David Rush is a man from Idaho who’s broken more than 150 Guinness world records, including the farthest tortilla throw, the longest time to balance a hoe on his nose, AND the fastest half-marathon while skipping. Yep. All the dumb, super-specific ones. David says he does all this shit to promote STEM education. His latest world record attempt is the fastest time to wrap a human being in plastic wrap. Specifically his wife, Jennifer.
The couple originally set the record back in 2019, completing the feat in just 1 minute and 57 seconds. But their title was soon STOLEN! by another couple with too much time on their hands. Those two completed the stunt in 1 minute and 29 seconds. Obviously, David couldn’t let that stand, so he re-wrapped long-suffering Jennifer in plastic wrap to take back his title. This time he practically halved his time at just 1 minute and 2.44 seconds. Wow, either David upped his wrapping time, or Jennifer lost half her body weight since 2019.
David says the biggest challenge for the record is to ensure there are no gaps and each of Jennifer’s limbs is individually wrapped. He managed to do it, but it still took a dozen tries. Here’s David’s video of him and Jennifer breaking this extremely important world record:
It’s too bad David wasn’t born 3000 years ago in Ancient Egypt. He coulda cleaned up as the fastest embalmer on the Nile! “You Work Them To Death Building Pyramids, We Wrap ‘Em In One Minute Flat!”
