Josh Cottreau, frontman for Australian punk band Fangz, may never take a dump again. Cottreau claims to have eaten 143 boiled eggs, which would break the former Guinness World Record of 141 originally set by competitive eating champ Joey Chestnut.

So why the hell would Cottreau put himself through this? Because punk rock isn’t exactly etching his name into the halls of time. “After many attempts at releasing music to leave our mark on the world, we had the idea to try and cement our legacy in the Guinness Book of World Records,” said Cottreau. “We had to choose a record and it took us months to find the correct one.”

“It was late one evening and the 1967 prison drama Cool Hand Luke was on free-to-air TV. Paul Newman (the salad dressing guy) attempted to eat 50 hard-boiled eggs in one sitting and I thought ‘yeah, I could do heaps more.’ Fast forward to the present day and I’m now a world record holder. The day after filming, we flew to [Brisbane] and the smell on the luxury Virgin aircraft was horrendous.”
