Man With Loudest Burp Of All Time Challenges People To Beat His Record
| Last updated
The world's loudest burper has challenged anyone who feels up to it to beat his record.
Paul Hunn unleashed his monster burp, which reached an incredible 109.9 dB, at Butlins in Bognor Regis, UK, back in 2009, almost a decade after first breaking the record.
To put that into a bit of perspective for you, that's almost as loud as a pneumatic drill (around 120 dB). So yeah, it's pretty damn loud.
In the past, Paul has put his success down to a good curry and fizzy drinks, and over the past 20 years has appeared on TV shows and stages to demonstrate his unique talent.
But he is now looking for someone to come forward and take his crown.
In a post to his TikTok, Paul says (burps): "Happy Guinness World Records Day.
"If you think you can beat my record, then bring it on."
But this isn't the first time Paul has been faced with the prospect of being knocked off his perch since he first took the record in 2000.
In 2016, Aussie burper Nev Sharp threw down the gauntlet, saying: "I'm coming for you, Paul."
But unfazed by the challenge, he said at the time: "I've held my record now for nearly 16 years. Many challengers have come and gone and I am not going to give up my record lightly.
"Let's get this battle of the burping Ashes on."
Speaking about his ability, Paul said he was known for it at school and just kept going with it after leaving.
He adds that preparation is key.
He told Guinness World Records: "My preparations before doing a very loud burp would be maybe the night before I would have a spicy curry or something like that to get the gasses going in my stomach.
"On the day of the attempt or demonstration, I will make sure that I don't eat, so that my stomach is nice and empty. That way I can get more air in beforehand.
"As I'm about to burp, I take a fizzy drink, I breathe in some more air, I lean forward, and as I feel the air rising, I just let rip, so to speak."
What do you think? Reckon you've got it in you to defeat Paul?
