Man With The World’s Longest Tongue Can Do Amazing Things With It

A man in India has broken the world record for the longest human tongue.

Praveen has been inducted into the India Book of Records after officials confirmed his tongue measured a whopping 10.8 centimetres.

At just 20 years old, the Tamil Nadu native now is a world record holder after beating the previous title by 0.7 centimetres.

Praveen can do some pretty impressive stuff with the muscular organ as well, with a video showing he is one of very few people who can lick their elbows without being double jointed.

He can also not only touch his nose with his tongue, but he can also get well above the nose point. The young man can also nearly touch his goddamn eye with the organ.

Nick Stoeberl from California has held the Guinness World Record for his 10.1cm tongue since 2012 after he managed to break the length set by Brit Stephen Taylor (9.8 cm) in 2002.

Hilariously, Nick's dad was 'a huge fan of KISS', the glam rock band fronted by Gene Simmons who was known for sticking his incredibly long tongue out. Nick would apparently imitate that pose at home before realising his tongue was actually longer than Gene's impressive 10 centimetres.

Nick tried to take his fame to new heights when he appeared on America's Got Talent.

You'd be 100 per cent right in thinking you can't just show up to a game show like that and stick out your tongue each week to get through to the grand final.

So, the record holder did something with his large appendage at the audition. He dipped it in paint.

He actually made an artwork over the course of a couple of seconds, to which he received a resounding four no's from judges Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell, who all hit their buzzers.

They were keenly put off by the whole affair and you could see them look visibly unwell at the idea of sticking your tongue, large or not, into paint.
