A Pakistani man smashed 51 watermelons with his head in an effort to break a bizarre world record. Footage shows Rashid Naseem, 32, from Karachi, headbutting a batch of watermelons and cracking 51 of them to cheers and applause from the audience. It also smashed the record for most watermelons smashed with head in one minute is 43 held by Germany’s Tafzi Ahmed. The world record was filmed at Green Public High School at Shah Faisal Colony, Karachi, Pakistan.
The video shows a long line of watermelons ready for the world record attempt, before Naseem methodically demolishes each one. He makes a clear dent in some of them, spraying the water inside on to his face, while he had to go back and have a second attempt at others. After one of his double headbutts he splits the watermelon clean in two. In another record attempt seen on the vide, Naseem crushes 281 walnuts in 60 seconds, surpassing the previous record of 251.
Wearing a glove, he uses the bottom of his hand to smash the walnuts, before officials are seen counting them afterwards. Naseem, who is trained in martial arts and runs a martial arts training school, said he had been preparing for the attempts for several months. He said: ‘It takes lot of practice to break a world record. I’ve been practising for the attempts for past several months. ‘It requires lot of funds to attempt and break a world record and I’m doing all this without the support of any sponsor or any government help.’
Naseem had previously held several Guinness World Records including most green coconuts smashed with his head and most bottle caps removed with his head in one minute. He also claims to be a record holder for crushing the highest number of drink cans. He said: ‘My aim is to make 50 world records and make my country proud. ‘Setting up new records is giving me a lot of happiness as it gives my fellow a feeling of pride,’ said Naseem.
