LG EARNS GUINNESS WORLD RECORD FOR “WORLD’S LONGEST SELFIE RELAY CHAIN”
- 06, 13 2015
SINGAPORE, June 2015 — LG Electronics earned itself a spot in the record books for the most consecutive selfies taken in one place with the help of over 2,500 participants in Mexico City. With a Guinness World Record official on hand, the “longest selfie relay chain” was set with an LG G4 near historic Chapultepec Castle in Mexico City over a period of two hours on June 13.
The total of 746 individual and group selfies surpassed the previous record of 531 consecutive selfies set in the United States just last month. Guinness World Record official Alex Angert supervised the record attempt and is in the process of validating the record back at Guinness headquarters.
“With one selfie taken approximately every 10 seconds, the LG G4 used for the record attempt managed to go the distance without needing a recharge or a battery swap,” said Daniel Aguilar, who coordinated the event for LG Electronics Mexico. “The G4 still had plenty of juice left but we ran out of people.”
