Dylan Phifer's talent is playing the popular video game, guitar hero.

Last weekend, Phifer racked up 1,019,000 points on the game, beating the previous world record by 10,000 points.

"I never expected to break a world record on something that is kind of important," Phifer said. "Maybe something kinda small, but not this big."

Phifer submitted a videotape of his performance and witness statements to Guinness World Records. He expects to hear back from them in a few weeks.

Phifer's video game talents do not transfer over to a real guitar.
