The Super Bowl brought us many moments of triumph. The Ravens' Jacoby Jones broke a Super Bowl record for the longest kickoff return. Beyonce's incredible performance blew us away and shut the stadium down for 30 minutes.

But one of the moments that may have gone unnoticed was a true testament to talent and dedication.

Competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi scarfed down an entire Domino's pizza in under 60 seconds at some bro's Super Bowl party. The infamous hot-dog eater was booked through his booking agency and was paid $3,250 for the spectacle,Deadspin reports.

According to TMZ, Kobayashi was attempting to break his previous world record for inhaling a 12-inch pizza in 1 minute and 9.36 seconds. He was able to surpass his former record with a new time of 60 seconds flat, however the event was unofficial and it won't count.

Afterwards, he and the bros had a testosterone-fueled beer chugging contest. Let's just say Kobayashi got pwned.
