Video: Austrian stuntman Josef Toedtling holds three Guinness World Records that few people would even dare think about challenging. His specialty is being set on fire, and his most impressive record-setting feat saw his entire body engulfed in flames for a full five minutes and 41 seconds. Toedtling uses multiple layers of fire-proof clothing and slathers himself in a special cooling gel which helps him endure the heat for so long — but don't for a second think that the experience doesn't get unbearable.

Sounds like a tough way to earn your 15 minutes of fame.
