He did one in 51sec on the radio CKOI 96,9 FM (very popular here) but his real win is the one in the above video at Just for Laughs festival in front of thousand of people with 55.57 sec, Ben Lee did it at 58.515 sec. Anyway this is the one at the radio station.

http://fr.canoe.ca/divertissem.....6-qmi.html (in french sorry) They said that Guinness certified this but even though there are  dozen of french news site claiming this, I don't see it yet on Guinness website. Anyway he proved his point :) and like I said it's his presence on the stage I admire more then his speed, he is a funny guy and clearly enjoy himself tremendously.cheerleader

I never knew until now that Canadian radio station call letters start with a C. Now, that makes sense. I never understood why W and K were selected for U.S. stations. This got me thinking, so I googled it. I still don't have a good answer on why W and K in particular were selected, but I learned some interesting trivia about station call letters in the process.

And regarding the videos...I'm fascinated watching him bowing so fast and keeping the bow perfectly parallel to the bridge. Better watch that some more. Maybe I'll learn something from that, too.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.
