Ever fancied trying to help set a world record?
Brits have already been part of the largest cream tea party (334 people) and the most amount of people to fit in a single pair of pants (57) to mark Guinness World Records Day.
The 7th annual Guinness World Records Day will see 300,000 people from all over the world try their hand at smashing some wacky world records today.
London played host to several record attempts, including showcasing the tallest basketball player Paul “Tiny” Sturgess, 23, who is a staggering 7 ft 7.26in-tall.
Amongst the headline record attempts which took place earlier today in Canary Wharf, London, British artist Joe Hill broke the previous Chinese held record for the largest 3D painting measuring 1160.45m².

Joining in with the fun, British inventors Edd China (fastest toilet, 42.25 mph); Colin Furze (fastest mobility scooter, 71.59 mph); and Perry Watkins (smallest roadworthy car, measuring 41 in high and 26 in wide, 30 mph) raced against one another.
Other crazy record breaking attempts have included the longest underwater radio broadcast and the heaviest tea bag which measures 8ft x 8ft and weighs in at over 100kg in Portsmouth.
“You don’t need to have a unique talent or possess super skills to take part in a world record attempt,” editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records, Craig Glenday, said. “That’s the spirit of Guinness World Records Day – getting involved and having some fun”.
“There are so many record attempts going on around the world on this one day that people won’t have to look far for some first-hand record breaking excitement,” he added.
