Al Jackson is our Officially Amazing presenter in the U.S. bringing us fantastic stateside records.

Al took part in all sorts of silly things to bring Officially Amazing records to you.

Some of them were messy, some of them were very full-FILLING – put it this way, he may not ever want to order a large pizza again!

We caught up with him to ask some very important questions:


  1. What do you like best about being an Officially Amazing presenter? Where do I begin?
    I think what stands out most for me as a presenter is the "amazing" people I have been lucky enough to meet. All of the record attempters have something special about them that always shines through when meeting them.
  2. What is the craziest record attempt you have ever seen? No doubt, dog surfing... No doubt.
  3. What would you be able to set a record doing? Probably the shortest distance run before being completely out of breath!
  4. If you could invent a new record what would it be? Something involving the most consecutive hours of sports watched by one man.
  5. Is there a record attempt you wish you had witnessed? I want to meet the world's tallest man. It's on my bucket list!
  6. Why do you think people should attempt to break records? Life is about maintaining focus. Trying to break a world record forces you to have it. EVERYONE should try and break one at some point in their lives.
  7. What's the funniest thing that has happened to you since you have been an Officially Amazing presenter? Attempting to surf. That's all I'll say.
  8. What makes the Americans so good at breaking records? Americans will do anything to get on TV and if you try something crazy enough- we're happy to show it.
  9. Do you have a favourite animal record attempt? The dog surfing was my favourite! Who knew that there was one dog that surfed, much less 20!!
  10. What is Officially Amazing about you? I am a man without fear, I'll try anything once. Twice if you ask nicely!
