Can you guess what record this man holds?

A few weeks ago, Guinness World Records’ Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday attended The Big Bang Fair in Birmingham, UK – and brought a special guest along with him.

Craig challenged the kids at the science exhibition to work out what record title Paul Hunn holds.

See if you can work it out before them and check out the kids’ hilarious shocked reactions in the video below.

Spoiler alert! Once they found out that Paul can do the world’s Loudest burp, a few kids decided to see how their belches measure up against his exceptional 109.9-decibel achievement.

Though there were some impressive attempts, Paul proved that he remains unmatched in his burping prowess.

You can find loads more of the grossest, smelliest, weirdest and noisiest records in our new Guinness World Records: Science & Stuff book.

Did you know…? Cows burp constantly because of their complicated stomachs and hard-to-digest diet. This is a problem because there are billions of them in the world and they burp methane - a powerful greenhouse gas. However, squirrels can't burp.
