These days, it seems like everybody and their housekeeper holds a Guinness World Record. While many artists have them for their legitimate success in the music industry—think Lil Wayne (Rapper With the Most Hot 100 Hits), Rihanna (Best Selling Digital Artist), and Psy (Most Watched Video On YouTube)—a few hold records for much more dubious achievements. More than a few of these records border on ridiculous. There has to be a better way to spend your time than underwater radio broadcasting or dressing up like Elvis, right? Without further ado, we present 12 Guinness World Records we have no idea why anyone wanted to break.
