This Pakistani teenager can pop his eyes out for one minute
Bizarre visuals show a talented Pakistani teenager popping-out his own eyeballs for one minute.
Ahmed Khan, 16, claims he can pop his eyes out beyond eye sockets by over 12 mm and insists it doesn’t cause him any harm.
The schoolboy from Lahore, the capital city of Pakistan’s Punjab province, discovered he possesses the bizarre eye-popping talent in 2016.
Ahmed explained: “One day I was home and watching the famous cartoon show – Tom and Jerry – and saw Tom’s eyes coming out from his sockets after Jerry hit him on his back.
“I touched my eyes and the eyeball popped out. Initially, I thought I had damaged my eye but then I realised it did not cause any harm to my eyes.”
Ahmed found it wasn’t a fluke and he can do his trick with both eyes.
He said: “I tried popping the other eye out and I was successful. This seemed fun and after trying a couple of times I got used to it.”
Ahmed’s eye popping videos made him an instant hit on social media sites in Pakistan.
He says: “I’ve been interviewed by several TV channels after my eye-popping videos went viral on social media.
“This unique talent made me very famous across the country.
“Whenever I go to market or for outing with family or friends, people come and click selfies with me.”
However, there are many kids and girls in his school who are scared of him because of this unique talent.
He added: “Many younger kids in school run away when they see me. They are scared of my eye popping.
“Even the girls in school get scared. They think that my eyes will fall out into my hands or something.”
Ahmed claims that the trick has never hurt him and he has not visited any ophthalmologist for his vision.
He said: “I have never visited an ophthalmologist for my vision. God has given me this talent so I am sure he would take care of my eyes too.
“Only when I do the eye stunts for long, my eyes become a little watery but otherwise I have no problems in popping my eyes out.”
Ahmed is now ‘eyeing’ a place in the record books.
“I was told by my friends about Guinness Book of World Records. That day it became my aim to break the record,” he said.
The record for popping eyeballs to the maximum currently belongs to Kim Goodman from the US who can pop her eyes out of her eye sockets by 12mm.
“My eye popping is way better than the American woman who owns the record and I can break her record anytime. I just want the officials to come and record my video for the world record attempt,” he added.
