Breaking the Record on ‘Katie’

Katie's Take

You can’t have Dan Cortese, host of "Guinness World Records Gone Wild" on set without a little record-breaking.

The series allows ordinary people to become extraordinary by giving them the opportunity to break world records. Stuart Claxton, the primary "Guinness Book of World Records" adjudicator was on set as well to make sure there was no funny business.

We all know someone who has a dream of setting some type of world record, and today, two of Katie’s guests are giving it a go.

First up is Raymond Butler who will be attempting to do a backflip – and land into a pair of sweatpants.

“How did you get the crazy idea to do this, Ray?” Katie asked.

It turns out it's life imitating art -- he got the idea after watching a commercial for pants.

“Do you ever get tired of seeing stunts like this?” Katie asked Dan.

“It beats working for a living. It’s so much fun.” Dan replied.

Next up, Briana Messerschmidt who is attempting to set the Guinness World Record for the most shoes removed by a dog in one minute.

Well actually this record really belongs to her dog Lilu -– who holds another record.

“She can take off the most amount of socks,” Briana said, “She took off 20 socks in 50 seconds.”

Will Lilu beat her record of sock stealing, but this time with shoes? Will Raymond make it, or will his efforts fall flat?

See for yourself in the video above.
