Everyone has been to those parties where eventually someone turns on the music and does the limbo. Well, what if we were to tell you that we have footage of someone breaking the limbo world record? However, before we get into that we would like to explain what the limbo is for those of you who don’t already know.
Limbo is a type of dance form. Initially, it was done the opposite way you would think. You see, instead of the bar being placed at the highest height and slowly lowered the limbo was meant to start at the lowest possible height and be slowly raised. This would symbolize an emergence from death into life. As it stands now, the limbo is considered to be the national dance of Trinidad and Tobago. We were kind enough to find a picture of someone doing the limbo below to give you a general idea of how the dance is performed:
Now, we are sure that a lot of our readers are aware of what the limbo is but perhaps you aren’t so familiar with the limbo world record. In fact, the limbo world record is so bizarre that you literally have to see it to believe it. First off, we want to say DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.
The man who broke the limbo world record had the bar set 5 7/8 inches off the ground. Lets put this in perspective for a moment, he limbo-ed under a bar that was just under half a foot. Of course, we can’t do the amazing feat justice with a simple picture. So, we strongly suggest you watch this video to see how amazing this feet truly is…
