According to the BBC, Ebere lost some of his vision trying to break the record. He suffered with headaches, puffy eyes and a swollen face before going partially blind for 45 minutes. So scary!

Ebere claims to be a comedian on his social media handles. He told his followers about the challenge and asked them to “send their troubles” under the username @237_towncryer on TikTok. “Send me your troubles, I’ll cry for you,” he wrote as per NY Breaking. In the video on TikTok, he sat next to a live timer that showed 2 hours and 7 minutes.
