Stride gum prides itself on being “ridiculously long lasting,” and to celebrate that fact they are setting the record for the “Longest Lasting Streak of Long Lasting Records.”  Stride is setting a new “long lasting record” every day for 100 days and inviting fans to break their records for a shot at $500 and long lasting notoriety.

So far they’ve set the record for the longest balloon volley using heads, the longest time spent kicking one’s own butt, and the most table tennis balls bounced into cups in one minute. They’ve got 97 more records to go, and in the meantime they’ve invited their fans to try to break their records.  If you hold the record for any one of the challenges at the end of the 100 days, you’ll get $500.  If all of the records are broken, 100 $500 prizes will be rewarded at the end of the 100 days.
