2 Idaho Men Earn Spot in Record Book by Playing Catch with Giant Ball

Two Idaho men have been immortalized in the Guinness World Records book by throwing a huge inflatable ball back-and-forth. While that might not seem terribly impressive, it should be noted that they threw the ball between them 356 times in just three minutes.

The feat, which the duo achieved over the weekend, breaks the previous record of 180 passes in three minutes, Guinness officials say.

Apparently, the men are pretty good when it comes to throwing and catching inflatable balls. They also hold the record for overall ball passes, throwing it back-and-forth 4,169 times without dropping it, per Guinness officials.
