112.4 decibels. Neville Sharp. England. NEW World Record Holder for loudest belch.
(It looks like he did it in a Radio Station to boot)
Neville Sharp's belch clocked in at 112.4 decibels!
— Guinness World Records (@GWR) December 4, 2021
BBC: Neville Sharp’s mighty belch was registered at a massive 112.4 decibels – that’s louder than the average electric drill or trombone!
It also broke the previous world record which had stood for over a decade.
After the attempt Neville said that he was “more than excited” that he’d finally broken the record.
Neville said he first starting burping after his older sister taught him how to burp – and that he’s been perfecting his skill ever since!
His wife insisted that he should attempt to break the record in order to show off his unique talent.
That’s why he finally decided to put his belching abilities to the test and attempt the official Guinness World Records title for the loudest male burp.
Neville spent the past five years preparing for the event in order to perfect the strength and noise level of his belch.
“My reason for attempting to break this record was to be a world record holder,” he added.
Let’s hear it for the early intro to burping by Neville’s big sister. That’s the role of a big brother or father so it’s nice to see some diversity.
People love being recognized for anything. The older we get the less we care about what recognition is for.
A big win at penny bingo being recognized in the group home daily newsletter? Huge.
Attending a school assembly to accept a fruit basket for being the top donor of aluminum to the pop-can-tabs-for wheelchairs at your grandkid’s school? Legend status.
Neville reached the top of the mountain with this 112.4-decibel burp. Jumbo jets clock in at 120 decibels and anything above 85 can permanently damage your hearing.
Neville gets nothing other than a plaque and a personal visit from the Guinness guy which is also great, but the real prize is knowing he finally amounted to something in his 40’s.
No one can do what Neville does and he fucking KNOWS it.
Atta boy, Neville. Fuck the haters. You’re the best and everyone else can suck it.
