  Largest Chewed Gumball: Barry Chappell sets world record (Video)

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA -- After six years, Barry Chappell has sculpted a giant ball made entirely of chewed Nicorette gum (worth $30,000), weighing in at 175 pounds and measuring 62" in circumference, it sets the world record for the Largest chewed gumball, according to World Record Academy (

  Chappell was a heavy smoker for many years, but his life changed fifteen years ago when his son was born. He immediately quit smoking, switching to Nicorette gum as a means of transition, but it soon became much more.

  What began as a promise to his family soon turned into a crazy adventure that would eventually set a world record.

  The Guinness world record for the Largest ball of clim film was set by Jake Lonsway of Bay City, Michigan, USA, who created the largest ball of cling film, which measured 351 cm (138 in) in circumference and weighed 127.7 kg (281 lb 8 oz).

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest ball of magnetic tape: it weighs 570 kg (1,256 lb) and measures 2.125 m (6 ft 11 in) in width by 2.030 m (6 ft 7 in) in height and was achieved by EMC at the Kings Place Gallery, York Way, London
  It all started on a long flight to Europe in 2006—Chappell had nowhere to throw away the piece of gum he was chewing, so he rolled it into a tiny ball. Throughout the flight the ball slowly grew, as layer after layer was carefully molded upon the last. By the time the flight landed, Chappell vowed to create the world's largest gumball!

  "What started out as kind of a joke between my daughter and me has turned into a really fun project over the last few years," said Chappell of how the gumball started.

  95,200 pieces of Nicorette gum later, Chappell has reached his goal, and Ripley's Believe It Or Not! is coming to Art & Coin TV to make it official and present their first-ever award for the World's Largest Medicated Gumball.
