New York City, New York, United States / January 7, 2009

Dan Rollman makes fruit history by fitting 60 bananas down his pants while wearing them, a new world record. The average-sized bananas were purchased from a street vendor in New York City’s Chinatown district.

Rollman achieved the feat on January 9, 2009 at a World Record Appreciation Society[] event held at Asia Roma, a New York bar. Corey Henderson and Brian Cohen witnessed the record and counted the bananas.

    Would anybody actually attempt a similar record like this but with many pairs of socks instead of bananas?

    All I could think as they went to put the 149th in was "Oh god, how horrible would it be if the tape holding the pants at his feet broke at this moment and the bananas spilled out??"

    Yup, I definitely did. I also changed my pants right afterward, because they were GROSS.

    In my defense, the record does say any pair of pants would be permitted, and I fully expect someone in a tent that's tied off at the ankles to beat my record one day.

    A good follow up would be Longest Amount of Time to Go About Your Day with 100 bananas in your pants...

    I think this is a stretch. Henri wears a new pair of pants in the record that are obviously stretchy and larger than the ones he has worn for most of the night.

    Maybe some criteria then needs to be set, "while wearing tight-fitted pants" ie, I could beat the record wearing the biggest clown pants I can get my hands on and fit 500 bananas in them...

  • I guess he wanted the record more that you. I am thinking a pair of MC hammer pants on a very tall person could easily beat 106

    As the former holder of this record, I begrudgingly congratulate Shaun on his feat. That said, I also question the pants. I wore a pair of relatively tight-fitting corduroys. Shaun is wearing a pair of loose-fitting drawstring track pants, clearly worn only in the interest of fitting extra bananas.

  • Is that a banana in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

    This record is awesome, and as a 5'9" individual, I feel that it's completely fair for a record holder to take advantage of his height. What would the NBA be if we made height specific classifications for say, positions, or height based divisions.

    Interesting suggestion. How would we create such classifications? marcswilson, want to take the lead on this initiative?

    This record makes me smile.

    Similar to weighlifting, there outta be height divisions for this record!!! Dan is 7 feet tall!!!!!
