A man named Ibrahim Sadeq is now the new World Record holder for highest M&M stack.
I'm not sure how this competition started or who first came up with the idea to track the record but the number to beat has quickly increased from 3 or 4 to 7.
I was surprised to see how quickly he stacks them. I thought this might take 10 minutes or longer. I'm not sure how long it takes in actual time but the entire process seems to go rather quickly - although the last one seems pretty close to making it tip the rest of the pile.
He does not seem to be picky about the individual candies that he chooses but it's possible that the pile has been chosen based on some quality we don't know.
