Video about the name of a protein

Titin is the biggest protein that exists in our body. It is composed by almost 27000 aminoacid residues and has a molar mass of about 3tons/mol!!! As you can imagine, it should be hard to pronounce its name according tot the rules of organic chemistry numenclature. Here it is a video of someone brave enough to spend more than 3 hours saying the name of this protein, which has "only" 189819 letters. You can even notice that during the video his beard grows. eheheh

Thanks to Hélder Pimenta for this contribution! :)
