EUROPE (NBC/RTV) — The latest Guinness World Records book is here, with a host of new record-holders. Guinness World Records 2015, the 60th Anniversary edition book, features a host of weird and wonderful record-breakers.
That includes 49-year-old Karsten Maas from Denmark, who created the World’s Longest Usable Golf Club, which measures 14 ½ feet in length and has been used to drive a ball a distance of more than 540 feet.
“When other golfers see it, they are looking a lot and thinking if that at all is possible to hit with a club like this, but it is. And it’s funny, and so it has to be,” said Maas.
Meanwhile in England, part-time inventor Yannick Noah has built the World’s Smallest Caravan. The vehicle, named the “QTVan,” is fully roadworthy. Although it measures nearly 8 feet in length, 5 feet high and nearly 3 feet wide, it still has a full-size bed, TV, sink and teapot.
The latest Guinness World Records book also marks its 60th anniversary by exploring the changes in record-breaking that have happened over the past six decades. The book is in stores Thursday.
