A New Record!: Man Watches TV For 94 Hours Straight

April 19, 2016


Seen here losing his mind, Alejandro "AJ" Fragoso sets the Guinness World Record for binge-watching television with a staggering 94 hours straight. That can't be good for you. One time I watched TV for 16 hours straight and was convinced I got eye cancer and leaky bowels.

Fragoso's TV playlist included episodes of "Battlestar Galactica," "Twilight Zone," "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Bob's Burgers," among other shows.

"Around the second day we started having minor hallucinations we started seeing writing on the screen that wasn't there," he told local TV station WPIX. "You forget there's an outside world at that point you're trapped in this tiny room."

Participants were granted five minutes of rest for every hour of TV they watched, a Guinness official said.

Wait -- you get five minutes rest for every hour of TV? I feel like that's cheating. Also, those sound like the least fun hallucinations I've ever heard of. Why would a person even do this? This guy needs to get a job. I barely have enough time for two hours of television a night. "Because you work so hard?" No, because of the four hours of video games I play before.

Thanks to Douglas F, who prefers his mental health to a Guinness World Record.
