San Francisco, California, United States / February 17, 2009

Displaying lung capacity not found in many smokers, Sean Farrell lit 18 cigarettes in 3 minutes, 43.56 seconds while seated one foot before an electric fan. The fan, a Vornado S2–40 model was set on high as the Lucky Strike cigarettes were lit with a drugstore lighter of unknown make and model.

Farrell set the record on February 17, 2009 at a World Record Appreciation Society[] event at the Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco, California. Dan Rollman and Debbie Hampton were present as witnesses.
