    Good work Will Perrins! BUT one thing i have a problem with is that you took the tabs off the cans! Taking the tabs off the cans makes it alot easier to stack....but well done to you! However your record will be broken in the very near future :)

    Hey Mike we can totally build 1 bigger than 21 cans - and guess we will just have to film it for these non believers. Bit disappointed that my name is not mentioned here though bro.

    Nah mate, close to the ceiling, literally less than a cm from the ceiling though. Could of gone higher but obviously ran outta room.

    Dear Dan or Corey. If you read this there should be a stipulation about if you can have the soda tabs kept on or taken off. The reason I say this I also did 18 cans but I stacked over 20 plus cans taking the soda can tabs off the cans. The tabs make the balance harder if they stay on. When you take the tabs off you have a smoother surface & can balance a lot more cans P.S I am submitting the longest time to balance 12 opened soda cans tower on my chin . This one is was more difficult than I expected it to be.

    Yes you have the option to submit video and most people have access to a camera. Photos are too easily manipulated.

    I now am going to balance 12 unopened soda cans on my chin for the longest time!

    Looks legit, but I wish it was on video like the previous record holder. Should we add criteria to say this category must be shot on video? Liam, would you attempt again on video?

  • I actually created a 14 can tower no glue and empty but i submited it one day after these guys. it was difficult but it can be accomplished

    I agree with you both. Furthermore, with a video we can be sure the cans are empty as indicated in the criteria. Some of these taller towers looks suspicious.

    I agree with blacklight. Moving forward, I'd like to propose that video documentation be a requirement for this category. Feels to easy to cheat.

    should be a video, he could have glued it or something
