Guy Watches TV for 94 Hours, Sets New World Record

This is Alejandro "AJ" Fragoso, one of the greatest athletes in the world. He recently sat on a couch watching television for 94 straight hours, thus setting a Guinness World Record.

Fragoso and two other competitors sat down on a Friday to binge watch Bob's Burgers, Battlestar Galactica, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and The Twlight Zone. The other would-be champions eventually collapsed, but Fragoso pushed on, eventually surpassing the previous record of 92 hours. The Washington Post quotes Fragoso on the experience:

“Around the second day we started having minor hallucinations we started seeing writing on the screen that wasn’t there,” he told local TV station WPIX. “You forget there’s an outside world at that point you’re trapped in this tiny room.” […]

A doctor was present and conducted a physical check-up before and after the event. In the end, he found that Fragoso had an elevated heart rate and exhibited neurological side effects, including involuntary open-eyed “micronaps” and acute hallucinations.

The physician — Robert Glatter, a professor at the Northwell Hofstra School of Medicine — credited Fragoso’s Mediterranean diet and frequent standing and stretching with helping the 25-year-old fight fatigue and maintain his blood-sugar levels.

"He recently sat on a couch watching television for 94 straight hours, thus setting a Guinness World Record."

It was my understanding that Guinness stopped doing sleep records a long time ago, so people wouldn't hurt themselves? Hence Randy Gardner's 11 day sleepless record still active since 1964. (Not sure what the watching TV element adds to this)
