Twinkie Breaks A World Record (And Has The Time Of Her Life)

We have to admit that, for us at least, the Guinness Book of World Records lost much of its appeal when we turned 10. From time to time, however, we come across a cool vid that is just impossible to resist.

Like our vid of the day today.

It features a very agile Jack Russell terrier by the name of Twinkie who breaks the Guinness World Record for the quickest bursting of 100 balloons.

The idea is a very simple one – they have a 10 by 10 “field” of balloons and a lively Jack Russell bent on popping them all.

Once she is signaled to start popping, Twinkie turns into this berserker popping machine that goes through all the balloons in 39.08 seconds.

You can see her feat here.

The video also shows the previous record holder, a British pooch called Cally who popped 100 balloons in 41.67 seconds last year.

Perhaps the most interesting piece of information we learn during the vid is that Twinkie’s mom Anastasia actually held this very record for 10 years, between 2005 and 2015, before the aforementioned British pooch took over.

In fact, you might say that Twinkie simply brought the record back to the family.

Once you get tired of Twinkie’s joyous record-breaking, why not enjoy the tune that started playing in our minds the moment we saw all those balloons?
