Coca-Cola can collector sets new world record
A Coca-Cola can fan has broken a world record thanks to his impressive collection.
Canadian Gary Feng owns 11,308 different cans from 108 separate countries, which is officially a new Guiness World Record.
He broke the previous record for largest collection of soft drink cans (same brand) in the world, which was 10,558 and held by Italian Davide Andreani – who was also a huge fan of Coca-Cola.
In a post on the Guinness World Record website, Gary lists some of his favourite cans.
These include a can that was specially created for use in low gravity environments to coincide with the launch of space shuttle Challenger on July 4, 1985.
“It’s beautiful. It’s also a piece of history as well” he remarked.
Also in his collection is a Russian version of a similar can, which was first consumed on Soviet space station Mir on August 26, 1991.
“The Russian version is actually more rare. I believe many, many can collectors are dreaming of having this piece in their collection.”
He also has an extremely ran can in his collection, which is a slightly crumpled can and reads Stranger Things on the side.
It never publicly went on sale and was part of a promotional package given only to select social media personalities.
