The Netflix Movie Watching Championship Comes to a Close

After 123 hours and 10 minutes of continuous movie watching (yes, that means zero hours of sleep), the Netflix Movie Watching World Championship in NYC's Time Square has come to a close. Yesterday, Susan Sarandon was on hand to deliver the final movie Thelma and Louise (which was movie number 57) to the winners Suresh Joachim and Claudia Wavra. Joachim, a Sri Lanka native who now resides in Toronto, and Wavra of Petersberg, Germany achieved a new Guinness World Record for most consecutive hours spent watching movies. Aside from the record title, the pair also get to take home a lifetime Netflix subscription, the Netflix Popcord Bowl Trophy, and a $10,000 cash prize. Congrats to the winners!
