Takeru Kobayashi Eats 16 Bananas in Under a Minute

Below, a video of competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi eating 16 bananas in under a minute at the Rio-Can Centre in Toronto as part of the launch for Nintendo's Donkey Kong Country Returns. Does it still count as competitive eating if you're not competing against anyone? (Technically, he had to eat a percentage of the bananas a player scored in the game under one minute, so we guess he was competing against Donkey Kong himself?) Anyway, Kobi had the bananas peeled before he started and didn't quite finish chewing before the timer goes off, but it's still pretty impressive.
