Being tall is cool, but imagine being tall enough to create a world record. This family in Esko, Minnesota, USA, broke all the records and were recognised as the 'Tallest Family' by Guinness World of Records (GWR).

Meet the Trapp family of five: Scott, Krissy, Savanna, Molly and Adam. With an average height of 203.29 cm (6 ft 8.03 in) the Trapps were confirmed as the tallest family in the world.

For those wondering what it would look like if we combine their height. Well, it is equivalent to the length of half a tennis court! They used to actively participate in sports and were recruited by colleges for either basketball or volleyball.

Ever since the video was uploaded on Instagram it has been watched 509k times and has garnered 48.6k likes with multiple comments.
