Video of the Day
This Guy May Have Broken The World Record For Fastest Clapping
June 13, 2013

The guy in this video has got the clap (so to speak). But chances are, none of us can put our hands together anywhere near as fast him.

In this video, Bryan Bednarek appears to beat the world record for most claps in a single minute.

The official Guinness World Record holder is still Kent French. He managed to reach 721 claps in a minute back in March 26, 2003.

Bednarek hits 802 claps. That works out to about 13 claps a second, which is an awful lot of hand-slapping.

There's no word yet on whether Guinness is looking into Bednarek's claim to be the new fastest clapper - but whether or not he gets official world record status, the video has gone viral, and that deserves a round of applause.
