Other records on this site that existed at the time this one was submitted:
"Most Ice Cream Sandwiches Given Away While Jumping No Handed On A Pogo Stick"
"Most Times Getting A Mattress World Employee To Say "Mattress" On A Phone Call"
"Most Money Placed On An Electronic Chessboard"
This site was pretty fake already. :)
The volunteer from the audience is a longtime friend (a retired university math professor who's mentored me intellectually and spiritually since before my teenage years, actually). My father isn't in the video. I'm sure he'd be flattered to know that our relationship is comparable to that between a father and son, though! ;)
As a certified amateur magician myself, I look forward to seeing you break this record. If not for the glory of having a word record, do it for the sake of improving the quality of the records on this site. Certainly, the classic "producing coins from behind someone's ear" plot is one of the more amusing magic-related RecordSetter records. :)
When you see a record that doesn't impress you, do what I did: grab yourself a camera and beat that record! :D
Seriously. My first world record on this site was the one for Fastest Othello Game. I knew for a long time that it could be beaten easily just by playing the "fool's mate" of Othello (9 moves) rather than the 60-move game the original record setters did, so I finally got my iPhone camera and found someone with an Othello game who was willing to help, and we destroyed that record together. It shouldn't be too hard to find someone who's willing to have coins produced from their ears. :)
It seemed I mistyped the word; it should be ERR (YE/ER). Other words will probably work, as well.
