Welcome to Officially Amazing,
the show that goes to the greatest of great lengths to bring
you the most spectacular world records from across the globe.
The Moffatts are back, attempting their most difficult record yet.
What on earth are these guys doing?
Find out later. First, we must hotfoot it to the secret bunker.
One top secret hideout
and a series of world record attempt that you can try a home.
Featuring the pride of Britain, Sizzling Steve.
-American Idol US Ray.
-And Japan's all conquering Mr Cherry.
Strap yourselves in for...
Last time, Ray's Tigger-like talent
propelled him to a first point,
but the Sizzler's two points and one world record see him
remain proudly atop the school board like a ravishing colossus.
Over now to the bunker, for some breaking news.
Today's record requires strict safety precautions.
Nose pegs on standby.
Bunker doors flung widely open and absolutely no naked flames
within a ten mile radius.
A Code Red fart alert has been issued
because today we are dealing with baked beans.
Yes, today our competitors is will attempt the record for
most baked beans eaten with chopsticks in one minute.
History tells us that Ray is a chopstick chump.
Can he do better today? Time for a team talk.
-Oh, Ray. Chopsticks again, huh?
Last year, you said with the chopsticks you were
ambidextrous, you could use your right
and left hand, but you were equally terrible with both.
-Which hand are you going to be using the year?
-I'm going to go right.
-Can't go wrong when you go right.
And you are right with Ray.
-US RAY! US RAY! US RAY! US RAY!
BEN: Customary delusion from the US camp.
They don't know that Steve has spent weeks
conducting fastidious bean research
and even took this photo to prove it.
This research - have you tried
different varieties of beans?
I have tried all them to find a perfect bean.
I suppose in doing so,
you have become a bit of a baked bean enthusiast.
-What could go wrong?
While Cherry knows exactly what could go wrong.
Have you ever eaten baked beans before?
-Oh, aye, English baked beans
are t'best in the world.
HE IMITATES BREAKING WIND
So your training has been quite windy.
-It has been highly unpleasant, yes.
TMI, Cherry-san. Here are the rules.
The beans may not be drained of their sauce.
Only one bean may enter the mouth at a time
and only chopsticks can move them.
Our bean eaters must demolish 50 beans in one minute
to set this new record.
Reliably rubbish chopsticker US Ray is up first.
Three, two, one...go!
Come on, we, you have got this. All right... Oh, that went nicely.
'Yes, Al, some beans are actually going into his mouth.'
'I knew my little man wouldn't let me down.'
He is doing quite well.
'He is doing better than "quite well", Ben.
'This is a previously incompetent man - now look.
'He is living the bean-y dream.'
'Yeah, the thing is, Al, on closer inspection,
'there is not always a bean trapped between the sticks.
'He missed that one...
'and that one.'
'But you can take that one all the way
'to the Baked Bean Bank of America.'
'Yeah, he missed that one too.'
-Five, four, three, two, one.
'Next at the dinner table - a genuine chopstick champion.'
Are you hungry, Cherry-san?
Three, two, one...go!
'This record means so much to Cherry.
'His hands are visibly shaking.
'Look at them.'
'Cherry is using Steve's personal bean dish.'
'An incredible show of sportsmanship from the Sizzler,
'but will he regret such baked bean bonhomie?
'The man from Japan is a bean-chomping machine,
'demolishing bean after bean after bean.'
-Three, two, one.
'Is this the face of a champion?
'Or will Steve's extensive baked bean research
'give him the winning edge?'
'He has insisted on decanting his own beans,
'as it his right.'
'How is that going to help, though?'
'Steve is someone with a degree in bean studies, apparently.'
Beans, beans, good for the heart. The more you eat...
the better chance you have of breaking this record.
-Three, two, one...go!
'The stakes are so high in world-class bean-eating,
'but the Sizzler is eating up the pressure and the beans.'
'Steve's eyes are like lasers -
'as one bean goes down,
'the next is already being identified as a target.
'True fact, Steve is not actually swallowing every bean.
'He is storing them in his cheeks
'and planning on scoffing the lot in the final seconds.
'Observe his emergency cup of water in case it all goes wrong.'
Five, four, three, two, one.
'Shantha gets the final glory
'of ensuring the Sizzler's mush is bean-free.
'Did any man break the magic 50-bean barrier?'
Has Ray finally mastered the chopsticks?
Ray came third with 36 beans.
'35 more than I predicted.'
Both Mr Cherry and Steve beat the minimum.
There were only six beans in it.
'Less than a forkful!'
The winner, with 71 beans, is...
'So Cherry claims his first world record of the series.'
Baked beans master!
-Oh, I've got a bellyache.
HE IMITATES BREAKING WIND
Steve is devastated.
He smashed the record
but still lost to baked bean bulldozer Cherry-san.
So with Cherry and Steve joint top with two points
and one world record each,
the game is on.
But right now, it is time for...
Throughout Officially Amazing history, we have been stunned
by the incredible record-breaking feats
of the mighty Moffatt brothers.
But now, there is a new set of stunt siblings in town.
They look cool. They could totally break any record they wanted to.
But, sadly, they got stuck in traffic.
So we've got the Moffatt brothers back!
Yes, today the magnificent motoring Moffatts...
..will attempt the world record for...
Which is this.
Three cards simultaneously skidding around 360 degrees in a small space.
Every time that you have been on Officially Amazing, every series,
you have always broken the record.
So, we are going to do that again today, right?
As I say, no pressure,
but please don't let Officially Amazing viewers down.
Let's ignore the nervous laughter and get to the rules.
All three Moffatts must complete ten doughnuts
within a marked-out circle,
the diameter of which is three-times the length of the cars.
The cars must not touch, and the Moffatts need to perform
ten doughnuts in 55 seconds for the record.
Moffatt brothers, in your own time.
'OK, Trevor is doughnut-ing.
'So is John.
'And that is Alistair spinning too. The attempt is on.'
Looking good. They are all three in now.
'They have to drive with such precision to keep within the circle
'and avoid hitting each other. It is looking good.
'Could we have a record on the first attempt?'
'Oh, but Alistair has spun out.
'He had to leave the circle after just five doughnuts
'to avoid being hit by Trevor.
'It goes from bad to worse,
'as the Moffatts can't complete ten doughnuts,
'let alone do it in record time.'
Oh, we have lost Trevor.
We've lost John.
There is something just not quite clicking at the moment.
If the Moffatts can't get the communication
and the choreography right,
this record just isn't going to happen.
'Every attempt is mentally and physically exhausting.
How long can the Moffatts keep this up?'
This time will they nail it? I hope so.
'This is much better.'
Come on, Moffatts.
'Three Moffatts spinning in perfect unison. They are nearly there now.'
That is it, keep it up.
'That is ten doughnuts at last!
'But did they do it in record-breaking time?'
I can tell you that it was a valid attempt.
You needed a time of 55 seconds or less.
I can tell you your attempt took 50...
'Oh, 0.2 seconds outside of world-record time.
'Can the Moffatts recover from the setback?
'Is the record even possible?
'Is there a man on Earth more titanic than Trevor?
'Find out after things get hot.'
Welcome to Italy, where Trever, with two Es, and Lloris
will battle to break Trever's world-record for...
Yes, that means walking barefoot on fire for more than
Sounds like a terrible idea, mostly because it is.
But these guys have a plan - mind over matter.
'Please don't burn feet
'even though I am going to tread on the really hot fire.'
Hmm... Is that really going to work?
I have my doubts. Anyway, it is time to walk on fire.
They do not look like they are having a good time.
They are walking on coals that are burning
at over 500 degrees centigrade.
-Lloris has stopped. He is nowhere near the record.
Trever is still going. Oh, he has given up too.
The presenters are thrilled. What went wrong?
Every fire walk, you don't ever know ever know what will happen.
You just have to have faith.
If the universe will allow you, you will walk that line.
Oh, so it was the universe's fault.
Nothing to do with cooking your own feet.
Laws of science - one, positive thinking - nil.
But, just in case -
please, Universe, make some magic for the Moffatts.
'In unfamiliar scenes, Alistair, John and Trevor Moffatt
'have so far failed in their attempts
'to break the doughnut record.
'They have one attempt left.
'They need ten doughnuts in under 55 seconds.
'Can they maintain their 100% record-breaking record?
'Let's find out.'
We're straight back in.
Come on, Moffatts.
'It is a great start, but can they keep it up?'
It is a strange, almost hypnotic ballet, but is it a record?
'They need to doughnut quicker than ever before,
'but the extra speed increases the margin for error,
'and there can be no mistakes.'
You can see the concentration etched on their faces.
'That is eight. It is looking good.'
KLAXON SOUNDS That is it.
'Incredible. They have managed ten doughnuts again,
'but did they crack that 55-second target?'
I remember once saying Moffatt plus Moffatt plus Moffatt
equals world record.
Is that equation going to come good today? Mark, what's the news?
It's a time of 50...
4.54. It's a brand-new Guinness World Record.
Was there ever any doubt?
Come here, you.
'And they have done it
'by less than half a second.
'Four series, four world records.
'Certified Officially Amazing legends!
'We will see you next time for more adrenaline-fuelled fun like this.'
# Well, the Moffatts cut it fine with their doughnut time
# But they managed a speedy ten
# It looked really cool And as brothers, they rule
# But I prefer Fernando and Ken
# Ray's chopstick-ing improved
# But Cherry was not to be moved
# He broke the bean-eating record
# Now can someone open those bunker doors
# And we learnt that walking on fire is pretty stupid
# But here comes the rubbish bits
# The outtakes! #
