Local outlet WSAW reports:
Steve Ruppel is a Weston chiropractor, who on the side likes to break Guinness World Records. This is his fifth record broken, he’s already done four including running a half marathon wearing the most amount of t-shirts.
“I thought it was the most insane thing ever, I thought it was impossible. I wasn’t even sure why it was even a record, but I thought after a while ‘I should probably do that,'” said Ruppel, the Guinness World Record breaker.
14,268 minutes in 116 showings of the same movie.
“The amount of time that it takes, I’ve had to take time off work, I would take long lunch breaks to accommodate watching an entire movie in that particular time frame. And then just time on the weekends where I’m not doing other things,” said Ruppel.
What’s big to note here is that Ruppel only needed to watch the movie 104 times to break the record, but decided he was going to go all out.
Wonder what he’s gonna do with Avengers: Endgame?
