Guy Breaks Hugging World Record In A Grab At Glory

A true record HOLDER.

Who knew that one of the attributes of a champion could be affection?

Krishna Kumar recently broke the Guinness World Record for most hugs in a minute, Guinness noted in its YouTube description.

HuffPost India wrote that while he attempted to hug 83 people, he officially recorded 79 because a few of his embraces were more "headlocks than hugs" to the record committee.

He made his attempt at a school in Pradesh, India, in March, according to the record website, but the video was just posted by Guinness on Tuesday.

The previous hug mark was 77, but now you can kiss that record goodbye.

You deserve a congratulatory hug, dude.
