While this specific record might seem like one of those obscure world records most would laugh about, it’s actually one of the most incredible. While building stuff is not exactly record-worthy, usually people use materials like wood, stone, cement, or something in this family. But not Canadian artist, Von Wong. He used 168,037 straws to create a 10-foot tall structure in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He was moved to do this as a way of raising awareness about single-use plastics. Yet it landed him in the Guinness World Records. We appreciate the decision to raise a very real environmental issue. Respect, Mr. Wong.
