Venice, California, United States / February 22, 2009

Debbie Hampton raises the bar of hushing community by performing a 36.78 second quot;shh,quot; a new world record. Hampton destroyed Ian Kalman’s previous record by over nine seconds.

The feat was perfomed in Hampton’s Venice, California home. Van Neil Hampton and Daisy Jane Hampton were present to witness the record.


- "shh" must be audible for duration of attempt

    We all come across situations where we want the PC to get help with file explorer in windows 10. Unfortunately, there are default applications which can do the job.

    Ok Jovah, You are JUST EXHALING! In my opinion it does not break the older shh record.

    Surely, the finger over my lips makes up for that. ;) But seriously, I agree with you. I think the noise that differentiates a 'shh' from a whistle/exhale is the speed at which your breath is expelled. So since this is a duration-type record, the 'shh' is being reduced to less and less. All that I can say is, I tried my best to be legit about it. :/

    It's difficult to say if this utterance really qualifies as a "shh." There is a distinct whistling sound which shouldn't be possible in the voiceless postveolar fricative /ʃ/ phoneme.

  • come on, this isn't Shhh - its nothing.

  • Why do you shh! all day?

  • the record may have been broken but it's my fav "shh" record, then it's 12/8/08 and 8/30/08, respectively.
