Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his team created the largest layered dip in January 2017. Crafted in a 100-gallon fish tank, it took over five hours to craft this mega-sized tailgating classic. The dip, which weighed 540 pounds, was later donated to an organization for people who are experiencing homelessness. 

The actor also holds the record for most selfies taken in three minutes, at an impressive 105.

Justin Bieber has held records for the most-viewed music channel on YouTube, the first music channel viewed three billion times (JustinBieberVEVO), and the youngest solo artist to get five number one US albums. 

Bieber was also the first act ever to simultaneously hold the top three positions on the UK singles chart with “Love Yourself” (No.1), “Sorry” (No.2), and “What Do You Mean?” (No.3) on January 14, 2016. Not even The Beatles or Elvis Presley managed this feat. 

The singer previously held the world record for most “disliked” video online thanks to his song “Baby,” but that title has since been taken over by the “YouTube Rewind 2018.”
