Juan Carlos Noguez Ortiz has smashed the record for the person who dared to sit still for the longest amount of time whilst a swarm of bees smothered his face to create a long facial hair-looking illusion over his body.

The Canadian male didn't move for nearly eighty minutes whilst the winged animals covered his face, which saw him gain the title.

Although Juan works at a honeybee farm and is used to being up close and personal with bees it didn't stop him from being stung.

And footage of Juan covered in the insects has taken the world by storm and has gone viral on social media, the video has also been obtained by Metro Online.
