June 28 (UPI) -- A man in India set a new world record by balancing a spinning basketball on a toothbrush in his mouth for nearly a minute.
Sandeep Singh, a 25-year-old from Punjab, broke the Guinness World Record for "Longest duration spinning a basketball on a toothbrush" by balancing the ball on the brush for 53 seconds.
"It was my dream to break a world record," Singh said.
He performed the attempt in front of a crowd in his hometown, where he began by spinning the ball on his finger before transferring it to the toothbrush.
Once the ball was on the toothbrush he leaned his head to the side and placed the bristles in his mouth as the ball continued to spin.
The ball began to wobble and eventually fell after almost a minute, but Singh's attempt was almost nine times longer than the previous record of 6.84 seconds.
