Most bra’s unhooked in one minute
26th October 2013, Ireland (Skibbereen)
While the task of trying to unhook a bra often results in fumbling fingers and first of all embarrassed expressions for most men. Wish we could say the same for Sean Murray. The Irishman’s fast hands resulted in him setting the new world record for the most bras unhooked in a minute, in Cork, Ireland, in 2013. Murray managed to unhook an incredible 91 bras in just 60 seconds; hence, that’s one bra every 0.66 seconds!
