A teenager from Pakistan has become an internet sensation after he filmed himself popping his eye balls out.
Ahmed Khan, 14, can pop his eyes out beyond eye sockets by over 10 mm. Khan, who studies at a local school in Lahore, discovered his unique ability to pop his eyes last year.
‘Last year, I was doing something and I touched my eye and the eyeball popped out,’ said the 14-year-old. ‘I thought I had damaged my eye or something but realised it did not cause any harm to my eye.
‘I tried popping the other eye out and I was successful. This seemed fun and after trying a couple of times I got used to it.’
Although, he is very popular in his school thanks to his unique talent, many kids are scared of Khan.
‘Many younger kids in school run away when they see me. They are scared of my eye popping,’ he said.
‘Even the girls in school get scared. They think that my eyes will fall out into my hands or something.’
Khan is now ‘eyeing’ a place in the Guinness World record books.
‘Once I had mastered the art of popping eyeballs at will, I was told by my friends about Guinness Book of World Records. That day it became my aim to break the record,’ he said.
The record for popping eyeballs to the maximum currently belongs to Kim Goodman from the US who can pop her eyes out of her eye sockets by 12mm.
Khan said: ‘My eye popping is way better than the American woman who owns the record and I can break her record anytime.’
