Bloke with world's longest tongue paints Holly and Phil live on This Morning
| Last updated
It's not your usual Monday morning when someone draws you with their extraordinarily long tongue.
Finally using his record-breaking body part for good use - *cough cough* - Nick Stoeberl used his tongue to paint Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield live on This Morning.
The United States government official - who wouldn't disclose his real job on air - holds the Guinness World Record with his 3.97 inch (10.1cm) long tongue.
He referred to his tongue as being 'very eco-friendly' with regards to licking up any mess at dinner.
"That is true, though in restaurants I will try to be polite and use a napkin," he insisted
"As a kid, sticking my tongue out, of course it was longer than other people who may have been sticking their tongue out at me."
His unusually large tongue made him popular at school and earned him the nickname Gene Simmons - a reference to the KISS bassist known for his own very large tongue.
Discussing the social advantages of having a long tongue, he admitted: "People always want to talk to me. And people always introduce other people to me by saying, 'Oh this is Nick, he’s got the Guinness World Record for the longest tongue'.
"So socially, it’s quite useful."
The US tongue twister also joked: "I may or may not be the result of a government experiment, like the Hulk, yes. If I’m not careful, I may turn green."
Nick has previously painted his own version of the Mona Lisa for his brother.
Though that one stays in the family, his other paintings have sold for hundreds of dollars.
Live on air, he then got to work on a portrait of the two hosts, with Holly admitting: "It’s so weird, I feel like I shouldn’t be watching you do this. It feels like a personal moment."
Keeping the drawing sweet and simple, he delivers a very basic painting to This Morning hosts, who were pretty impressed by his effort.
Holly said it was ‘very good’ and Phil thought it looked like a couple of characters from The Simpsons.
Though Nick admitted to worries about choking on his own tongue - a 'frightening' prospect which thankfully has never been an issue for him - you have to admit it's a pretty nifty party trick.
Commenting on the segment, one viewer tweeted: "This gave me the heave when I was eating my lunch…couldn’t end up watching it!"
Another added: "Watching on delay and will fast forward this part. Feel (sick) just looking at the previews."
A third said: "That is disgusting, turned my stomach looking at it!!!"
