Keeton can stick anything to his skin.
Jamie Keeton of Evergreen Park in Illinois is able to perform the peculiar feat due to a medical condition so rare that doctors don’t even have a name for it.
He first discovered his unique talent quite by accident during a ball game 23 years ago.
“I was trying to cool my head down because it was a hot day. And all of a sudden they hit a home run,” he said. “I went up to grab it… I missed it, and then said, ‘Where’s my drink?’ Everybody was laughing… The drink was stuck to the back of my head. The drink was pouring out of it.”
Now known as ‘canhead’, Keeton has since become something of a celebrity and last week even managed to secure a Guinness World Record in China for sticking eight cans to his head.
Nobody knows exactly how he is able to do it but one possibility is that his abnormally high body temperature of 100 degrees may be causing his pores to act a bit like suction-cups.
