Watch: Man sets new world record covered in bees

TORONTO, CANADA -- A new Guinness world record has been set, and all it took was one man and a swarm of bees.

Juan Carlos Noguez Ortiz from Toronto, Canada, had to wear a "bee beard" for 61 minutes to set the new record.

He beat the previous record by almost eight minutes.

Ortiz says he's not scared of bees and he practiced the stunt twice before doing the real thing.

He says he's only got a few stings in the process.
