Guinness World Records has confirmed that a world record has been set for the fastest time to drink two liters of soda. The record was set by a Youtuber who has a channel where, appropriately enough, he drinks various amounts and types of soda as fast as he can.
Eric “Badlands” Booker set the world record after chugging a two–liter container in just 18.45 seconds. The record was recently confirmed by the Guinness World Records blog.
Booker, who is also a rapper, actually drank the soda (a sugar-free cola) back in May in Seldan, New York. He actually drank the soda out of a jar with the measurements labeled on the side, as opposed to a regular two-liter bottle.
Not surprisingly, after chugging that much soda, Booker apparently let out a massive burp.
Aside from soda, Booker takes on various eating challenges on his channel. He’s also a competitive eater and is ranked 23rd in the Major League Eating’s rankings.
According to Guinness, there are still several other drinking-related records that Booker could also attempt to break. Just this year, a man in Germany set a new record for the fastest time to drink a Capri Sun after downing one of the packets in just 14.30 seconds.
Last year, a man in Wisconsin drank a liter of gravy in 38.22 seconds, earning himself a world record. Another New Yorker set the record for drinking a bottle of syrup in 10.84 seconds in 2017.
