'The Mountain' From Game Of Thrones Has Set The World Record For Carrying Fridges

Fulfilling a lifelong dream

Look, both guys in this video are world class strongmen. But by the time they introduce the competitors pre-game, you know who's going to win. Thor Bjornsson—best known as Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane on HBO's Game of Thrones—is listed in this video at 6'9", 386 pounds. Those are actual giant specs. He is a giant. Add in that sweet cape and the terrifying roar he emits, and Zydrunas Savickas doesn't stand a chance.

Then the competition begins. Lithuania's Savickas goes first, and he's no slouch. He gets all the way to the end carrying two huge-ass fridges—complete with ice machine slots—before stopping to rest on the two yard line. That slows him down crucially, and gives The Mountain a bigger window to break the much-sought-after Guinness World Record for the 20-Meter Fridge Carry. (OK, fine. We'd never heard of it before either.)

The Mountain steps up next, and he's a machine. As he covers the 20 meters in what turns out to be record time, the cameras make sure to zero in on his surprisingly run-of-the-mill kicks. Are those ASICS?

In the end, Bjornsson is the champ. Congrats to the giant Icelander on the newly prestigious record.
