A New Record
Kazuhiro Watanabe wanted to get into the Guinness World Record book really bad. He has been working at it for 15 long years. He is a Japanese fashion designer and he has been awarded the Worlds Record for the tallest Mohawk. His Mohawk sticks straight up into the heavens and measured out at 3 feet 8 inches high. Kazuhiro is 40 years old. He says it takes him two hours a day to get his Mohawk in place. He uses one container of gel and three cans of hairspray to get it to stay. Mr. Watanabe has already held the title for the tallest Mohawk in the world since October 2011. I suppose he will continue to hold it. I wonder how high he will be able to get it before gravity pulls it back to earth.
