World record for watching telly now a Dutch record


Last weekend, the world record for watching television was broken by Efraim van Oeverenzondag, a 28-year-old student from Tilburg. He watched a whopping 86 hours of television in the building of media archive Beeld en Geluid in Hilversum and he only got 45 minutes of sleep. Since April of this year, the world record for watching television was held at 80 hours by a man from New Delhi.



  1. Shame on those who call folks who participate in extended television watching couch potatoes. This is real accomplishment. What other notable world records are held by Dutchmen?

    (…is that a proper expression, Ductchmen?)
