Guinness World Record for Longest Travel Livestream, Powered by TNT!

The Philippines just set the Guinness World Record for the Longest Travel Livestream lasting over 26 hours and covering 75 kilometers from Bustos, Bulacan, to Rizal Park in Manila.
 
This achievement is part of the Petmaloop Challenge spearheaded by TNT, the budget-friendly brand of Smart Communications, Inc. They challenged content creators to showcase what makes their hometowns special on TikTok. The twist? They could only use one TNT-powered smartphone, passing it in a relay from one user to the next.

33 content creators faced a big challenge, starting in Davao City on November 4 and traveling through major cities and provinces in Mindanao, the Visayas, and Luzon. To break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Travel Livestream, they took the Petmaloop Challenge to the next level by livestreaming their journey from Bulacan to Manila without any breaks.

“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 not only exceeded 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.
