It's AUCKLAND CRANES & THE CAGED ALASTAIR GALPIN.
New Zealand's most active world record-breaker is hanging at Rainbow's End, New Zealandâ€™s premier theme park, where he's doing his bit for charity. The Problem Gambling Foundation of New Zealand (www.pgfnz.org.nz) was only too happy to receive the offer of another world record attempt from Galpin. Last year, he and the then-Chief Executive, John Stansfield, took 57 radio interviews in 24 hours, broadcast to much of the globe. That was a year after Galpin had arranged for a helicopter to smash 4 slot machines into a rubbish dump from 296 metres. The American band Fall Out Boy has recently beaten Galpin and Stansfield's radio interview best, to which Galpin replied â€œOur charity message obviously spread worldwide, so much so that our event attracted a well-known rock bandâ€.
So what's this world record? It's under the auspices of Record Holders' Republic, titled â€œMost Radio Interviews in Suspended Cageâ€. Galpin is dangling, waiting for your call ... his target is 250 radio stations.
Just between you and Galpin:
â€¢ His life is literally hanging in the balance like a pendulum in the wind.
â€¢ If the wind exceeds 50 km/h, a very seasick Galpin will be forced to earth.
â€¢ Meals delivered by raising a bucket.
â€¢ His â€œofficeâ€ is a desk straddling a porcelain public toilet bowl.
â€¢ There's no more fun way to say gambling needn't become your problem.
His goal is to remain up here for weeks during April 2009, as he plans future world records by the dozen.
