    Did this balloon reach the required length of 20 cm (7.87 inches) before popping? What do people think?

    That was very amazing

    Very impressive indeed, my personal record was 17.5 seconds, and what I found challenging was keeping the neck of the balloon from slipping out of my mouth; as the neck shorten as the balloon gets bigger.

    And my other attempts the balloon just kept getting bigger, and I kept thinking,"pop you bastard, pop," kudos to a job well done - I've still got my eye on this one. ;)

  • just finished watching it for the 40th time. stunning

  • Simply amazing.
