There's nothing fake about it. The Los Angeles-based KTLA morning show went for a strange Guinness World Record during Friday's broadcast.
Emmy-winning Meteorologist Henry DiCarlo has developed a desire to smash world records. As a part of "Henry's Friday Feats," he has taken on a pumpkin-smashing world record and a challenge to put on an unruly number of socks at breakneck pace. However, he's still looking for ways to get that sweet, sweet Guinness certificate. This time he attempts to pop a record number of balloons by sitting on them.
There is indeed a world record for that.
The record he was going after is owned by Loris Giuliano, who popped 77 balloons in a single minute. (He also could have gone after Ashrita Furman's record of 46 in 30 seconds.) Those are the records listed by Guinness, but David Rush had an attempt in June that claims to have broken both records, including popping 95 balloons in 60 seconds.
