FIRE TUNNEL — Take two men, a motorcycle and a whole bunch of fire, and what do you get? A Guinness world record, apparently.
Stuntmen Enrico Schoeman and Andre de Kock decided to hop onto a pink motorcycle with an adorable sidecar and drive through a tunnel of fire 395 feet long. Why do this, you ask? Why not?
Apparently Schoeman and de Kock broke their own record by completing the ride and walked away with only blisters and their last shred of sanity.
The video looks fairly dangerous, but when you realize how close the men are to the blaze and the fact that Schoeman couldn’t even see where he was going, you realize this was madness.
Sure, we all want to be in the Guinness Book of World Records, but let’s try to find some record that doesn’t involve 395 feet of fire.
Maybe see if you can break the record for fastest shoe-tying master.
