The post added, “In 2013, on the US TV show Guinness World Records Unleashed, a donut was dipped into a coffee cup measuring just 8.89 cm (3.5 inches) in diameter.” It added, “The current record for the highest bungee jump is 73.41 meters (240 feet 10 inches) by Simon Berry (UK) who dipped a biscuit in a cup of tea in 2016.”

In the video, we see the man jumping off a hanging platform. And before we knew it, he took a donut in his hand and dipped it into a cup of coffee. The video took the internet by storm and received nearly 66,000 likes and hundreds of comments.
