Pushing the limits of both blood circulation and neck strength, Opus
Moreschi tied a whopping 97 neckties around his neck at once, a new
universal record. The ties, which featured everything from cartoon
characters to corporate logos, weighed a combined total of 7.4 pounds.
Moreschi’s daring feat was performed on February 11, 2009 at a World
Record Appreciation Society event at Pianos, a New York City bar.
His face turned slightly purple as he set the record, forcing witnesses
Corey Henderson and Kate Sullivan to periodically check his pulse.
