# Officially, officially, officially... Amazing! #

0:00:020:00:05

Welcome to Officially Amazing.

0:00:060:00:08

The fin-a-a-a-a-al.

0:00:090:00:15

Here's what's coming up in our fabulous finale.

0:00:150:00:18

He's forever blowing bubbles

0:00:210:00:23

but how will that help this soapy sorcerer break a world record?

0:00:230:00:27

And Officially Competitive reaches a scary, hairy climax, salon-style

0:00:290:00:35

but first, the return of an old friend.

0:00:350:00:37

The Space Cowboy, chainsaw-chucking champion, whip-wielding warrior,

0:00:450:00:51

record-hungry hero and occasional utter meany pegs is back.

0:00:510:00:57

And today, he'll be taking danger to a whole new level

0:00:570:01:01

as he attempts the record for the...

0:01:010:01:03

And, yes, that really does mean Spacey will be flinging a running

0:01:090:01:13

chainsaw about while spinning his body in circles.

0:01:130:01:17

It sounds terrifying because it is.

0:01:180:01:21

Let's get his thoughts.

0:01:210:01:22

Do you ever feel an element of fear or are you so confident that you

0:01:220:01:26

think, "Right, it's absolutely fine"?

0:01:260:01:28

I'm absolutely terrified.

0:01:280:01:30

I've got to keep being a little bit scared otherwise I'll get too

0:01:300:01:34

-nonchalant with it so...

-Mmm.

-..you've got to have a bit of nerves

0:01:340:01:38

-in order to stay safe.

-Is this even possible?

0:01:380:01:42

-We'll have to wait and find out.

-Ha-ha.

0:01:420:01:44

-Good luck, Space Cowboy.

-Thanks, Ben.

0:01:440:01:46

I'll leave you to prepare your machine. Here are the rules.

0:01:460:01:48

Three objects must be juggled with at least one of them being

0:01:500:01:52

a running chainsaw.

0:01:520:01:54

After each throw of the chainsaw, there must be a pirouette.

0:01:540:01:58

If any object is dropped, the attempt is over.

0:01:580:02:01

And the target for this new world record

0:02:010:02:04

is four consecutive pirouettes.

0:02:040:02:06

Spacey will be using a specially adapted chainsaw

0:02:070:02:11

and he's wearing a pair of sturdy boots to help protect his toes.

0:02:110:02:14

Paramedic Dave is standing by for this genuinely dangerous record.

0:02:150:02:19

Remember, Spacey is an expert.

0:02:200:02:23

He's been practising for years and knows exactly what to do in

0:02:230:02:26

any eventuality.

0:02:260:02:28

Do not try this yourself.

0:02:290:02:31

Space Cowboy, how are you feeling?

0:02:310:02:34

I'm a little bit nervous about this one to tell the truth.

0:02:340:02:36

Yeah. Well, you and me both.

0:02:360:02:38

So we're going to retreat back to a safe distance.

0:02:380:02:41

Mark, it's over to you.

0:02:410:02:42

OK, Space Cowboy, in your own time.

0:02:420:02:45

WHIRRING

0:02:450:02:46

Spacey starts without pirouetting to find his juggling rhythm.

0:02:460:02:50

Even this is extremely perilous.

0:02:500:02:52

He has to be absolutely confident when he does start

0:02:540:02:57

because the four spins he needs for the record must be consecutive.

0:02:570:03:00

And he's off.

0:03:030:03:04

Ooh, I can hardly watch.

0:03:050:03:07

Yes, a safe catch. Incredible.

0:03:070:03:10

He has to put an exact twist on each throw of the chainsaw

0:03:120:03:15

to ensure he's catching the handle and not losing his fingers.

0:03:150:03:19

This is expertise in action.

0:03:190:03:22

Each pirouette must be getting riskier as dizziness sets in.

0:03:240:03:29

THUD 'Oh, no.' Oh. Whoa.

0:03:290:03:31

Whoa. 'Great footwork from Spacey.'

0:03:310:03:33

From all his practice,

0:03:330:03:36

he knew instinctively what to do in that situation.

0:03:360:03:40

BRUM-BRUM-BRUM-BRUM-BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR Whoa.

0:03:400:03:42

Woo.

0:03:430:03:44

Well, I'm just glad he finished with all his limbs intact.

0:03:460:03:49

But did he manage to complete at least four valid consecutive

0:03:490:03:53

pirouettes?

0:03:530:03:54

Mark, it looked tremendous.

0:03:540:03:56

It looked scary.

0:03:560:03:58

Was it also a record?

0:03:580:04:00

I can tell you that you achieved...

0:04:000:04:02

-..five which is a brand-new Guinness World Records title.

-Yeah.

0:04:040:04:06

Truly spectacular.

0:04:060:04:08

Space Cowboy is a genuine giant from the world of jeopardous juggling.

0:04:080:04:13

Phew. After that, I think we need something a bit frothier

0:04:130:04:17

with Al and Haruka.

0:04:170:04:18

This is Su Chung Tai from Taiwan.

0:04:260:04:29

There's nothing this lord of the lather can't do with bubbles.

0:04:290:04:33

Yes, he can even set them on fire.

0:04:330:04:37

Don't try that at home.

0:04:370:04:39

Su is attempting the record for the...

0:04:390:04:41

The current record stands at 152

0:04:450:04:47

and this will be worth watching closely.

0:04:470:04:50

Binoculars out, everyone.

0:04:500:04:52

That's a nice, smooth start.

0:04:520:04:54

Oh, but the bubble has burst.

0:04:550:04:57

Was the weight of those virtually weightless bubbles just too much?

0:04:570:05:02

Attempt number two.

0:05:020:05:04

This looks better.

0:05:040:05:05

Astonishing.

0:05:050:05:07

But how is anyone going to count all those bubbles?

0:05:070:05:10

The adjudicators watch a replay in super slow motion

0:05:120:05:16

so has he blown more than 152 bubbles?

0:05:160:05:19

779.

0:05:220:05:24

Unbelieva-bubble.

0:05:240:05:26

Now, for three more bubbly personalities.

0:05:260:05:29

Well, two.

0:05:290:05:30

And now an epic contest meets its epic conclusion

0:05:400:05:45

as three epic competitors clash one last time in an epic world record

0:05:450:05:50

attempt you can epically try at home.

0:05:500:05:54

Epi-i-ic.

0:05:540:05:56

The Japanese gigant-osaurus,

0:05:560:05:58

Mr Cherry.

0:05:580:06:00

The American immens-osaurus,

0:06:010:06:04

US Ray.

0:06:040:06:06

And the British strong silent-osaurus,

0:06:060:06:09

Sizzling Steve

0:06:090:06:11

-osaurus.

0:06:110:06:13

It's...

0:06:130:06:14

Previously on Officially Competitive.

0:06:200:06:23

Mr Cherry ping-ponged his way to victory to claim

0:06:230:06:26

his fourth, consecutive Officially Competitive title.

0:06:260:06:30

Steve and Ray must now battle to avoid coming last.

0:06:310:06:34

Mr Cherry will be crowned later.

0:06:360:06:38

But he still has one burning ambition left for this series.

0:06:380:06:42

Currently, our champ holds an amazing 19 world records.

0:06:420:06:47

But he is desperate to make it a glorious 20.

0:06:470:06:52

He's been practising tirelessly for today's event.

0:06:520:06:55

The...

0:06:550:06:56

So, which wigs did our warriors want from this dazzling collection

0:06:580:07:03

that features the resplendent Shires quiff?

0:07:030:07:07

Raging red for US Ray.

0:07:070:07:10

Slinky sapphire for Sizzling Steve.

0:07:100:07:13

While Mr Cherry went rogue and brought this caramel number all

0:07:130:07:17

the way from Japan especially for this record.

0:07:170:07:21

So no-one chose the quiff then? Fine.

0:07:210:07:24

Let's get the team talks.

0:07:240:07:25

Steve, what makes a good wig for this record?

0:07:250:07:28

-Long hairs.

-Yeah.

-Nice and thin.

0:07:280:07:31

Sounds lovely.

0:07:310:07:32

Do we think we're going to get a record for this one, Steve?

0:07:320:07:35

-Yep.

-Yep. Yep.

0:07:350:07:38

-It's going to be a good try.

-Shush.

0:07:380:07:40

Sorry, Steve, but in the race for second place,

0:07:400:07:43

my man holds all the aces.

0:07:430:07:45

And also all the hair clips.

0:07:450:07:46

-If you had to pick a wig, did you pick one?

-Got one.

0:07:460:07:49

-Is it cool?

-It's awesome.

0:07:490:07:50

-Is it funky?

-Funky.

0:07:500:07:52

Ray, have you become a hair-clipping machine?

0:07:520:07:54

A high-velocity hair-clipping machine like a turbojet in the sky.

0:07:540:07:58

Ah, I love it.

0:07:580:07:59

Hair-raising stuff from Ray but what does the champ have to say?

0:07:590:08:03

In the next record, you'll be wearing a wig

0:08:030:08:06

which you brought all the way from Japan.

0:08:060:08:08

-TRANSLATION:

-Oh, aye, I've been with this wig for many a year.

0:08:090:08:12

Every day I wash it with shampoo and then expensive conditioner to keep

0:08:120:08:16

it soft, shiny and smooth

0:08:160:08:19

meaning the clips will snap on with minimum effort.

0:08:190:08:21

HE SNIGGERS

0:08:210:08:24

Squeaky-clean.

0:08:260:08:27

But before we get wiggy with it, let's get the rules.

0:08:270:08:31

Hair clips may be open before the attempt begins.

0:08:310:08:35

Once the 30 seconds are up, the clips must remain on the hair for

0:08:350:08:38

ten seconds to be valid.

0:08:380:08:40

And the record to beat, held by the USA's Lisa Eisenhart

0:08:400:08:44

is 64 hair clips.

0:08:440:08:46

-Steve's up first.

-Three, two, one...

0:08:470:08:51

-KLAXON BLARES

-..go.

0:08:510:08:53

I'm still a little hurt Steve's opted for the blue wig rather than a

0:08:530:08:56

Shires quiff tribute.

0:08:560:08:59

Oh, no.

0:08:590:09:00

Sadly, Ben, you can't get many hair clips into a quiff

0:09:000:09:03

no matter how big and ridiculous it might be.

0:09:030:09:05

Oi.

0:09:050:09:06

This doesn't seem very ordered.

0:09:090:09:11

No, indeed.

0:09:130:09:14

This doesn't look good in so many ways.

0:09:150:09:18

-KLAXON BLARES

-Stop.

-Oh.

0:09:210:09:23

Shantha must now count the clips.

0:09:230:09:25

Get your arm out of the way, Steve.

0:09:250:09:28

Ray's up next.

0:09:290:09:30

-KALXON BLARES

-Go.

0:09:300:09:32

You have to admire that flaming hairpiece

0:09:320:09:35

but it's the superfluous tache that I applaud. Tremendous.

0:09:350:09:38

But the curls in his wig are hindering the clipping process.

0:09:400:09:43

Here we go.

0:09:450:09:47

Let the hair work for you. Let's go. Focus.

0:09:470:09:49

Yes, it seems he was seduced by the razzle-dazzle of those red tresses

0:09:490:09:53

and it may cost him dearly.

0:09:530:09:55

I'm afraid that is one of Ray's weaknesses.

0:09:570:10:00

He does sometimes make the stylish choice rather than the sensible one.

0:10:000:10:04

Let that hair work for you. Work it, Ray.

0:10:040:10:07

-KLAXON BLARES

-Stop.

0:10:070:10:08

Red rug Ray is done for the day.

0:10:080:10:11

Onto the champ.

0:10:110:10:12

This is the big one.

0:10:120:10:14

Mr Cherry holds 19 world records.

0:10:140:10:17

He's utterly determined to make it 20 in this final show of the series.

0:10:170:10:22

He's laying out those clips with meticulous care

0:10:240:10:27

on his special clipping mat.

0:10:270:10:29

He's trained relentlessly for this record.

0:10:290:10:32

Tension fills the bunker.

0:10:320:10:34

I think we might be about to see something extraordinary.

0:10:340:10:38

-KLAXON BLARES

-Go.

0:10:400:10:42

This is sensational.

0:10:420:10:45

Mr Cherry is grabbing and clipping four hair clips at a time.

0:10:450:10:50

A revolutionary tactic in the field of wig-clipping.

0:10:500:10:54

Cherry's left nothing to chance.

0:10:540:10:56

His body, his mind and his hairpiece

0:10:560:10:59

have been thoroughly conditioned for this record.

0:10:590:11:02

Yes, those clips slide in perfectly

0:11:040:11:07

but can he eclipse that record of 64?

0:11:070:11:10

He just has to keep going.

0:11:140:11:16

Don't wig out on us now, Cherry-san.

0:11:160:11:19

-KLAXON BLARES

-Stop.

-And that's it.

0:11:200:11:22

An incredible effort.

0:11:220:11:24

That was the greatest thing I've ever seen. Good job, Cherry.

0:11:240:11:27

Well, I've never felt an atmosphere in the bunker like this before.

0:11:270:11:31

The emotion is palpable.

0:11:310:11:33

The love for the great man is clear.

0:11:330:11:36

CHEERING

0:11:360:11:37

Lumps are in throats.

0:11:370:11:39

Tears are in eyes.

0:11:390:11:41

Hearts are in mouths.

0:11:410:11:43

Has he done it? Has his dream of a 20th world record come true?

0:11:430:11:50

Did we get a world record? Shantha, come on.

0:11:500:11:53

Yes.

0:11:550:11:56

CHEERING

0:11:560:11:58

Calm yourself, Shantha. Calm yourself.

0:12:000:12:03

Who got that world record? And that last Officially Competitive point?

0:12:030:12:08

Well, in first place with a total of 66 clips...

0:12:100:12:15

..is Mr Cherry.

0:12:160:12:18

CHEERING Truly emotional scenes.

0:12:180:12:20

Cherry-san's fourth world record of the series and his 20th in total.

0:12:210:12:27

This man is Cherry-fyingly good.

0:12:280:12:31

So, Steve and Ray come equal second meaning no-one came last.

0:12:310:12:36

Well, Cherry wins a fabulous fourth successive title.

0:12:360:12:40

He's both an irresistible force and an immovable object.

0:12:400:12:45

Let us bow down to this regal, record-breaking royalty.

0:12:450:12:49

I am amazing.

0:12:490:12:51

A true champion of another Officially Amazing series.

0:12:510:12:55

See you again soon.

There's a bubblier, gentler record from China. And Sizzling Steve, Mr Cherry and US Ray do battle once last time - while wearing colourful wigs.
