Meet the man with the world's biggest 'guns'

And what about the world’s biggest mohawk, tallest dog and person with the most Hello Kitty memorabilia? They’re all in this year’s book of Guinness World Records.

HOW MANY CANS of hairspray does it take to create the world’s tallest mohawk?

According to 40-year-old Kazuhiro Watanabe, who has just made it into the Guinness World Records with the tallest mohawk in the world, it takes two hours, one can of gel and three cans of hairspray – plus the help of more than one stylist.

The fashion designer from Tokyo said he grew his 3foot, 8.6 inch hairdo to rebel against the conformity of Japanese society.

Watanabe is one of the many people featured in the newest version of the Guinness World Records book, which has just been released.

The book also features Moustafa Adel Ismail, who has the world’s largest upper-arm circumference- or ‘guns’, which make him bear more than a little resemblance to a certain Popeye.
