“Hammer Head” John Ferraro, a Boston-area man hammered his way to the record earlier this week on the Guinness World Records Italian Show, a weekly YouTube series.
John Ferraro look mighty determined as under two minutes, he nailed it ― by pounding 38 nails into a board with his skull. That’s quite impressive!
He is quite known too as “Hammer Head,” also holds the one-minute record (13 nails) and the world record for “Most concrete blocks broken on the head with a bowling ball in three minutes (male). Ferraro broke 45 blocks in that time frame back in April 2011.
His skull is more than twice as thick as the average man and probably thrice as a numb ― 16 millimeters in thickness compared to an average of 6.5, according to the Daily Mail.
Ferraro discovered he was thickheaded when he was a kid and went head-first through a wooden door while chasing his brother, according to Guinness.
When Ferraro isn’t banging his head against nails for glory, he works as a professional wrestler under the name “Gino Martino.”
