Fans of all things 'Jersey' are no strangers to that state's signature fist-pump dance.

However, a local radio show on 96.7 KISS FM took it one step further Tuesday. "The Bobby Bones Show" helped one of its producers fist-pump to a new world record.

The popular radio show's producer, Ray Slater, did the dance for 17 hours and 15 minutes, beating the previous record by 15 minutes.

Bobby Bones says he knew this physical challenge would be perfect for Ray.

"I actually read it on a small blog on Saturday, and I texted Ray and said, 'Hey, I have something that I think you'd be perfect for, and it involves strenuous physical activity,’” he said. “But I didn't tell him what it was. And he said he was in. Then when I told him what it was, he was like, 'For sure I can do that.'"

Ray said he had to superglue his hand to make sure it stayed in a fist the whole time.

"Seriously my hands were numb within five minutes of super-gluing them,” Producer Ray Slater said. “Then my arm was dead hours later and it's just honestly like I've just been throwing around a weight. Not even an arm. It's a weird feeling."

Cameras captured the whole dance-solo to stream live on the Internet.
