No Video sorry. Just searched "Texting world record" on google and even found this from wikipedia

"Elliot Nicholls of Dunedin, New Zealand, currently holds the World Record for the fastest blindfolded text messaging. A record of a 160 letter text in 45 seconds while blindfolded was set on 17 November 2007, beating the old record of 1 minute 26 seconds set by an Italian during September 2006.[80"
