(Scroll down for video) A woman of Australia, hit a world record by using her tongue to stop the blades of a spinning fan, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.
Zoe Ellis, who is also known as Zoe L'Amore, appeared on a television show in Italy, where she used her tongue to stop the spinning blades of the fan 32 times.
Officials of the Guinness World Records confirmed the new world record. However, another woman quickly broke the new world record by stopping the fan blades 35 times in 60 seconds.
Ashrita Furman now holds the world record title of most fan blades stopped with her tongue in 60 seconds, and Ellis will attempt to beat the record in the near future.
Ellis appeared in the Lo Show dei Record show in Italy, where she held two fans, and they were placed on the highest speed.
She then used her tongue to stop each fan 16 times. Ellis works as a circus performer in Australia. Ellis is married to daredevil Chayne Hultgren, who is also known as “The Space Cowboy.”
Officials of the Lo Show dei Record warned people not to try this stunt at home as the blades of the fan could slice off a tongue.
