We Broke A World Record!

August 6, 2019 100 By Kailee Schamberger


– Unfortunately, we did not set a Guinness World Records title today. We did not set a new
Guinness World Records title. – What the hell just happened? (upbeat music) The longest duration to keep
three balloons in the air. – I would say the longest record would be, I’m gonna guess like nine
minutes and 30 seconds. – Initially I would think hours because Guinness World
Records are usually crazy. But 27 minutes (laughs). – I would say over 10 minutes. Which seems hard but I could also see it being like an hour or something crazy. – [Man] It’s five minutes and 35 seconds. – Oh, that’s not bad at all. – [Man] Five minutes. – What? – [Man] 35 seconds. – That seems pretty doable. – I could totally do this. This doesn’t seem hard at all. That’s really surprising actually. I’m so excited. I guess I’m ready. Oh, my God, wait! Okay, I guess I just started. (excited music) That’s actually harder than I thought. Okay, I’m gonna restart again. That was really hard. (upbeat music) – No, six minutes is too long. – So, as soon as the first
one goes up that’s when– Oh, God. – There has to be like
a strategy for this. There’s a certain like art, you know? Like, go, one, two– Oh, no! (groans) – That was like 12 seconds. Okay, wait, I can do this better. Oh, my God, this is gonna be hard. – I don’t know how someone can do this for five minutes and 35 seconds. That’s like crazy. – I’m not gonna be able to
break the Guinness World Record. – I think it’s gonna be very hard but I think I’m gonna practice. And I’m gonna figure out a way to do it. Yeah, I think I can do it. I can do it, I can figure it out. – [Singer] We talking about practice. (upbeat music) – I’m so excited. I feel like this could be like a big day that I’m gonna be making
a big change in history. And it could potentially
change the rest of my life. Like, who knows what’s gonna happen? (intense, rock music) – For the record, three, two, one, go. (upbeat music) Unfortunately, we did not set a new Guinness World Records title today. (sullen music) – I just came down from upstairs. Clearly, I didn’t set the record. I feel like if I had more
attempts, I’d break it. I need to train. And I need to do this for real. I want that world record. It is achievable. I think I want another shot at this. Okay, so, I’m actually on vacation this week in Eugene,
Oregon, visiting my parents. But you know, I got this thing coming up. So, I gotta keep training. So, we had a few people over. I told them about the record. Every one of them was
like, “That looks so easy. “I can definitely do that.” Every one of them tried it. And every one afterwards said, “Okay, actually that’s a
lot harder than I thought.” So, I feel a little vindicated. This is actually difficult,
like actually difficult. (laughs) I was like 10 seconds short. This is a workout. My shoulders legitimately
are killing me right now. And I am just dripping sweat. Do you think I have a chance
to break the world record? [Dad] Well, I can’t comment on that. – [Jeremy] Do you think I have a chance to break the world record? If anybody does, it’s you. – [Jeremy] Do you believe in me? – Oh, of course, always have. – Yes, yes, go for it. (intense music) – (sighs) Alright, well, today’s the day. I’m a little nervous. It’s all kind of relying on me but I think I’m gonna
break a world record today. (intense music) Alright, I’m ready. – Okay. This is for the title. Three, two, one, go. (determined music) – Oh, no (sighs). Oh, shoot, that felt pretty good. – So, Jeremy, this will
be your second attempt. Three, two, one, go. (determined music) – Oh, God. (determined music) (laughs) Shoot. (sighs) I’m so disappointed. I feel like if I had more
attempts, I’d break it. I’m sure I can do this, I just choked. I’m kind of demoralized about buckling under the pressure last time. I feel confident. I just gotta not blow it
when we’re live, you know? – Okay, Jeremy, this will be
your third and final attempt. (gentle music) – Oh, my gosh. Okay, alright, alright. You know, it’s funny. It kind of started off as
something sort of silly. But I think over the last few weeks, it’s kind of become something different. (gentle music) I wanna prove I can do this. (inspirational music) I want my name on the history books. I wanna be in one of those big books. (uplifting music) Did I do it? (audience applauds) Did I do it? (audience applauds) I’m so tired. (gentle music) – So, the current record and mark to beat is five minutes and 35 seconds. You achieved today five minutes 59.75 seconds. That’s a new Guinness World
Record title, congratulations. – Alright! Oh, that’s history right there. (audience cheering and applauding) – You are the new Guinness World Records title holder for the longest duration to keep three balloons in
the air, congratulations. – [Jeremy] Alright, thank you. – [Judge] Yeah, you’re welcome. – You know, I know it’s silly. Kind of dumb but I’m
pretty proud of myself. Did you just do this?
