Chugging A Whole Liter of Gravy (World Record) | FOOD FEATS

(slurping) (coughing) – Breathing is—breathing is so hard (dramatic music) There are a lot of very obscure world records out there involving food and I'm going to search out the dumbest, the weirdest, the most insane and I'm gonna try and beat them

This is for every high school guidance counselor, every little league coach and every teen on X-Box Live who said I'd never amount to anything First up, I found a video of this guy He chugs a liter of gravy through a straw in a minute and twelve seconds I think I can beat him All right, so this guys name is Steven Ruppel

He is a chiropractor from Wausau, Wisconsin Nothing about being a chiropractor gives you a specific advantage in this Anyways, he's just dumping cans of very gelatinous Campbell's gravy into a liter beaker using a very normal straw and he's just sucking it down This guy's actually pretty quick He's got powerful sucking strokes

Here we go though He's only about nine seconds in and he's already pulled away from the straw That's what you need to avoid You need to avoid any sort of breakage in your stride (sucking) It's almost like a lamaze breathing technique in my opinion

Also, he's got a pretty firm grip on the straw which I don't think's helping him at all I'm wondering if it's his breathing that's getting obstructed, if it's his sucking muscles that are getting tired or if he's getting sick of the taste of gravy One minute, twelve point five seconds is the official time to beat Okay so this guy's a chiropractor He has no specific training in these sports whatsoever

And yes I do consider gravy chugging a sport I was a d1 athlete, hammer thrower at UCLA and if I use the athletic principles that I learned, translate that into gravy chugging and use it to beat this very average sized chiropractor from Wisconsin Okay, so we have all our equipment set out This is what a liter looks like I wish I could just shove the gravy in there and just go (slurp) Slurp it down like a giant gravy Go-Gurt, but we have to put it in a graduated cylinder to make sure it comes up exactly to the one meter line

That's what Dr Steven Ruppel did He poured the chicken gravy in there and then he microwaved it to heat it up which is going to make it a little easier 'cause it's gonna run thinner, drop that viscosity level a little bit Because if you see the cold gravy right now, which Steven Ruppel said he does not like cold gravy, hot take on that one Steve, you can see it's real gelatinous This is gonna be pretty hard to suck through a straw

Hoping it gets thinner when you warm it up, but, honestly, it tastes pretty good Some white pepper in there Not bad And then we have all our straws We have some big guys, we have some boba straws, some bendy straws, but what he uses in the video looks like just your average plain plastic straw

We're not trying to cheat this in any way I want a legitimate record, no asterisks, we're not going Barry Bonds on this one, fair and square So, I need to see what an average person can do with a liter of gravy Someone with no athletic talent Not a competitive bone in their body

I need to see what this looks like just in a vaccuum – Josh you have to warm it – What? – You have to warm– – [Josh] I'll warm it later I just need to see the flow of the gravy coming out and also this is hilarious to watch the fear in your eyes I think it's funny

– [Nicole] Josh! That's a lot more that—okay – No, no it's settling – Okay, that's–yeah It's totally settling Yeah, nice and settled – Okay, I'm going to warm this up for you

– [Nicole] Okay thank you I feel like I'm gonna throw up – You might throw up That's a distinct possibility I might throw up

We all have to be prepared for every possible outcome Are you confident about your chances to finish it? – No! – Here's your straw Just give it a little– – Do you think it's warmed in the middle? – Yeah well you just gotta stir it Oh, it's so much thicker than I thought – Oh! – Okay, we are a little bit over a liter which is good

Do you want to –you're training for the four hundred Run four hundred ten meters, go all the way through the line – Do I need to finish this? – I mean– – Look at me in the face I don't want to finish this – You don't have to finish it You just have to do the best you can and then I need to analyze what you're doing so I can figure out what I need to do

– Okay – You're like my trainer You're like Mic to my Rocky – I'm the –Oh, great – You're the Brigitte to my Ivan Drago actually

I think Steven Ruppel is probably the good guy in this scenario and I'm the bad guy – I'm totally Brigitte Nielsen (dramatic music) – [Josh] Okay, the gravy's moving (laughter) She's laughing That's a bad sign

She seems in physical discomfort She's not going fast She's already failing Nicole! Suck harder! Just really, just use your chest You got about 27 seconds left

Is your jaw locking up? It's become like a (mumbles) And one twelve you're done – I started here and I got down to there? – This actually makes me kinda nervous now – Yeah I don't know how you're gonna do this – You were consistently sucking it down – Yeah I was consistently sucking

– And the gravy wasn't moving – My recommendation is that you should train for this because considering that fact, how much I got down, I think you have some work ahead of you – So in the hammer throw, which is my main frame of reference, I get that these aren't exactly similar, but you'll do what's called overweight and underweight training So you go with the hammer that's lighter than one you'd normally throw in competition to teach yourself to keep up with the speed That's what I'm doing here

I'm just gonna see how fast I can chug a liter of water with a straw All right, let's start the clock (dramatic music) (coughing) Breathing is—beathing is so hard Oh God! Wow! How am I gonna do that when it's gravy? Oh my god! Okay, twenty seven seconds and I'm a little worried I'm not gonna lie at this point because that's water and we got gravy coming up and I mean I thought I'd do that in about fifteen seconds so yeah now I gotta try the overweight training

I'm gonna try to and chug ice cold gravy It's thicker, really work on that sucking power, see how fast I can go Hi! It's me, Josh You know, the main guy in the show you are watching right now? Before I chug all that gravy and potentially go into cardiac arrest, I'd like to ask you to subscribe to the Mythical YouTube channel If enough people subscribe, I'll be granted new food shows from the internet food gods

Make sure to click that bell for notifications and thank you for all the support Now I'm going to try and chug–this is gravy straight from the fridge You can just see it's like the consistency of jello We're gonna reset the clock I'm not gonna go full liter 'cause I need to save some for game time, but I'm gonna try and hit it with, like, a quick sprint

Quick, explosive sprint, fast out of the blocks My legs are shaking from nerves I just starting taking this really seriously It was jokes before this, but now –Okay (burps) – Oh no! – Are we still rolling? – All right (yells) Speed, fast – [Camera Man] And go! (dramatic music) (groans) – Oh it's so bad when it's cold! And I don't see it getting that much better when it's warm Also I don't know what I was timing at all

I don't know what those numbers mean That was completely pointless So I learned with the water that if I'm trying to sprint the whole way and I'm just (sucking) that I'm not gonna breathe and I'm gonna get the liquid in my nasal cavity 'cause that's what happened So with this, I learned long, strong pulls I learned the breathing technique with that

I'm as ready as I'm ever gonna be, which is sad because I'm not ready at all I'm getting worried at this point The confidence I had, all the vibrato, it was false I was overcompensating I don't know what I was talking about

(dramatic music) So as it turns out, it costs money to send an official judge out here from Guinness to ratify the records, so instead of that we have Nicole with a stopwatch And to distract from the sounds of me just slurping gravy for a minute and twelve seconds straight, we have Davin on (mumble) commentary Davin,– – Yeah – Please head to your commentary booth There's one more detail we gotta discuss so upon further video analysis, we found that Dr

Steven Ruppel was using an opaque, plastic straw That means it's gonna have a harder plastic to it, that means there's not gonna be as much flex and it won't restrict the flow as much We're gonna switch straws If you wanna cry foul in the comments, please do that If you wanna fight me in the alley outside Bob's Big Boy in Burbank, I encourage you, but this is what we're doing

(slapping) (yelling) All right, ready for this? All right, straw is in the gravy Give it a little stir All right, I'm gonna count down, three, two, one, go – Okay – Three, two, one – One liter of Campbell's chicken gravy Can Josh drink it under seventy- two seconds? He's sipping really quick He's already one hundred milliliters off

Eight hundred milliliters to go! Wow! Wow! I've never seen a man suck this fast before! That is crazy! (mumbles) seventy two seconds! Josh! You need to suck faster than that, man, if you want to break the record You gotta go way faster than that You're about four hundred milliliters off (mumbles) Let's go Josh You can do this

I believe in you You got you're headband on, you got your wrist bands on Unbelievable! (laughs) Three hundred milliliters, Josh Let's go, let's go Three hundred milliliters

You can do this You can do this Two hundred milliliters You got this You got this

You got this You're so close Seventy two seconds is the record to beat You're a chef, he is a chiropractor You got this

– [Nicole] One o seven – Oh my God! Is he gonna do it? Is he gonna do it? Two seconds? Oh my God! Oh no! You were so close! So close! – No! What as my time? What was my time (mumbles) – You were one eighteen (groans) – [Davin] Oh no! – I did all that for nothing – Sorry – It's so bad – But you know what Josh? (loud pop) – Why would you do that to me? – [Davin] That's for finishing one liter of chicken gravy

– I hate this That's still an accomplishment, man – Oh yeah, I just drank like two thousand calories and it's literally three thousand percent my daily sodium intake, I checked I'll have kidney stones now and no world record Dr

Steven Ruppel, where are you out there? Running your successful chiropractor practice, probably have a family out there who's very proud of you for the world record that you still have Honestly, I gotta give it up to you That was really difficult and this isn't done though I'm still proud of my effort I mean, we know who we are as a team

You guys did great Davin, really the star here Nicole I think we can walk away with our heads held high, but our job here is not done Not even a little bit
