Odell Beckham Jr. Just Set A Guinness World Record, And It's Pretty Fitting

Let's give him a hand.

On Thursday, the New York Giants' Odell Beckham Jr., whose one-hand touchdown grab became a highlight must-see, set the Guinness World Record for one-handed catches in a minute.

We're not sure what's more newsworthy: that Beckham flawlessly caught 33 passes from New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees or that this record now exists. One of Beckham's teammates seemed to agree.

ESPN filmed the officiated stunt in Scottsdale, Arizona, amid the Super Bowl buildup to Sunday's game. To count as a catch in this newly established Guinness category, the ball had to travel at least 10 yards.

Beckham was pretty pumped about the achievement. "The type of person I am, I love breaking records, no matter what it is," Beckham told ESPN.

The attempt was based on a VISA commercial that featured Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald catching balls with one hand while holding a cell phone in the other. Fitzgerald tweeted his congrats -- and a challenge.

Congrats, Odell. We really have to hand it to you.
