Known in his native New Zealand as a heavyweight kickboxer, professional wrestler and mixed martial artist, Reuben de Jong has had a career-long winning streak.
Unfortunately for de Jong, that string of record-breaking success stories came to an abrupt -- and very public -- end when the strongman failed to break his own Guinness World Record for
running through the most panes of safety glass in under one minute.
In 2009, de Jong broke a whopping 15 panes of tempered glass in just one minute, but his new attempt at 17 panes of glass (featured on what appears to be a Chinese stunt program) fails, causing the host to speculate whether the day's temperature was too cold or the quality of the glass too good. Footage of the televised blunder has since gone viral.
