The mismatched pair posed in front of the historic Giza Pyramids in Cairo, Egypt, today after being invited by the Egyptian Tourism Promotion Board.

The two Guinness World Records holders will be touring Cairo’s most famous touristic sites, in addition to taking part in a conference in the Fairmont Nile City hotel, Cairo.

Both record-holders won their records in 2011.

Kosen, 35, was first measured in Ankara, Turkey in 2011 and was the first to be measured by Guinness in over 20 years, according to the Guinness World Records official website.

Guinness World Records only has 10 confirmed people in history to reach 8 ft or more. See photos below
