Juan Carlos Noguez Ortiz has no fear of bees, and on Wednesday in Toronto he proved it.
Ortiz set a new Guinness world record for wearing a bee beard.
He wore the bee beard for 61 minutes in front of a crowd at Yonge-Dundas Square, beating the previous record of 53 minutes, 34 seconds.
Ortiz said he practised the stunt only twice before the official attempt.
“I wanted to show people that they don’t have to be scared of the bees,” said Ortiz.
Peter Dickey, the master beekeeper at Dickey Bee Honey Farm, provided the bees for the stunt.
“We brought 100,000 bees with us, so there are more bees with us today than ever.
