Imagine being a runner for this production company. 'Clean it up, please, then get me a coffee.'

Do the blocks themselves also hold a Guinness record for being the weakest blocks still classed as 'concrete'?

Not impressed.
If he was to lay that many blocks with cement and build something useful in one minute I would be impressed.
In my view, creation is more impressive than destruction.

Fake fakery is fake. How can anyone be defending this as genuine? Toward the end there, I doubt his punches were strong enough to penetrate a corrugated cardboard box, much less concrete.

I guarantee you, if I stacked just two concrete pavers from Home Depot atop one another and invited this guy to break them, the result would be a broken hand--and two intact concrete pavers.

Those are not concrete blocks. You simply do not break concrete blocks.

Thank you for your comments, Morfeus. However, I have seen this kind of thing debunked on TV, with complete amateurs breaking blocks in this manner. I have filmed people breaking boards for local TV and noted the soft, straight-grained wood that beginners break so easily. I think it's a shame that this kind of gimmickry is included in genuine martial arts.

@carmium PRIMO: as long as you ,as a person,NEVER did any martial sports of ANY kind,you will not speak of it being bullsh*t ; SECUNDO:"padded" hands,if they are not tactical reinforced gloves from the bomb squad,you will not break anything close to concrete,buddy,you need mental acuity and certain "momentum" only witnessed in the soon to become masters of respective martial art ; TERTIO : ANY martial art competitive sport have a part of the respective ranking doing breaking's like these,and they're "stacked" exactly like this (only one that could break river stones was Masutatsu Oyama,the founder of Kyokushin Kay (OS!)

Shenanigans.

Give me a fat guy with padded gloves and he'll do the same thing with zero martial arts training.

Board/brick/block breaking is pretty simple, and doesn't require a lot of strength or years of training.

Well, it's probably not as amazing as it seems to be, but I definitely can't do that.

This is such bullsh*t! As long as you hands are a bit tough and padded with gloves, you can break these blocks. They're always stacked with an inch or two of airspace between them, so that the weight of the first helps break the second, the first+second break the the third, first, second, + third break the forth, and so on.
As 10Bears notes, these look suspiciously like aerated concrete, but you can do similar feats with slabs of more typical stuff, if not at the same rate as this phoney.

I dunno... doesn't look like concrete judging by the way they were bouncing, maybe plaster or something.. but then again I am a natural cynic/skeptic...could be legit.

Okay, I'm impressed, but, did you notice how the woman announcer DID NOT exist to that man? Wow! He just made her persona non grata. She could have been completely naked and he couldn't have paid her less attention.
