Bulldog Completes a Record-Setting Skateboard Stunt
November 12, Guinness World Records' 11th annual World Records Day, was one for the—well, you know. Guinness estimates that as many as 650,000 people participated this year, and news of their accomplishments are still rolling in.
A man in India fit 15 lit candles in his mouth at once to beat his own existing record. A robot created by a student in Florida set a record for the fastest time to solve a Rubik's cube—besting the classic toy in just 2.39 seconds. A Marine veteran completed 5,862 pull ups in Times Square in 24 hours to not just set a world record, but to also raise awareness for Veterans Operation Wellness. And the Harlem Globetrotters set seven distinct records: Farthest kneeling basketball shot made blindfolded, longest basketball shot made backwards, most basketball three-pointers made in one minute by a pair, longest underhand basketball shot, longest duration spinning a basketball on the nose, most basketball slam dunks in one minute, and furthest blindfolded basketball hook shot.
But perhaps the cutest record-setter of the day was Otto, a three-year-old bulldog from Peru who set the (presumably not highly-contested) record for "Longest Human Tunnel Traveled Through By a Skateboarding Dog." Otto—who surfs, too, according to his owners—rolled through the legs of 30 people. And while it looks like he certainly got a little help from gravity and a hill, he also demonstrates an ability to steer and give himself an extra push. Check him out:
