PHL sets Guinness World Record for Longest Travel Livestream

The Philippines has just set the Guinness World Record for the Longest Travel Livestream lasting for over 26 hours and covering 75 kilometers from Bustos, Bulacan to Rizal Park in Manila. The livestream was part of the Petmaloop Challenge spearheaded by mobile brand TNT of Smart Communications, Inc.), which called on content creators to feature highlights of their hometowns using the micro-vlogging app TikTok. But they could only use one TNT-powered smartphone, which they should pass from one user to another in relay fashion. A total of 33 content creators took on the task, which started in Davao City on Nov. 4 and made its way through other major cities and provinces in Mindanao, the Visayas, and Luzon. But to set the Guinness World Record for the Longest Travel Livestream, the content creators took the Petmaloop Challenge up a notch by livestreaming their journey from Bulacan to Manila without interruption. “I can now confirm that, with 26 hours, 15 minutes, and 29 seconds, TNT has a new Guinness World Record Title! Congratulations!”  declared Fumika Fujibuchi, the Official Adjudicator at Guinness World Records, during the awarding. The Petmaloop Challenge did not only exceed the minimum required uninterrupted livestream hours but also fulfilled various criteria set by The Guinness World Records, which included: focusing on real-time travel experiences, emphasizing the significance of sites and cultural locations; ensuring the livestream is accessible to the entire public throughout the entire attempt; and allowing the livestream to take place at multiple venues, provided there are no gaps or interruptions.
