    Following extended dialogue with the team at Stride today, we need to provide clarity about what a "tie" is. We were incorrect in believing that any category in which two or more people submit the same approved value is counted as a "tie." A "tie" only happens when two or more people submit EXACTLY THE SAME VALUE at EXACTLY THE SAME TIME.

    For this category and all others in which there are ties, the FIRST entrant to submit an approved value will be recognized as the winner. Later attempts which match that value will be recognized as DENIED attempts. This stays in line with our existing RecordSetter policy, in which you need to BEAT an existing record in order to gain world record recognition.

    We are incredibly sorry for the confusion on this issue. It's an unfortunate situation, and one we feel badly about. As a token of our apology, we will send a RecordSetter t-shirt and a copy of The RecordSetter Book of World Records to all of those affected directly by this issue.

    I don't have enough cans today. But, it's my birthday so i expect money in the mail xD If so, i'll give that idea a try.

    ok so i suck at this one and im not sure if you can even do this but i came up with am idea that does not go against the rules "one record attempter must shake all cans" so what i did was i placed all he cans in a bucket and i dumped them all in another bucket and started opening them but i really suck at this and could only get 10 sodas so i give up on this one. is this allowed? if so i say try it to neil and vernon and any anyone else.

    Vernon we didn't count the 4 cans you did not shake. At 0:51 (left hand),1:07, 1:14, 1:15. Still a great attempt.

    In my opinion, the spray is not the problem. What I see doubtful here is the "shaking" part. Trevor Cummings' way of "shaking" where he just raised the can up, put it down and open the tab was denied and that was exactly the way Neil did for his last four attempts. Andy's attempt of shaking and spraying the can was clear, so is Neil's shaking and spraying of his first 20 cans

    Hey, this is Andy, Just wanted to say thanks to Brian, Doug, Ma-Ann, Emily, Schuyler, and Rob and a special thanks to my wife Crystal for all the kind words and support you all had to say towards me and my records. This was the first record i'd done in about 3 months and man did it really stir up some drama! I was at work when biggest part of this was going on. So once again thanks to everyone who had something kind or showed some kind of support towards myself, my wife and my records. Also Congrats to Neil for getting this record back, way to hang in there with it and bounce back, awesome job!

    Yes, the last four attempts seem to be off. See denied attempt by Trevor Cummings. You shook the last four cans the way he did.

    What I meant to say which didn't seem clear in my last comment is that I'm leaning towards Neil on this latest attempt to reconsider or open the discussion on why 20 is the accepted total and not 24. Neil's last attempt of 16 was pretty comfortably and solidly presented (well done), Andy's 18 might have suffered from the lighting not demonstrating the spray as well, and this latest is an evolution of technique based on Andy's attempt. Andy receiving the benefit of respect which is deserved (welcome back!) should also pass on to Neil who has far and beyond demonstrated clear evidence, skill and technique without malicious intent throughout the last 2 months of this campaign - the technique used was similar to Andy's so I guess is a question of what's acceptable as "spray"... Maybe Neil it might have sealed these last few better if you showed a good close up of the resulting spray...

    The competition, criteria and specifics of these records are so intense. You'd need pretty tough skin to cope with the flack you're all getting but love that the competition is continuing and you try again. I reckon Neil your latest attempt is pretty solid and you probably could have got another one or so in there at the end before time.

    On viewing this attempt initially I felt the last 4 of the 24 total were borderline in that they were stumbled through and produced little spray so the final 20 tally seemed fair - but looking at Andy's attempt, the spray from some of those opens are as borderline or similar and so I'd reconsider these last four cans. They fall over and you can see the bubbled soda coming out, they just don't have the initial "pop"... any thoughts?

    Love that you keep fighting back and holding these categories Neil, would love to see your creativity and style outside of this competition when it's all over.

    Thanks Ma-Ann.. I just felt like I needed to get that off my chest. Andy loves doing records and yes he was here before the money was and he thought it would be fun trying to do the record..So again thanks for all the support so many has shown him..

  • response to previous attempt Philippines Ma-Ann P.

    Alyjha. Doesn't matter. What I'm trying to say is Andy has been here long before money was involved. He enjoys the spirit of setting records. Crystal very well said it. I rest my case

    What does it matter what his records are with.. and they are not all with ketchup.. It is ridiculous to come on here and try to put people down or anything like that because of records they do. People have there own unigue way of doing things not everyone has the same talent. So yeah some of his records are a little crazy but hey that's just his personality and being his wife I absoultely love him for that and wouldn't change it for the world.. everyone else on here thanks for all the comments and I just want to say that I love to get on here and just look at some of the records people set some are funny and make me smile others are serious and I just love Record Setter but Andy or myself don't get on here to put people down we get on here because this is something fun to do. We are not upset with anyone but please if you don't have nothing nice to say just don't say anything... To me this Record Setter site is a way for people to show their talent and like I said earlier not everyone has the same talent.. And so everyone has the right to their own records...And yes it is fun to try and break records but people do take it to extremes sometimes. So anyway thanks for the comments and we wish everyone the best with all their record attempts...Thanks for the apologie Neil..God Bless you all and have a wonderful day..

    ma-ann all of his records are with ketchup

    Yeah after doing this record again I realized that barely shaking them can cause an enormous spray. I'd like to apologize for questioning Andy in his attempt

  • response to previous attempt Philippines Ma-Ann P.

    Ma-Ann P.

    Andy's been with RecordSetter for quite some time and he's done a lot of records, like Brian, I don't think that he would tarnish his reputation by cheating. Those cans were full and like what Doug mentioned, getting the tab off is enough to cause a spray

  • response to previous attempt United States Alyjha Williams

    Alyjha Williams

    well if he didnt shake them hard how do you explain some of the cans exploding

  • response to previous attempt Philippines Ma-Ann P.

    Ma-Ann P.

    I second Brian and Doug. I didn't see anything wrong with it. It seems that Andy didn't shake the cans hard but nevertheless, he still shook them

  • response to previous attempt Canada Doug McManaman

    Cant see anything wrong with this record the act of picking can up and getting tab off is enough to cause a spray. good job Andy

    The last 3 cans he opens aren't shaken at all yet they spray fountains.... very suspect...

  • response to previous attempt United States Crystal Pelphrey

    Crystal Pelphrey

    First of all the video seems to be slow on here and I don't know why, second the criteria does not state that you have to shake the cans vigorously...he does shake all the cans you have to watch it closely... we have no reason to lie that is just ridiculous...but seriously when the video is not slow and goes at the right speed. he does shake all the cans...Thank you

  • response to previous attempt United States Neil Moallem

    Neil Moallem

    How was this accepted? For several of the cans he opened them without shaking them and yet they still sprayed, proving that he must have shaken them before the recording began! It's quite blatant if you ask me
