James Peterson, 34 and unemployed, attempted to set a Guinness World Record for fist-pumping.
He planned to fist pump for 17 hours straight! A great use of his time, we’re sure. LOLz!
We do not recommend trying this at home unless you are a trained professional or Jersey Shore cast member.
“I did this on St. Patrick’s Day but it was not documented. I used to hang light fixtures, so I am used to having my hands above my head.”
How did the self-described fist pumping veteran plan on keeping his form after hours and hours of pumping?
He said he used super glue “to ensure I maintain perfect fist formation.”
Wow. That’s dedication.
If he actually pulls it off, he’ll be the first individual with a fist-pumping record, though there are other group fist-pumping records.
Like the one the Jersey Shore cast led on New Year’s Eve 2010 where they got a crowd of 5,726 people pumping with them.
