Usually people spend their one hour time whining up, working out, some take this opportunity to rest or sit down in a meeting, things that are considerably normal. However, this man from Toronto spent his one hour with these luscious companions.
On August 30, 2017, Juan Carlos Noguez Ortiz of Toronto tapped himself in cage along the street. He sat down inside this cage with 100,000 bees huddling around.
Ortiz who works at Dickey Bee Honey Farm in nearby Cookstown sets a new world “bee-beard” Guinness World record after wearing the insects for 1 hour and 1 minute straight.
Ortiz managed to surpass the existing world record of 53 and a half minutes, eight minutes shorter that Ortiz’s record.
This so called “Bee-Bearding” practice sated dates back to 1830, when Petro Prokopovych, an innovative Ukrainian apiarist began to develop this practice in order for him to market his beekeeping products.
This “Bee-Bearding” world record sets by Ortiz was not just intended for topping the rank, this attempt was also intended for educating the public about bees and encourages them to treat this insects with respect.
