May 24 (UPI) -- A Guinness World Records enthusiast earned yet another title when he used a nail to pop 200 balloons in 14.77 seconds.

David Rush, who holds more than 100 Guinness World Records titles including the most corn kernels eaten using a toothpick in three minutes, held the nail in his hand and ran along a wall adorned with inflated balloons at the new RCN Technologies headquarters in Knoxville, Tenn.


Rush, whose Guinness records are aimed at promoting STEM education, beat the previous record of 33.74 seconds to pop 200 balloons with a nail. The previous record was set by Ashrita Furman in New York in 2014.

Rush set his 100th record earlier in May when he fit 100 lit candles in his mouth and held them for 30 seconds.
