The tiny town of Lerna, Illinois clams to have the world's fastest pop machine.

Hey, they say 'pop' too! Take that 'soda' speakers.

The machine is located in front of Thompson Welding. Owner Ivan Thompson says he bought the rusted machine 30 years ago. He says it's impossible to hit the button and beat the cold beverage to the bottom.

Have a look for yourself in the video report above from WTHITV's Amanda Jarrett.
