The 2023 Guinness World Records book has added a man for an eye-popping new record.
A Brazilian man identified as Sidney de Carvalho Mesquita can shove his eyes 1.8cm out of their sockets using his facial muscles, as officially recorded by an optometrist.
Sidney uncovered his strange biological condition at the young age of nine and has always loved displaying his eye-popping talent to his family and friends.
Not until this year, Mr. Mesquita officially registered the talent.
When an optometrist measured his eye protrusion using a device known as an optometer, his record was confirmed in Brazil’s Sao Paulo on January 10, 2022.
The Guinness World Records asserted that he broke the 2007 record of 1.2cm.
Following the history he made, Mr. Mesquita said he was dazed to learn the news of breaking the record and had never felt “so much happiness, pure excitement mixed with elation and ecstasy.”
When Sidney pops his eyes while impersonating Uncle Fester from The Addams Family, he briefly loses eyesight and describes the experience as “letting go of part of my body.”
However, since he is able to venture his bizarre talent in both personal and professional ways, he hopes to become popular for his talents across the globe and not just in Brazil.
