NEW YORK, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- This week's "Live with Regis and
Kelly" is one for the record books, as "Live's Guinness World Record
Breaker Week" continues. Today, three spectacular records were shattered
during the one-hour live morning show.
During "Live's" host chat segment, Guinness World Records
Researcher/U.S. spokesperson Stuart Claxton surprised host Regis Philbin
with a special presentation: Philbin broke his own existing Most Hours On
Camera record, and Claxton presented him with an updated certificate,
citing the new record of 15,662 hours on U.S. television.
Following Philbin's presentation, Kenneth Lee of Rutherford, NJ,
wielded his trusty samurai sword in a successful attempt to slash the mark
for Most Apples Cut in the Air by a Sword in One Minute. In a breathtaking
display of prowess, Lee sliced and diced his way from the current mark of
21 to a new high of 23 apples.
The final result was the tastiest of the three, as the Top 5 drivers in
NASCAR's Chase for the Nextel Cup -- Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson, Kevin
Harvick, Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch -- got in on the action by attempting
to break the record for Most Custard Pies Thrown in One Minute. Their
targets? Hosts Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa, "Live" Executive Producer
Michael Gelman, "Live" Executive in Charge of Production Art Moore and
"Live" producer Lori Schulweis. After a minute of complete pandemonium, as
the "Live" studio filled with flying whipped cream and custard, Matt
Kenseth hit partner Kelly Ripa with a record 17 pies, literally smashing
the existing record of 15.
"Live's Guinness World Record Breaker Week" commemorates the release of
Guinness World Records 2007 edition, the annual best-seller which is
currently in stores.
