Video of World Record-Breaking 804 Handclaps in One Minute

Chicago singer-songwriter Bryan Bednarek captures the world record for most handclaps in a single minute with 804 — beating the 802 that he achieved last year — in a video posted by musician Rob Scallon. Bednarek has also detailed the extremely specific guidelines set by the Guinness Book for officially recognizing the record attempt.

A ‘clap’ is confined to noises made by an individual’s two palms meeting. At least two qualified and experienced sound engineers, preferably from a university or studio dealing with recording, should be in attendance and monitor the attempt, and take responsibility for determining the number of claps. Two experienced timekeepers (e.g. from a local athletics club) must time the attempt with stopwatches accurate to 0.01 seconds.
