The thumb of Jacob Pina gives a new meaning to the term & # 39; digitally enhanced & # 39 ;.
The Massachusetts student, 20, is the proud owner of an oversized right thumb – and now he goes outside with it.
And after doubts were raised after he posted a video on Tik Tok, DailyMail.com decided that we should confirm his boasting.
And we can confirm – yes, it's really huge!
OK, not as big as he initially said it was, but even he admits that there was some exaggeration when he claimed it was 5 centimeters long.
& # 39; It actually looks more like 4½, & # 39; he admitted. And when we got out of the ruler, it was pretty good.
Jacob Pina, 20, is the proud owner of an oversized right thumb – and now he goes with it in an exclusive sit-down interview with DailyMail.com. Pina, from Westport, Massachusetts, went viral after posting a video on Tik Tok, claiming it was 5 centimeters long, but Pina admitted: & # 39; Actually it's more like 4½ & # 39;
Second-year student at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island, said he first realized the oddity in his first year at Bishop Connolly High School
Pina's long thumb places him in the same class as the character of Uma Thurman in the movie Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (right), who used her big thumbs to hitchhike through America
But that's pretty big. It certainly places him in the same class as the character of Uma Thurman in the 1994 Even Cowgirls Get the Blues movie that used her big thumbs to hitchhike America.
Pina may not get his thumb on the big screen, but he says his thumb offers him some advantages. For example, he is never defeated in thumb wars.
& # 39; And I'm pretty good with Xbox. I'm really good at Rainbow Six Siege. I was probably in the top ten in the world for ten consecutive years. & # 39;
Since putting a video of his thumb online, Pina from Westport, Massachusetts has been overwhelmed by the fascination of the public.
& # 39; I can't believe the number of likes I have & # 39 ;, he told DailyMail.com.

& # 39; I was sitting with my friend Alec and this boy named Cameron and he said: & # 39; Wow, look at this boy's thumb.
& # 39; I said What do you mean, my thumb? & # 39; And he called his friends and they were like whoa, whoa, whoa, and I actually realized that.
& # 39; It was not bullying, they had never seen anything like it. & # 39;
But there can be a downside to a figure that breaks the general rule of thumb. For example, even in cold New England winters, gloves are a problem. & # 39; I can't wear them. Well that is possible, but it becomes painful, there is always pressure on my thumb. & # 39;
So where did Jumbo thumbo come from? & # 39; I don't know, nobody else in my family has it. However, my grandfather's hands are pretty weird, & Pina said.
While his right thumb is the oddity, his left is just as long, he says. & # 39; But it is normally bent. It does not look exactly the same and it looks more normal.

On his Tik Tok video, the communications major begins by showing his clenched fist with only his thumb out.
& # 39; Hey guys, this is my thumb. Yes, it is very long, yes it is real and yes, I have never lost a thumb fight. & # 39;
He then jokes his thumb to wipe a water bottle from his table.
He says he has no idea why his thumb is so disproportionate to the rest of his hand, but he has embraced it and loves to show it off.
He said: & # 39; There is no reason, it's so big, just a deviation.
& # 39; When people see my thumb, they go crazy and measure next to their own thumb, I feel good about it.
& # 39; It's always great to be different and embrace your own essence.
