While it may seem pretty straightforward, according to the Guinness site, it is actually a tough trick to master as the spaghetti strand often snaps part-way. To qualify for the record, the spaghetti strand was not to be broken between the pairs until their lips touched. The rule also required that the single piece would have to be consumed by both within 30 seconds.
