As we enter week 9 of quarantine, we’ve probably done some things to pass the time that we normally wouldn’t do. We’re going to assume that’s the case for these two Idaho men. They tackled one of the unusual Guinness World Records.

The record is for ping pong balls caught in shaving foam on someone’s head in 30 seconds.

The record was 22 ping pong balls, but after the two Idaho men tried it…the new record is 29 ping pong balls caught in 30 seconds.

David Rush, who has broken more than 100 Guinness records to promote STEM education, and Jonathan Hannon took on the unusual record, which was formerly held by stunt team Dude Perfect with 21 ping pong balls before being beaten in 2019 by Swiss friends Jonas Lingg and Pascal Hunziker, who managed to get 22.

A video of the latest attempt shows Rush forming the shaving cream on Hannon’s head into a bowl shape to better catch the balls, which Rush had to toss from a distance of at least 6.5 feet away. Several of the balls tossed by Rush ended up bouncing on the ground, but the final count of balls that stuck in the shaving cream on Hannon’s head was 29, beating the previous record.
