New World Record For Most Eyebrow Raises Set By Harmon Leon (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

To be fair, many world records raise eyebrows, but Harmon Leon of San Francisco has just set a record for actually raising his eyebrows -- 185 times to be exact.

But that's not the key. Leon's brow-raising record is very specific. It's for the "Most Eyebrow Raises While Listening To A Recording Of Jeff Daniels Reading The Gettysburg Address."

According to, which officially recognized Leon's record, anyone who wants to break it has to set it while listening to actor Jeff Daniels recitation of the Gettysburg Address, which takes about two minutes, 30 seconds.

As the video shows, it's not easy, especially since both eyebrows must be raised for the record to count.

For his hard work, Leon gets the pride of a job well done as well as a commemorative patch and very tired eyebrows.
