Simpsons Fans Break Guinness World Record

Welcome to the Guinness Book of World Records, Jeremiah Franco and Carin Shreve.

They set the Guinness World Record for longest continuous television viewing by watching 86 hours and 37 minutes of The Simpsons.

¡Ay, caramba!

Fox sponsored the contest in honor of the 500th episode of The Simpsons, which airs this Sunday.

Franco and Shreve walked away with $10,500 and likely a pair of gnarly bags under their eyes.
