Florida Man Breaks World Record By Watching 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' 292 Times

To achieve this feat, Ramiro Alanis was not allowed to even go to the bathroom whilst the movie was running.

Ramiro Alanis has proved (again) that he is a Marvel superfan. The Florida man has reclaimed his record for the "most cinema productions attended of the same film." He managed this feat by watching the latest Spider-Man: No Way Home 292 times between 16 December 2021 and 15 March 2022. This is roughly a runtime of 720 hours or 30 days as per Guinness World Records.



 

Alanis previously held this record in 2019 after he had watched Avengers: Endgame 191 times. The title was briefly held by Arnaud Klein who watched Kaamelott: First Instalment 204 times. But now the title is back with Alanis.



 

But earning this title is no easy task. After all, for each viewing to be successfully counted towards the record total, the movie must be watched independently of any other activity. This means Alanis wouldn't be allowed to look at his phone, take a nap, or even go to the bathroom whilst the movie was running. He had to learn the hard way to hold his pee while the movie was running since the previous time 11 of his viewings were not counted because of bathroom breaks. But one thing that worked in his favor as a Marvel fan is meeting the condition of watching the film to completion since it's a given to sit through till the end of the credits.

Other conditions included submitting the ticket stubs as evidence and a theatre attendant confirming that he met the other viewing conditions. To set the World Record, Alanis went to back-to-back screenings of No Way Home for three months until movie theatres stopped showing it. For the first few weeks, he watched five screenings every day which would be a total runtime of 12 hours 20 minutes. He had to juggle other life priorities to reclaim his title which he did in honor of his grandmother Juany, who passed away in 2019 before she could see him earn his Guinness World Records title. "She was my #1 supporter and I want to remain the record holder," he stated.

The late-night viewings were the hardest part for Alanis, who works as a personal trainer. Watching the film continuously for half a day over consecutive days gave him headaches. The last time he attempted this he lost 16 lb (7.25 kg) of muscle which was a sacrifice he was willing to make for the sake of the title. "If anyone tries to break my record again, I want them to think twice before attempting it," Alanis stated. He is now, unsurprisingly, able to "pretty much recite the dialogue along with the movie." As a fan of Spider-Man, he has met Tom Holland.
