400:04:42

..and also that time.

0:04:430:04:46

-Sorry, Ray.

-Right on the nose!

0:04:460:04:49

-Oh!

-Ray, face me.

0:04:510:04:53

Yeah, there you go.

0:04:530:04:55

-Face the other way.

-Stop!

-Oh.

0:04:550:04:56

Can they all stick for five seconds?

0:04:560:04:59

Ooh, yeah!

0:05:010:05:03

Did any of these sudsy skulls snare at least 15 ping-pong balls

0:05:030:05:07

for a new record?

0:05:070:05:09

Official adjudicator Shantha,

0:05:090:05:11

do we have a world record?

0:05:110:05:13

Yes.

0:05:160:05:18

Whoo!

0:05:180:05:20

In third place, with 11...

0:05:210:05:24

..is Team USA...

0:05:250:05:27

Even they were just four off the target.

0:05:270:05:30

..and in first place, with a total of 16...

0:05:300:05:35

..is Team UK.

0:05:370:05:38

THEY CHEER

0:05:380:05:39

Yes!

0:05:390:05:40

Not only our second team event triumph of the series,

0:05:400:05:43

but our first Guinness World Records title together, too.

0:05:430:05:48

They scored four more than Team Japan,

0:05:480:05:50

meaning just a quarter of the bunker predicted correctly.

0:05:500:05:54

And, with just three shows left,

0:05:540:05:56

perennial champ Mr Cherry

0:05:560:05:58

must be feeling the sizzling heat,

0:05:580:06:00

because Steve is hot on his heels.

0:06:000:06:02

Our legends will be back in a short while,

0:06:020:06:05

right after we welcome back some more record-breaking royalty.

0:06:050:06:09

Yes, Officially Amazing's most prolific poachers

0:06:210:06:24

of world records...

0:06:240:06:26

..return for a ninth appearance on the show.

0:06:340:06:36

And, so far, they have yet to suffer the bitter taste of failure.

0:06:370:06:41

Eight records tried, eight records smashed.

0:06:420:06:46

But today, these daredevil drivers will be taken to the limit,

0:06:460:06:50

as they attempt the record for...

0:06:500:06:52

So, not only will Alastair be driving on two wheels,

0:06:570:07:01

John will be performing doughnuts - that's skidding in full circles -

0:07:010:07:05

around him as he moves.

0:07:050:07:07

It's going to be demanding, dazzling

0:07:070:07:10

and - well, this is the Moffats - very dangerous.

0:07:100:07:14

Which is why we have a medic and a firefighter on standby.

0:07:140:07:18

While the brothers get ready, here are the rules.

0:07:180:07:23

The attempt must take place on a dry surface of asphalt or concrete.

0:07:230:07:28

Both cars must be constantly moving throughout the attempt.

0:07:280:07:32

John's in a circular motion going round Alastair's Mini on two wheels.

0:07:320:07:36

And the record to beat is ten doughnuts in one minute.

0:07:380:07:41

Here they go.

0:07:410:07:43

OK, Alastair is on two wheels.

0:07:430:07:45

Time will start when John, in the blue car,

0:07:450:07:47

begins his first doughnut...

0:07:470:07:49

Ooh!

0:07:510:07:52

..and there is the first one.

0:07:550:07:57

Absolutely superb skills from both Moffats.

0:07:570:08:00

There is almost no room for error.

0:08:010:08:03

But this is great driving -

0:08:040:08:07

another doughnut done.

0:08:070:08:10

Alastair has to keep it slow and steady.

0:08:100:08:13

Oh, he did wobble - but still, John circles him beautifully.

0:08:130:08:17

John must complete each doughnut

0:08:220:08:24

in less than five and a half seconds to reach the target of 11.

0:08:240:08:28

Doing really well!

0:08:280:08:30

That's halfway, and the boys have managed six doughnuts in 30 seconds.

0:08:330:08:38

With just five more needed, that record is in touching distance.

0:08:380:08:42

Can they keep their nerve, their speed and their precision?

0:08:420:08:47

Delicious doughnutting.

0:08:480:08:50

Come on, John!

0:08:510:08:52

Watch as John locks the front wheels

0:08:520:08:54

and spins the back ones

0:08:540:08:55

to power him through that circle.

0:08:550:08:57

This is a breathtaking balancing act from Alastair.

0:09:000:09:04

But can he remain on two wheels for the full minute?

0:09:050:09:09

This is going to be very close!

0:09:100:09:12

Ooh, and speaking of close, how close was that?!

0:09:130:09:17

John almost nicked Alastair's back bumper.

0:09:170:09:21

That was just millimetres from a major Mini mess!

0:09:210:09:24

Ooh! Such tight angles!

0:09:240:09:27

Can they squeeze in one more?

0:09:290:09:32

KLAXON

0:09:320:09:33

And that's time.

0:09:330:09:34

-Wow!

-No idea how many, but it looks really good!

-Wow.

0:09:340:09:39

That was incredible!

0:09:390:09:41

What a stunning spectacle of stunt driving.

0:09:410:09:45

The boys seem in great spirits,

0:09:450:09:47

but did they complete more than ten doughnuts?

0:09:470:09:49

Over to official adjudicator Mark.

0:09:490:09:52

On that attempt, you achieved...

0:09:520:09:54

..12, which is a brand-new world record!

0:09:570:09:59

ALL CHEER

0:09:590:10:01

They broke the record by two doughnuts!

0:10:010:10:04

That's nigh-on miraculous, even for the mind-blowing Moffats!

0:10:040:10:08

That's nine records in six series.

0:10:100:10:13

Surely the perfect ten can't be far away!

0:10:130:10:16

And speaking of perfection, meet one of our top predictors

0:10:180:10:21

in the bunker today, Tilly.

0:10:210:10:23

For our final record...

0:10:230:10:24

..who's she going to lock in the gunge tank of doom?

0:10:280:10:31

Steve.

0:10:310:10:32

Loving your work, Tilly.

0:10:340:10:36

Ray and Cherry then commence some serious tandem tooting...

0:10:360:10:40

Three, two, one, start!

0:10:400:10:44

..but do they manage the 75 toots needed to break the record?

0:10:440:10:48

Today, you managed...

0:10:480:10:50

..53.

0:10:540:10:55

Ohh!

0:10:550:10:57

Well, you know what that means.

0:10:570:10:59

Yes - glorious, gungy scenes.

0:10:590:11:01

See you next time.

0:11:010:11:02

Things get serious as our Officially Competitive legends attempt a record involving ping pong balls and lots of shaving foam. Also, the magnificent Moffatt Brothers return to face their most difficult and dangerous record attempt yet - and who will end up in the Gunge Tank of Doom?
