Halifax man claims world record by gobbling up 19 donairs in an hour

Dreams can come true.

A 23-year-old Nova Scotia man has set what he says is a world record by eating 19 donairs in an hour.

Competitive eater Joel Hansen filmed himself mowing down on the Halifax specialty at a restaurant and then posted the video on YouTube.

“I was very full to say the least,” Hansen told Halifax Today. “Let’s say the rest of the night was maybe not the most comfortable situation, but the next morning I was feeling absolutely fine.”

Hansen said the challenge cost him just over $150.
