Shortest High Five

The Internet


San Francisco, California, United States / April 13, 2011

Greg Harell-Edge and Dave Penndorf made a high five in which their palms started just 0.19 millimeters apart. The duo set the record as part of National High Five Day.

- palms must connect and make an audible slap sound

    I have to admit, I'm pretty ok with this record be rejected as well.

    We really appreciate you guys' help, although I have to sheepishly say a lot of the records we did we sacrificed some professionalism for humor.

    Thanks so much for everything though guys!

    i concur with alex

    Yeah, I'm going to have to go with Dan here, there's definitely not an accurate measurement nor an audible slap sound.

  • Canada Dan Rollman

    Doesn't a high five need an audible slap sound? Plus, can one really measure the width of a piece of paper? I'm a huge fan of this category, but would like to see a more professional, accurately measured attempt.
