The man who holds the record for the most Guinness World Records is hoping to add 2 more to his list.

Ashrita Furman, from the New York borough of Queens, smashed 31 pumpkins in one minute with a hammer on Monday.

Furman's attempt almost doubles the previous record.

Later, Furman caught 47 pieces of caramel corn in his mouth in a minute, breaking a previous record of 40 pieces.

Furman says he currently holds more than 200 Guinness records, setting more than 600 over the years.

Some of Furman's records include the fastest mile with milk on his head and the fastest mile pushing an orange with his nose.

The pumpkin smashing and caramel corn catching records aren't official yet.

Furman is waiting on Guinness officials to certify the results.
