British strongman John Evans may be 74-years-old, but that hasn't kept him out of the record books. He holds dozens of Guinness World Records for balancing objects on his head, including 13 kegs of beer, two girls on bikes, and 300 loaves of bread. Well, this year got into the Christmas spirit and got another one by balancing a chimney - complete with smoke - on his head while dressed as Santa! The stunt took place on ITV's This Morning, and Evans said he used discarded pieces from demolished buildings to build the chimney for his balancing act. He tossed a pair of smoke grenades into the 8-foot chute to give the effect of a functioning chimney during his balancing act. He also hopes to set his 100th Guinness record on his 75th birthday in March. He said, "I'm having a big 5-foot crown, 5-foot-across and 5-foot-tall, and for my 75th birthday and my 100th World Record. I'm going to balance this 5-foot crown on my head. I know I can do it, and I'll bring it alive with a few smoke grenades, as well!" (UPI)
