Three Hungarian folk dancers set new world record – watch the following video, they are unbelievably fast.

Four Hungarian young men, known as the folk dance ensemble Fricska are world record holders. These guys are not only faster than the Irish ‘Lord of the Dance’ legend Michael Flatley, but have smashed their five-year-old record and even created a new dance style, writes.

The members of Fricska have become the fastest folk dance ensemble, individually and in a group as well. Bálint Gergely Papp, Bence Máté Papp, Márk Popovics, and Dániel Szabó managed to tap 39, 42, 45, and 44 times in one second. They also hit their chests and thighs during the movement – it is impossible to see the details, the jury could only count their steps and strikes only in slow motion. Just to be precise, we must tell you that Michael Flatley’s record used to be 35 times in one second. Absolutely unbelievable, right?

We have talked enough of this fantastic world record, now let us show you the guys tapping. Check out the first 47 seconds of the following video, it is unbelievable!
