JOHNNY GETS HIS WINGS.

Johnny pulled a Cessna 172-P aircraft weighing in at a whopping 677.8kg (1494.5lbs, 23912oz) for over 66 feet using nothing more than carabiners hooked through the piercings in his ears.

 

After setting this record Johnny became the only person ever to hold both the record for ‘the heaviest weight lifted by pierced ears’ and ‘The heaviest weight pulled by pierced ears’ at the same time. This record was featured in the Guinness Book of Records 2017.

 

 

 

 

INSIDE THE GLOBE.

 

In 2014 Johnny Strange became the first person in the world to attempt sword swallowing inside the Globe of Death while having a motorbike ridden around him.

 

While in Brussels, Belgium, Johnny stood in the centre of a 5 metre steel mesh ball and slid a sword down his oesophagus as stunt rider Vesko Lesev performed motorbike acrobatics around him, travelling in excess of 40mph (70km/h).

 

Footage of this performance can be seen on the Videos Page.


 

 

 

A SMASHING JOB.

 

Johnny Strange broke the Guinness World Record for ‘The fastest time to break 16 concrete blocks on the body’. The stunt required single blocks to be placed one at a time onto somebody’s stomach they then had to be broken by being struck with a sledgehammer. Johnny used a 15-pound sledgehammer to smash each concrete block, without injuring the person underneath, leaving zero room for error.

 

Johnny managed to smash all 16 concrete blocks in a record breaking 30.4 seconds which earned him entry into the 2016 Guinness Book of Records.
