In the reel, we can see Ashrita Furman lying down on a table outdoors. He neatly slices watermelons down the middle as they are placed on his stomach by a helper. In his right hand, he holds a long knife (some might call it almost a sword) to slash the fruit. Although he set the record in 2018, his feat received fresh interest when Guinness World Records released the footage a few days ago. The Instagram reel has 1.7 million views so far. Watch it below:
In the comment section, people seem to be amused by the man's actions while others were concerned for his safety. A few couldn't believe that there was actually a world record for this skill.

They managed to slice 64 watermelons in a minute.
