Man Sets World Record for Wearing Ties




Two Cleveland men attempted to set world records last night. One was successful, one was not.

We'll get to the unsuccessful voyage later, but for now bear witness to 19 Action News meteorologist Jason Handman and a world record 131 ties around his neck.

Sure, why not.

The previous record was 50.

It took Jason 2.5 hours to complete the feat, and Tim Misny and Zack Reed were in attendance as official witnesses, which makes sense because if you're going to set a world record, you definitely want Tim Misny there to enjoy it with you.
