Super impressive, congratulations!
I agree with Suresh. What we refer to as a "softball" isn't just a squishy ball. It's a hard ball used in the sport of softball: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Softball (Confusing, I know.) We will take Mark's record and create a new category, replacing "Softball" with "Sponge Ball" in the title.
Congratulations, Dinesh! I'm amazed you did nearly twice my record.
Dear Watermelon Explosion Contestants,
Wow, what a competition. It was such a thrill watching techniques discussed, rubber bands wrapped, and, most of all, watermelons exploded.
First off, the winner of the Apple Watch is current world record holder Justin Landers. He and his family bravely stepped up, donned safety glasses and magnificently pushed the limits of human achievement. Well done, Landers family!
Choosing the winner of the Spectacular Explosion was much, much more difficult. We were awed by all the explosions, Cordell Pacheco's slo-mo explosion especially. That said, we've decided to award the iPad Mini to Mark Owens for his 150 rubber band video. The fact that he attempted the record in a GLASS HOUSE and that it exploded DIRECTLY IN HIS FACE make Mark an extremely brave and worthy victor.
Thanks and congrats to all of you who participated for being part of this amazing project. We're currently editing a video that features all of you, and promise to share it soon.
We'll contact the winners directly to arrange prize delivery. Stay tuned for the next Challenge!
Yours in world records,
We will announce winners and contact them tomorrow, stay tuned!
