Chefs in Yekaterinburg, Russia constructed a roll of sushi that measured 2.521 kilometers, 74 centimeters long (over a mile and a half). While the record has not yet been confirmed by Guinness, the roll beats out the previously world record of 2.033 kilometers set by the Council of Japanese Postal Workers’ Union in 2007.

The roll was created by sixty chefs, took 15 hours to construct, and used 1.5 tons of rice, 23 kilograms of sesame seeds, and nearly 500 kilograms of cucumbers. And before you even start, of course the Russians built the world's longest sushi roll. You didn't think it was some college students in Massachusetts, did you? Below, a video.
