An Iraqi man has beaten the Guinness World Record for the tallest stack of M&M's with a grand total of seven.

Ibrahim Sadeq beat the previous record of six that Brendan Kelbie managed last October, according to Guinness World Records.

"I am using a mix of mind and body focus but people usually define it as a gravity defying act," Sadeq told Guinness.

Sadeq completed the stack in no less than two minutes while wearing special finger covers.

"I could possibly balance anything, but it gets really tough with light objects or liquids," he explained.

He also currently shares the Guinness World record for the most balanced eggs on the back of the hand at 18 eggs with a Jack Harris.

The previous record of six stacked M&M's was held by Kelbie and Rocco Mercurio, of Italy.

Prior to their record, Will Cutbill, used his time during the Covid-19 pandemic to stack five M&M's.

"When I tell 'em it's a whopping five, they're shocked," Cutbill boasted to CNN last June. "They want to give it a go, try and beat me."
