Florida Man Sees 'Avengers: Endgame' Record Breaking 116 Times
A Florida man has successfully broken the record for the amount of time sitting on his ass … er, we mean the number of times seeing a single movie in a theater.
Agustin Alanis, 30, of Riverview, Florida, has seen ‘Avengers: Endgame’ a record-setting 116 times as of yesterday—the equivalent of over 14 days time. Alanis reportedly manages to pay for his superhero addiction by working as a supervisor for his family's construction business.
"I go twice on weekdays; Saturday and Sunday, four to five times, (which) is the most I can because of the movie being 3 hours and 2 minutes long," Alanis told CNN. "I had bought tickets to watch it five times on the opening weekend so I wouldn't miss a thing. Then, I started going every single day, posting my rounds or views because I really love the film.”
Alanis set out to break the Guinness World Record for “most cinema productions attended - same film." The former record holder was North Carolina native Anthony Mitchell who saw ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ a butt-numbing 103 times in 2018.
Throughout it all, Alanis has documented his journey on Twitter, often taking a selfie with his ticket stub and an employee as proof of his attendance. However, the dedicated cinephile’s record remains unofficial for the time being as Guinness World Records has yet to authenticate the achievement. He submitted the necessary paperwork a month ago and is waiting to hear back.
Despite having already achieved a world record by a considerable margin, Alanis doesn’t appear to be slowing down. He plans to continue seeing the film until it’s no longer in theaters.
“I might reach 200, but who knows" he said.
To that we say godspeed, young man. We wish you the world record and perhaps a girlfriend sometime in the near future.
