Watch a Sommelier Balance a Record 51 Wine Glasses

On Saturday, a British sommelier set a new world record for wine glass balancing, which is totally a real thing. Here's the video from the Hilton Beijing Food & Wine Experience, where wine consultant Philip Osenton absolutely shattered the 2007 wine glass balancing record of 39 glasses. The Drinks Business reports that Osenton successfully managed to hold 45 glasses on his first try and 51 in the end — and pointed out that the glasses used in the competition were not ideal. Osenton says, "If I could find the perfect glass, I think I could do a few more."
