Welcome to Officially Amazing, the show that's got more records

0:00:250:00:27

and record breakers than you can shake a stick at. Even a chopstick.

0:00:270:00:32

In this series we travelled the world to bring you the coolest,

0:00:320:00:36

wildest, fastest, hairiest and weirdest records

0:00:360:00:41

and record attempts there are.

0:00:410:00:43

Today's incredible official Guinness World Records include...

0:00:430:00:47

Haruka meets a man in Japan who is hoping his masterful noodle making

0:00:490:00:52

can get him two world records.

0:00:520:00:54

Stop!

0:00:540:00:56

Sizzling Steve turns his mind to a mental challenge

0:00:570:01:00

in another mesmerising, sizzle-rising record attempt.

0:01:000:01:03

Thailand, Belize, East Timor...

0:01:030:01:06

Al meets a record-breaking woman

0:01:070:01:09

with a frightening fascination for footwear.

0:01:090:01:11

Oh, I just love them!

0:01:110:01:13

And Al and I are in America

0:01:140:01:16

facing off with some record-breaking junk food.

0:01:160:01:19

But first, here's a record attempt that's...

0:01:190:01:21

Huh? Oh!

0:01:250:01:28

ARGH! Oh!

0:01:280:01:29

This is Sam, or as he likes to be known, Samsam Bubbleman.

0:01:320:01:36

A man so good at making bubbles he named himself twice.

0:01:360:01:41

-So, you're a bubbleologist?

-That's correct.

0:01:450:01:47

I do all kinds of things with soap bubbles from teaching

0:01:470:01:51

the science behind bubbles to breaking Guinness World Records,

0:01:510:01:54

-to making special effects for films.

-Wow.

0:01:540:01:57

So, everything to do with bubbles...

0:01:570:01:59

-Everything to do with bubbles, yeah.

-..Samsam the Bubbleman is your man.

0:01:590:02:02

That's right.

0:02:020:02:04

Sam already holds many records for his in incredi-bubbles and today

0:02:040:02:08

he's hoping to set a new one for the largest free-floating indoor bubble.

0:02:080:02:14

But before his attempt, I've asked Sam to show me

0:02:140:02:16

some of his other bubbly record-breaking creations,

0:02:160:02:19

like the longest chain of bubbles, or the caterpillar.

0:02:190:02:23

Oh, so this is the caterpillar forming then?

0:02:230:02:25

The wand becomes what I'm using to hold the bubble with

0:02:270:02:30

and the straw becomes what I'm using to make bubbles.

0:02:300:02:34

And lots of bubbles inside another bubble.

0:02:350:02:38

I... Wow. I lost count after about three.

0:02:430:02:46

-Ta-da!

-Look at that!

0:02:460:02:48

Look at that, you released them into the wild!

0:02:480:02:51

Now, I've always used washing-up liquid and water

0:02:510:02:54

but what's the secret to Sam's bubble solution?

0:02:540:02:57

Every great bubble man needs his... bubble solution.

0:02:570:03:00

-Yeah, I call it Super Pop.

-Wow.

0:03:000:03:03

Because I like to celebrate the fact that bubbles pop, you know?

0:03:030:03:05

Every bubble I've ever had has popped.

0:03:050:03:07

-What's in it? Can you tell us?

-I can't tell you I'm afraid.

0:03:070:03:11

-It's a secret?!

-Top secret.

-So, how did you come up with this solution?

0:03:110:03:14

Is it your own special formula?

0:03:140:03:16

Yeah, this is what I've been working on for the last 24 years

0:03:160:03:18

-and I've been improving it and improving it.

-Oh, no way.

0:03:180:03:22

Yes, way, your eyes aren't deceiving you,

0:03:220:03:25

Sam can also make square bubbles filled with smoke!

0:03:250:03:28

So, Sam, I loved all your bubble tricks

0:03:280:03:30

but you're here to do more than just tricks today, aren't you?

0:03:300:03:33

I'm going to try and set the new world record

0:03:330:03:35

-for the largest indoor bubble.

-How big could this be?

0:03:350:03:38

Well, I'm hoping that we'll get a bubble the size of a car.

0:03:380:03:41

Wow, that sounds great - if a little impossi-bubble!

0:03:410:03:44

Oh, that was a bad one. Oh, dear.

0:03:440:03:46

Anyway, whilst Sam makes his vast bubbly creations

0:03:460:03:49

using his giant wands and secret bubble solution,

0:03:490:03:52

our assistants will take photographs from all angles so that the

0:03:520:03:55

size of Sam's biggest bubble can then be calculated by computer.

0:03:550:03:59

He'll try this many times and when he's happy he's got a nice big

0:04:000:04:04

record-breaking bubble, he'll shout, "Take!" To cue the photographers.

0:04:040:04:08

Let's get the rules.

0:04:080:04:10

Sam is allowed to use his own mix for the soap bubble solution,

0:04:100:04:14

each bubble must be sealed at the end to make it complete

0:04:140:04:18

and Sam's biggest bubble will need to be photographed

0:04:180:04:21

to verify its size.

0:04:210:04:23

Right, it's record time again.

0:04:230:04:26

-Bubble assistants, are you ready?

-ALL: Yeah.

0:04:260:04:29

-Excellent. Official adjudicator Craig, are you ready?

-I'm ready.

0:04:290:04:32

-Excellent. Samsam the Bubbleman, are you ready?

-I'm ready, Ben.

0:04:320:04:36

Good. Then let's blow a massive bubble!

0:04:360:04:39

Well, it's big but not quite big enough to fit a car in.

0:04:420:04:46

Wow!

0:04:480:04:50

And just look at it dissolve as it pops. Amazing.

0:04:500:04:54

But he's going again.

0:04:560:04:57

Surely this is the one? It's a gargantuan bubble.

0:04:570:05:01

No, Sam thinks he can go bigger.

0:05:010:05:03

Remember, the bubble must be closed at the end or it's not

0:05:030:05:07

a proper bubble - more of a soapy windsock.

0:05:070:05:10

-Oh, is this the winning bubble?!

-Take.

0:05:100:05:13

Well, Sam certainly thinks so.

0:05:150:05:17

Now what happens is all the photographs that we've taken

0:05:250:05:28

of those bubbles will go off to a third party

0:05:280:05:31

who compiles them into 3D images. That's how they measure it.

0:05:310:05:35

This is the computer image they used

0:05:350:05:37

to calculate exactly how big the bubble was.

0:05:370:05:41

This bubble is so big you could fit a small car in it

0:05:410:05:45

but has it set a new world record?

0:05:450:05:47

Yes, it has.

0:05:490:05:51

That bubble would hold a staggering 3,300 litres of water -

0:05:510:05:56

that's enough for 33 nice hot baths.

0:05:560:05:59

Now, here's Haruka.

0:05:590:06:00

Ahh! Oh.

0:06:040:06:06

Oh.

0:06:080:06:09

We take our food very seriously here in Japan.

0:06:120:06:15

In fact, if you're in a Japanese restaurant,

0:06:150:06:17

you will hear a lot of people slurping their food.

0:06:170:06:20

Slurping is considered a sign

0:06:230:06:25

that you really appreciate what you're eating.

0:06:250:06:27

Be sure to remind your mum about that if she tells you off.

0:06:270:06:32

No-one takes their food quite as seriously as this man.

0:06:320:06:36

Meet Hiroshi Kuroda, he's a noodle master.

0:06:360:06:39

Today he's going to use his noodle-making skills

0:06:410:06:44

to try and break not one but two Guinness World Records.

0:06:440:06:48

But what exactly is a noodle?

0:06:490:06:51

Like bread and pasta, it's mainly flour, salt and water.

0:06:510:06:55

Noodles are made by stretching dough out and doubling it over.

0:06:550:06:59

Every time he does this, it doubles the number of noodle strands.

0:06:590:07:03

Then he has two stretch it out again and again,

0:07:030:07:06

and break the ends off to make the strands individual.

0:07:060:07:10

What does it take to become a great noodle master?

0:07:100:07:13

-TRANSLATION:

-You must work really hard every day

0:07:130:07:17

and pay attention to your noodles. You must never give up.

0:07:170:07:21

The noodle master already holds three world records,

0:07:210:07:24

including the longest noodle, at nearly 548 metres -

0:07:240:07:29

that's almost as long as 11 Olympic swimming pools in a line!

0:07:290:07:33

He also handmade the thinnest noodle at just 0.22 millimetres -

0:07:330:07:38

that is the equivalent of two human hairs.

0:07:380:07:41

Hiroshi's first record attempt today

0:07:410:07:44

is for the most portions of noodles made in three minutes.

0:07:440:07:48

That currently stands at eight but can he make even more?

0:07:480:07:51

As he prepares the dough for this attempt, the rules state

0:07:510:07:55

he must make every noodle strand under seven millimetres in diameter

0:07:550:07:59

and each portion should weigh at least 150 grams.

0:07:590:08:03

Noodle master, are you ready?

0:08:030:08:07

Three...two...one...go!

0:08:070:08:10

To set a new world record,

0:08:110:08:13

Hiroshi needs to make at least nine portions -

0:08:130:08:16

that is one bowl of noodles every 20 seconds.

0:08:160:08:19

Literally, fast food!

0:08:190:08:21

SHE SPEAKS IN JAPANESE

0:08:210:08:23

Just look at him go!

0:08:240:08:25

Doubling it over, stretching it out.

0:08:250:08:28

Every time he does this, the noodle strands get thinner.

0:08:280:08:32

Finally, he rips the ends off,

0:08:350:08:37

making them all individual strands to count as a portion.

0:08:370:08:41

SHE SPEAKS IN JAPANESE

0:08:440:08:45

One minute and 30 seconds gone.

0:08:450:08:47

Hiroshi must make sure his portions comply with the rules.

0:08:470:08:51

This is the eighth portion now.

0:08:510:08:53

That's quick but have they all been the correct weight and size?

0:08:530:08:57

He hasn't got long. Is there time to make one more portion?

0:09:000:09:04

-Stop.

-Oh, time's up.

0:09:050:09:07

The adjudicators are now measuring the noodle portions

0:09:100:09:13

to check they are all the correct weight and size.

0:09:130:09:16

Now, let's get the official result.

0:09:160:09:18

We had to disqualify three portions,

0:09:180:09:21

as the width of the noodles that we have measured

0:09:210:09:23

was over seven millimetres.

0:09:230:09:25

Oh, three have gone but did he get more than the required eight?

0:09:250:09:30

And with your total of...nine portions

0:09:300:09:34

you have achieved a new Guinness World Record title.

0:09:340:09:38

Congratulations!

0:09:380:09:39

He did! Hiroshi made 12 portions and although three didn't comply with

0:09:420:09:46

the rules, nine were legal and that's good enough.

0:09:460:09:50

So, that's one new world record under his belt.

0:09:530:09:57

Now he's got his eyes set on another one as he attempts to make

0:09:570:10:00

more than 65,000 individual noodles in one minute.

0:10:000:10:04

Thanks, Haruka. Now here's Al in America.

0:10:040:10:07

What's up and welcome to California, better known as the Golden State,

0:10:150:10:19

because of that golden thing in the sky.

0:10:190:10:21

You might not recognise that, Ben, that's called the sun.

0:10:210:10:24

Now clearly I appreciate a nice pair of shoes.

0:10:240:10:27

Well, the woman we're going to meet here today has

0:10:270:10:29

so many shoes, no wardrobe in the world could fit them all in.

0:10:290:10:32

She's definitely the Queen of SOLE.

0:10:320:10:35

Welcome to the world's largest shoe related collection.

0:10:360:10:40

Hi, Al, welcome to Darl's shoe heaven.

0:10:420:10:44

Darlene Flynn has fallen head over heels in love with everything

0:10:490:10:53

and anything to do with shoes.

0:10:530:10:55

I'm talking to you on a red shoe phone next to a shoe lamp

0:10:590:11:02

on a shoe table. I feel like I died and went to shoe heaven.

0:11:020:11:06

-Hi, Al, you doing OK today?

-Just talking to my mom.

0:11:060:11:09

Well, that's good.

0:11:090:11:10

-Darlene, what is it with you and shoes?

-Oh, I just love them.

0:11:100:11:13

They're beautiful, they're unique. They're just awesome.

0:11:130:11:15

What number got you the actual record for items?

0:11:150:11:18

My actual Guinness Record was 15,665.

0:11:180:11:22

-But as of today, I have 16,179.

-16,179.

0:11:220:11:30

That's more than a millipede would need. That is staggering.

0:11:310:11:35

Well this is a shoe room.

0:11:370:11:38

My first shoe room that I ever had in my collection.

0:11:380:11:41

'Yes, she did just say her FIRST shoe room.

0:11:410:11:44

'Darlene has a house full of shoe rooms now.'

0:11:440:11:46

It looks like a shoe threw up in here.

0:11:460:11:49

This is shoe everything.

0:11:490:11:51

Darlene thinks about shoes from the moment

0:11:510:11:53

she wakes up till the time she goes to bed.

0:11:530:11:56

She even brushes her teeth with one.

0:11:560:11:57

You have an electric shoe toothbrush.

0:11:570:12:00

Of course, every woman needs one of those.

0:12:000:12:02

Does every woman really need one of these?

0:12:020:12:04

Well, the shoe lady does.

0:12:040:12:06

The shoe lady needs it, OK, I'll accept that.

0:12:060:12:08

The shoe lady needs it.

0:12:080:12:10

And look, Ben, Darlene's got the same pair of slippers as you!

0:12:110:12:15

Oh, yeah! Not!

0:12:150:12:17

This one is called the 1507.

0:12:170:12:19

My son made it for me, cos it's made out of 15.07 in change.

0:12:190:12:23

-I paid 1,800 for this one and it's called Miss Vicky.

-1,800!

0:12:230:12:29

You could buy a 60-inch flat screen TV for that, Al!

0:12:290:12:32

I see a block of wood here. Can you walk me through that?

0:12:320:12:35

My son saw this when he was fishing and he actually

0:12:350:12:38

dug it out because he said it looked just like the shape of a shoe.

0:12:380:12:41

So the shoe obsession runs in the family?

0:12:410:12:44

I think I've found something in your house that is not shoe related.

0:12:440:12:47

-No, I don't think so.

-I did.

-What could that be?

-The two pups.

0:12:470:12:51

-I did it.

-Well, you know what, they don't look like shoes,

0:12:510:12:54

but this one is called Shoesy-Q and this one is Bootsy Shoebert.

0:12:540:12:59

Wow, it seems nothing is safe.

0:12:590:13:01

Right, from now on, Al, I'd like to be known as Ben Shoe-ires

0:13:010:13:05

and you can be, wait for it, Al Jack-shoe.

0:13:050:13:09

Ben! Your bad footwear puns aren't required today so go on, SHOE!

0:13:090:13:13

And as I leave Darlene, it seems that I've paid the ultimate price

0:13:130:13:18

for looking at her gigantic shoe collection.

0:13:180:13:21

From a large record breaker now, to some of the longest.

0:13:210:13:25

# These are the longest things in the world

0:13:310:13:36

# Yes, length is no problem here

0:13:360:13:39

# Some of the longest things in the world

0:13:390:13:43

# For the longest have no fear

0:13:430:13:46

# Well, Lukas Steiner loved getting dressed, you could tell

0:13:480:13:53

# With a lovely shirt and shoes to fit he scrubbed up pretty well

0:13:530:13:57

# But his acrobatic tendencies would make you all say wowsers

0:13:570:14:00

# Cos he did the longest backflip into a pair of trousers

0:14:000:14:05

# So who do you live with?

0:14:080:14:09

# Your mum and your dad

0:14:090:14:11

# Or brothers with bad habits or a sister who drives you mad?

0:14:110:14:15

# Well this lady lived with scorpions for the longest time ever

0:14:150:14:19

# In 33 days she got stung 13 times I'm not sure that was clever

0:14:190:14:23

# These are the longest things in the world

0:14:260:14:28

# Yes, length is no problem here

0:14:300:14:33

# Some of the longest things in the world

0:14:330:14:37

# For the longest have no fear

0:14:370:14:40

# Ken Owen love a lie in and he had pain resistant powers

0:14:430:14:47

# He laid down on a bed of nails for 300 hours

0:14:470:14:51

# But most of all my favourite fellow that we'll mention here is

0:14:510:14:54

# Anthony Victor with the longest hair

0:14:540:14:57

# To sprout from a person's ear

0:14:570:14:59

# These are the longest things in the world

0:15:010:15:05

# Yes, length is no problem here

0:15:050:15:08

# Some of the longest things in the world

0:15:080:15:13

# For the longest have no fear. #

0:15:130:15:17

Time now for...

0:15:170:15:20

This is Sailendra Nath Roy,

0:15:280:15:30

a fearless record breaker who wants to attempt to set a new

0:15:300:15:33

Guinness World Record

0:15:330:15:34

for the longest distance travelled on a zip wire.

0:15:340:15:37

But how is he going to do it?

0:15:380:15:41

Will he hang by his feet, his ears, or his hair?

0:15:410:15:46

Well, it can't be his hair, he hasn't got much of it

0:15:460:15:49

and it looks about as strong as candyfloss. But, hang on...it is!

0:15:490:15:54

They're tying his hair onto that hook, which he'll be hanging from

0:15:540:15:59

as he travels down the zip wire. Ouch!

0:15:590:16:02

Sailendra looks determined, or is that terrified?

0:16:020:16:05

It's hard to tell. So, will a brand-new record be born?

0:16:050:16:09

Or is there a good reason no-one has tried this before?

0:16:090:16:13

And as he puts his faith in his follicles

0:16:150:16:18

and whoever tied his hair in that nice plait, he's off.

0:16:180:16:21

Remember, his hair is supporting

0:16:230:16:25

the entire weight of his body right now.

0:16:250:16:28

Should the unthinkable happen,

0:16:300:16:32

like if his hair broke or his scalp, er...fell off,

0:16:320:16:36

then this hook, which currently bears none of his weight,

0:16:360:16:39

is a backup safety harness to stop him falling.

0:16:390:16:42

That's got to hurt, surely.

0:16:440:16:46

Yes, he's done it! Whoo!

0:16:480:16:50

There you have a very triumphant Sailendra with

0:16:520:16:55

a slightly baggy scalp.

0:16:550:16:57

Now, while they all make a mess celebrating Hindu-style,

0:16:570:16:59

let's head back to Haruka in Japan.

0:16:590:17:02

Part two.

0:17:050:17:06

This is Hiroshi Kuroda, or as we like to call him, The Noodle Master.

0:17:100:17:16

Earlier, he set a new world record for the most portions of noodles

0:17:160:17:20

made in three minutes.

0:17:200:17:22

But a man this driven is never going to be satisfied with just one

0:17:220:17:25

noodle record. He's now going for the most noodles made in one minute.

0:17:250:17:31

Hiroshi's aiming to make more than an incredible 65,536 noodles to

0:17:310:17:38

beat his own current world record.

0:17:380:17:41

Now pay attention because here comes the noodley maths bit.

0:17:410:17:44

The noodles are made by folding over the length of dough

0:17:440:17:47

and stretching it out.

0:17:470:17:49

Every time he folds it over, it doubles the number of strands.

0:17:490:17:52

Then he has to stretch it out again, making the strands thinner each time.

0:17:520:17:57

Double once and you get two strings of dough.

0:17:570:18:00

Double again, you get four strings and so on, doubling again

0:18:000:18:04

and again within one minute.

0:18:040:18:06

Until he reaches 65,536.

0:18:060:18:10

If Hiroshi can double that once more then he'll have,

0:18:100:18:13

I'm sure you've guessed it, 131,072 strings.

0:18:130:18:19

So, whilst The Noodle Master gets ready for the final preparations,

0:18:190:18:23

let's get the rules.

0:18:230:18:24

Noodles can be any length or thickness

0:18:250:18:28

but they must be individual strands and not attached to each other.

0:18:280:18:32

Oh! This is tricky!

0:18:320:18:34

-Noodle Master, are you ready?

-OK.

0:18:360:18:39

Three, two, one, go.

0:18:390:18:42

He's off to a great start.

0:18:480:18:50

Stretching the dough out until it gets thinner and thinner.

0:18:500:18:54

Hiroshi needs plenty of flour to stop the noodles sticking together.

0:18:540:18:58

Ten seconds.

0:18:580:19:00

He must remember to break off the ends he's been holding

0:19:000:19:03

in order to make them into individual noodle strands.

0:19:030:19:06

Only 20 seconds are now left. The pressure is on for Hiroshi.

0:19:110:19:15

Stop.

0:19:230:19:24

Time is up. He gave his all. But was it enough to set a new record?

0:19:240:19:29

Let's get the verdict.

0:19:290:19:31

Today you tried to break your own record for the most

0:19:330:19:36

noodle strings made in one minute.

0:19:360:19:38

Today's attempt was invalid as you didn't cut

0:19:400:19:45

the ends of the noodle strings that you had folded.

0:19:450:19:50

Disaster!

0:19:500:19:52

Hiroshi has been disqualified

0:19:520:19:53

as he hasn't managed to separate the noodles by taking the ends off.

0:19:530:19:58

But he's still the holder of the current Guinness World Record,

0:19:580:20:01

65,536 noodles made in a minute and to us

0:20:010:20:06

he's still the officially amazing Noodleman.

0:20:060:20:09

BELCHING

0:20:160:20:19

We, the people of Officially Amazing HQ,

0:20:190:20:22

worship a hero who stands above the rest.

0:20:220:20:25

His name is Sizzlin' Steve

0:20:250:20:27

and he's the very model of a modern major record breaker.

0:20:270:20:31

By day a student, by night asleep.

0:20:310:20:34

Still, there's just time in between to attempt some records.

0:20:340:20:38

But not just ANY records,

0:20:380:20:40

ones you can try at home.

0:20:400:20:43

-Sizzlin' Steve, you are about to attempt another record.

-Yep.

0:20:430:20:47

Tell me about it.

0:20:470:20:48

This record is for the most flags identified in one minute.

0:20:480:20:51

Entertaining and educational. I'm calling that edutainment, Steve.

0:20:510:20:55

I like it a lot. How many flags are there?

0:20:550:20:58

There's 192 world flags. The current record is 57.

0:20:580:21:02

-And you reckon you can do it?

-I think I can get about 60.

0:21:020:21:06

That's the confidence of The Sizzler, and if any man can, HE can!

0:21:060:21:10

So for this Guinness World Record attempt,

0:21:100:21:12

Sizzlin' Steve will be shown randomly selected

0:21:120:21:15

pictures of national flags one at a time

0:21:150:21:17

and he'll have to guess which country that flag represents.

0:21:170:21:21

So this is the UK flag, but what's this one?

0:21:210:21:24

If you got that right you're better than me.

0:21:250:21:28

To beat the current record of 57 flags guessed in one minute,

0:21:280:21:32

he'll need to name a country pretty much every second.

0:21:320:21:35

He needs to not just sizzle, he needs to be on fire.

0:21:350:21:39

He gets one guess for each flag and he can pass on the ones

0:21:390:21:42

he doesn't know.

0:21:420:21:43

OK, here we go. Player's in place.

0:21:430:21:46

On my count, Sizzlin' Steve, get ready to name those flags.

0:21:460:21:50

Three, two, one, sizzle!

0:21:500:21:52

Pass.

0:21:590:22:00

Ecu... Pass.

0:22:030:22:04

Pass.

0:22:120:22:13

Pass.

0:22:290:22:30

Pass.

0:22:330:22:34

Ten seconds to go.

0:22:420:22:43

Five, four, three, two, one, stop!

0:22:470:22:52

-That's your lot, Steve. How did that go?

-Not as well as I hoped it would.

0:22:540:22:59

What we need to do now is check with Claire. How did Sizzlin' Steve do?

0:22:590:23:04

Well, Sizzler, the record you had to beat was 57.

0:23:040:23:07

I'm afraid you didn't make it this time.

0:23:110:23:13

It's not a record for you today.

0:23:130:23:16

So sadly, fate has rained on Steve's parade

0:23:160:23:19

and drizzled on his sizzle,

0:23:190:23:21

but he still managed to get 30 correct in the time.

0:23:210:23:24

Good effort, Sizzler! Now for something...

0:23:240:23:26

This next record holder is officially bad for you, and when I say bad,

0:23:330:23:36

I mean terrible.

0:23:360:23:38

You know, you got to live a clean life - exercise, good nutrition -

0:23:380:23:42

and, honestly, you Brits are a lot better than Americans are at that.

0:23:420:23:45

You want proof, we're here in search

0:23:450:23:47

of the world's most calorific burger, and we found it.

0:23:470:23:50

This is where it lives, baby.

0:23:500:23:52

Welcome to the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas.

0:23:530:23:57

This place prides itself on being the world's unhealthiest restaurant.

0:23:570:24:01

-# Highway to hell!

-#

0:24:010:24:04

It's pretty weird.

0:24:040:24:05

These nurses are actually waitresses.

0:24:050:24:08

That guy dressed as a doctor is the owner

0:24:080:24:10

and you have to wear a hospital gown before you can eat.

0:24:100:24:14

It's like something out of a movie. But what's the film?

0:24:140:24:18

And who's the record-breaking star?

0:24:190:24:21

-HAMMY TRAILER VOICE:

-In a world where no-one is safe...

0:24:240:24:27

..one burger wants revenge,

0:24:290:24:32

and this time it's personal.

0:24:320:24:35

Starring...

0:24:360:24:38

..cooked in fat, and introducing...

0:24:510:24:54

-NORMAL VOICE:

-Oh, so a bit healthy. Ahem!

0:24:570:25:00

-HAMMY VOICE:

-One man with a loaded bun...

0:25:000:25:04

It...will eat YOU!

0:25:070:25:11

MUSIC FROM PSYCHO

0:25:110:25:14

Yep, it's pretty big.

0:25:140:25:16

Standing at around 21.5cm tall and weighing in at over 1.5kg,

0:25:160:25:23

it's the world's most calorific and, therefore, unhealthy burger.

0:25:230:25:28

And I'm going to eat it.

0:25:280:25:30

All right, guys, here we go. The first bite's going down the hatch.

0:25:300:25:33

I got lard on my fingers, I got a food mountain to climb.

0:25:450:25:49

You guys don't want to watch this. We need a burger fact. Let's go.

0:25:490:25:52

From the most unhealthy burger to the biggest ever burger

0:25:520:25:56

made in the USA in 1999.

0:25:560:26:00

It was over 7 metres across and it weighed 2.74 tonnes.

0:26:000:26:05

That's the same weight as an elephant.

0:26:050:26:08

Right, let's see if Al's managed to finish the tower of terror!

0:26:080:26:12

Ohhh, goodness! MOBILE PHONE RINGS

0:26:120:26:16

Hello?

0:26:160:26:18

Oh, hey, Al, it's Ben.

0:26:180:26:19

Ben, I can't move. I just ate this whole burger.

0:26:190:26:23

-Yeah, how did eating the massive burger go for you?

-How did it go?

0:26:230:26:27

Unbelievable!

0:26:270:26:28

Yeah, cos it seems to me you hid it behind the paper towels, Al.

0:26:280:26:31

It's still here!

0:26:310:26:33

Yeah? Yeah, make that face.

0:26:350:26:37

I'm disappointed. I'm not angry, just disappointed.

0:26:370:26:41

So now, to prove my point for Queen and country,

0:26:430:26:47

I, Ben Shires, will show you how us Brits do it.

0:26:470:26:53

Nyum nyum nyum...

0:26:530:26:54

# Rule Britannia Britannia rules the waves

0:26:540:26:57

# Britons never never never shall be slaves! #

0:26:570:27:05

-Mmmm!

-I don't know what to say...

0:27:050:27:08

And that, Al, is why you fail.

0:27:080:27:10

Dessert menu, please.

0:27:110:27:13

Well, that's the end of the show, but there'll be more fantastic,

0:27:140:27:18

fabulous and frenetic record attempts

0:27:180:27:21

next time on Officially Amazing. See you then.
