A Brampton, Ont., man thinks he can dance — for 110 hours straight to secure a world record.
Suresh Joachim hopes to set the record by New Year’s Eve. Under the rules, he is allowed to take five minutes off each hour.
The current world record holder managed to dance for 108 hours. In that length of time, you could listen to the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive” more than 1,620 times.
Joachim has already succeeded in breaking 63 Guinness World Records, but he wants to beat 500 in total.
So far, his world records range from having the largest wedding party (79 bridesmaids and 47 groomsman), the fastest one-mile crawl, standing on one foot for three days, running for 42 straight days, and watching television for 69 straight hours.
Why would a man do such things?
The father of two says it’s simple. “I like to be number one in the world,” he told CTV News.
Joachim is also aiming to raise money for children’s charities.
“My aim is to help children around the world who suffer from poverty and war,” he said.
On his website, he says he wants to raise $1 billion.
His wife understands that some might see her husband as eccentric.
“Some people admire him, and some people don’t understand,” said Christa Joachim. “They think he’s crazy.”
