Stride’s setting 100 records in 100 days. At the end of 100 days, we’ll verify if you are the standing Record Holder. If you are, you’ll get $500 for each record you managed to hold with your guile, talent, and sheer will.

General caution and common sense required. We show the Stride Team at work, but recommend that these challenges be done at home.

 - must show both pillows at beginning or end of attempt

    I thought if there was a problem with music, they would just mute the video, not deny the attempt. Y'all are getting too snippy about these trifling details. Having music isn't causal of her attempt, so turn your sound off and let it be.

    In Lindsey's Video there is definitely music in the background which is definitely against the rules. It clearly says that no copyrighted material may be allowed in the video and several other videos have been denied because of that exact reason. For fairness reasons you must treat this video as you have others. Otherwise, it is discriminatory. (On the other hand, great music choice. Lol)

    No, not expert, haha, but I do hoop-dance for fun. I'm about to try the watermelon one, the two person one is tough though... My friend (who is a hooper also) and I tried it to no avail, unless we use a giant hoop, which is against the rules. :(

    Mike, your attempt was denied because at the beginning of the attempt you touched your shirt, which is against the rules for this challenge.

    why was my attempt denied?

  • response to previous attempt United States Rob Birdsong

    Hi Cody, we had to deny your attempt because you were touching your shirt and holding the pillows in your shirt with your faorearm. Its a violation of the " - may not touch shirt once attempt has begun" piece of criteria. Try this again, without touching the shirt and we will be happy to review

    It should be encouraged for any future attempts that the pillows be shown either at the beginning or probably better at the end for proof.

    Don't want to add fuel to the fire but I think this record should still stand if the only reason for failing is because the pillows weren't seen being stuffed - so the first attempt from the Stride Marketers should be failed or reposted as they set the example of what is acceptable evidence and didn't show it themselves.

    Hi Dayton, if you could re-submit this record and show yourself placing the pillows in the t-shirt prior to the record I think everyone would feel a lot better about your attempt. Otherwise,I applaud your creativity with the neck-approach.
