Not only did Andrew Cowen bowl a 280, a feat that included 10 consecutive strikes, he did it all while bowling backwards.

Cowen submitted a video to of him putting in an unforgettable performance at Don Carter Lanes in Rockford, Ill. Using an unusual delivery, which starts with him holding the ball high above his head, twisting it behind his back and tossing it onto the lane, Cowen nearly tallied a perfect score.

Even Cowen's imperfections resulted in some amazing moments. For his second-frame spare, Cowen somehow managed to knock down the final pin without looking.

If his mark stands, Cowen should top the previous world record holder, James Cripps, who registered a 278 in December 2006.
