Georgia Man Sets New 'Spoon' Record

Posted By on Mon, Dec 30, 2013 at 1:01 PM

We are all excel at something, but Etibar Elchyev "sticks" to what he's good at.

The 41 year-old former Georgia kick-boxing coach set a new world record on Saturday by using his ability to attract metal substances to his skin.

Elchyev broke his previous record by sticking 53 spoons to his chest and back.

The "Spoon Man" says that he still has a couple of tricks up his sleeve.

"When the time comes I am going (to move) an airplane, then an empty train carriage, something like this, I won't reveal all my cards at once."

Now I'm going to have Soundgarden's Spoonman stuck in my head.
