A metallic man whose body provides a bizarre attraction to heavy metal has gone to great lengths to get his spot stuck firmly in the record books.Etibar Elchiyev posed with more than 50 spoons magnetized to his skin during his attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Most Spoons On A Human Body.

However after a change of plan he decided to break the world record for balancing them on his body instead – managing to secure 50 around his neck and chest.
Elchiyev discovered his talent of attracting metal to his body less than a year ago but has quickly taken to the world of magnetism.Elchyev is a kick-boxing trainer and discovered the magnetic property of his body less than a year ago. He even magnetized a car hood to his body, with a man sitting on it.
