With more time on his hands than he knows what to do with, serial Guinness World Record holder, David Rush from Idaho, has added to his collection.
The latest record to tumble is the most table tennis balls caught in shaving foam on the head in thirty seconds, thrown from a distance of 6.5 metres. For such a bizarre concept, it has been a fiercely fought crown. A stunt team called Dude Perfect held the record until 2019 with 21 balls until a Swiss duo, Jonas Lingg and Pascal Hunziker, topped it with 22.
Rush, though, with his trusty companion, Jonathan Hannon, throwing the balls, caught 29 on his head. It could have been more, several balls escaping the foam and bouncing on the floor. Their trick, it seems, was to shape the shaving foam like a bowl, making it easier to catch the balls.
Rush, who does these mad cap stunts to promote STEM education, was able to observe physical distancing. If you are really bored, why not give it a go?
