The bizarre stunt was filmed on camera as evidence of 19-year-old Raja Thapa’s claim to have the widest mouth in the world.

His effort of 138 pencils crammed into his gob beats the previous claim by an Indian, Dinesh Shivnath Upadhyaya, who managed to squeeze 92 into his mouth in one sitting.

And despite potentially smashing one record, Thapa refused to stop there, also managing to accommodate 32 lit candles between his teeth.

Thapa said: “I loved weird things. I saw some quirky records being broken in Nepal, so I wanted to do the same. I realised that I could stuff things into my mouth and that is how it all began.

“I love to entertain people and what’s wrong with these stunts. After watching some quirky records, I felt motivated to go the same way.”

Thapa, who works as security guard, now plans to do regular street shows and attempt to break more quirky world records.
