Jason David Frank, Ex-Power Ranger, Breaks 7 Pine Boards During Free Fall, Sets World Record

Former Power Ranger Jason David Frank retired from fighting Lord Zedd a while back. Now he breaks Guinness world records.

On Thursday, the 38-year-old martial artist broke seven pine boards during a freefall over Rosharon, Texas, Chron.com reports. Frank -- who performed as the white and green ranger -- shattered the previous record of five pine boards broken in free fall.

In the video, Frank -- appropriately in white -- is encircled by fellow divers (we'll pretend they're Zords), each holding a pine board. One by one, in classic Tommy Oliver style, he smashes each board. Eat your heart out, Kimberly!

According to his official Facebook fan page, Frank will spend 2013 appearing at several Comic Cons across the country. Of course, meet and greets aren't as cool as fighting intergalactic evil, but the actor seems to be doing alright. He boasts nearly 100,000 Facebook likes and 12,000 Twitter followers.

Still, we'll never like him quite as much as we did when he was competing with Jason and performing advanced acrobatics in a high school cafeteria.
