Launched two years ago, URDB World Records has quickly grown to prominence thanks to sold-out events across the country, a popular recurring segment on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and nearly 6,000 records sent in from 40+ countries around the globe.

"Our events are known for individual heroism, group participation, hilarity, surprise and all-around general chaos," says URDB co-founder and event host Dan Rollman. "We've seen everything from the world's tallest carrot cake to 12 women standing on top of a man rolled up in a carpet."
