How It All Began: The Idea and Preparation
The two friends, Emily and Tim, were discussing world records and thought it would be fun to attempt one themselves. They knew they wanted to break a record that was achievable, but also challenging. After some research, they stumbled upon the world record for the longest FaceTime call and decided to go for it. They spent weeks preparing – making sure their devices were fully charged, arranging schedules to ensure they had the time, and even practicing their chat skills.

Emily and Tim have been friends since college and have always been up for a challenge. Emily is a fitness instructor and Tim is a software engineer. They both have a competitive streak and love to push themselves to their limits. Emily is also a big believer in the power of human connection and thought that breaking the FaceTime record would be a fun way to showcase that.

To break the record, Emily and Tim had to stay on FaceTime for the entire duration of the call without any breaks longer than 10 minutes. They had to show their faces and keep the call active at all times. They were allowed to eat and drink during the call, but had to stay in view of the camera.
