A bearded bloke officially has the loudest burp on the planet after he smashed one of the strangest Guinness World Records.
Neville Sharp from Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia, has broken record for a male's noisiest belch after the previous champ kept it for over a decade.
His 112.4 decibels (db) loud burp boasted a bigger sound coming from the burp than the average electric drill or trombone.
Neville said that he was "more than excited" after finally breaking the record. The previous record breaker, Paul Hunn, set the longstanding record of 109.9 db 12 years ago.
Like most children, Neville was taught how to burp by his older sibling.
In this case, his sister, Sandie Hunt taught Neville at age six, a skill Neville has been honing ever since.
And forty-five years later, Neville decided to put his belching abilities to the test and attempt snatching the official Guinness World Record.
This was partly due to his wife, KP, who has coached Neville for over ten years, insisting he attempt the record to show off his talent.

His biggest obstacle in the run up to the attempt was getting all the necessary equipment to correctly measure his emission.
In the end, his attempt was carried out at a studio that was acoustically dampened to ensure an accurate decibel reading.
"My reason for attempting to break this record was to be a world record holder. The secondary reason was because the world record has been held by an Englishman for over 10 years," Neville said.
