So you can spin a basketball on your finger? But can you make it whirls on a toothbrush stuck in your mouth?

A 25-year-old man from Punjab has exactly done that and even set a new Guinness world record for his unconventional yet extremely impressive basketball skills.

Sandeep Singh broke the record for “Longest duration spinning a basketball on a toothbrush” by performing the feat for nearly a minute in front of an audience in Dharamkot.

A video of the act performed on April 8 was posted by Guinness World Records on YouTube on Wednesday.

In the video, he can be seen spinning the basketball on his finger and then transferring it to a toothbrush and finally balancing the toothbrush on his mouth by leaning his head to the side.

Singh manages to keep the ball rotating for an incredible 53 seconds without touching it. He bettered the previous record by 6.84 seconds.

“It was my dream to break a world record,” he told Guinness after his record-breaking feat.
