Ramiro Alanis Watches ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ 292 Times, Setting World Record
A Florida man has won back his world record after watching Spider-Man: No Way Home 292 times.
Ramiro Alanis broke the record for “most cinema productions attended of the same film” in 2019, after having watched Avengers: Endgame 191 times. But in 2021, Arnaud Klein beat him out by watching Kaamelott: First Installment 204 times, according to a news release from Guinness World Records.
To win back the title, Alanis spent 720 hours, or 30 days, watching the latest installment in the Spider-Man saga between December 16, 2021, and March 15, 2022. For the first few weeks of his record attempt, he watched five back-to-back screenings each day.
Alanis estimates that he spent around $3,400 on movie tickets over the three months it took to set the record.
In a statement, Alanis said the record had a special meaning.
“I’m happy I got to take my record back, despite Spider-Man: No Way Home being a great movie, achieving this record once again has a personal meaning and I dedicate it to my Grandma Juany who passed away in 2019 before my record with Endgame was made official,” he said.
Alanis has experienced bathroom heartbreak in the past.
While setting a previous record with 191 viewings of Avengers: Endgame, 11 attempts were disqualified because Alanis went to the bathroom.
Because Endgame was a longer film than Spider-Man, Alanis said holding off on bathroom breaks this time wasn’t much of a challenge because he had “learned to hold it ’til between screenings.”
For the Spider-Man run to count, Alanis had to submit a ticket stub for each viewing, and statements were taken from a theatre attendant.
In a tweet, Alanis said Marvel or Sony hadn’t contacted him after his record-breaking stint but said he is already planning what record he wants to break next.
He will leave the movie theater behind and head to the gym as he trains for the most extended dead hang while holding 100 pounds.
