man claimed that it took him hours of practice before he was able to break an unusual Guinness World Record by stacking five M&M's
Will Cutbill, 23, of Solihull, England
, said he had long wanted to be in the Guinness Book
of World Records, but it wasn't until the COVID-19
lockdown that he decided to make his dream a reality by stacking M&M's.
"I was in the living room, eating a bag of M&Ms, and I was incredibly bored, so I just decided to see how many of them I could stack on top of each other," Cutbill explained to Birmingham Live.
"I began to wonder if there was a world record for this, so I looked it up online and discovered that the most anyone had ever stacked was four," he explained.
Cutbill claimed he filmed his attempts for two or three hours before obtaining his stack of five M&M's.
"It's not something I would normally have taken the time to do, especially now that the sun is shining and the pubs are open again," he said, "but there wasn't much else to do at the time, so it seemed like time well spent."
Before the record-keeping organization verified Cutbill's video and awarded him a certificate, Silvio Sabba of Italy
and Brendan Kelbie of Australia
shared the record of four M&M's.
"When I finally managed to stack five M&Ms, I was absolutely ecstatic. I thought, 'Oh, my goodness, I've actually done it,'" he said. "Five M&Ms doesn't sound like a lot, but it was near impossible to do, so I was chuffed when I achieved it. I considered attempting six, but there's no chance.
