German-born David Garrett set a world record on UK children's TV program Blue Peter on Wednesday by playing Flight of the Bumble Bee in 66 seconds. Modestly, he said that the secret was slow practice for over 20 years.

My favorite bit is when he gets one of the show presenters to play part of Madonna's latest single on the violin. Too much fun.
