Donnie Wahlberg, the founding member of boy band “New Kids on the Block”, has broken the Guinness World Records for most selfies in 3 minutes with his fans on board on 24 October 2016.
As per the report by the Hollywood Reporter, who also got an opportunity to capture the moment, Wahlberg clicked 122 selfies beating the former record of 119 selfies by Aruba, a digital enterprise company in Singapore that bagged the title earlier this year.
Well, this wasn’t Donnie’s first shot at the title. The actor-singer has also tried achieving the title last year on NKOTA Cruise but was unsuccessful to do so. However, this year on New Kids on the Block 8th annual cruise party, which was kicked off from New Orleans, LA to Cozumel, MX from 20th October to 24th October, cruise guests helped Donnie Walhberg set a new world selfie record. The 3000 guests cum devoted fans were requested to form a queue and were shuffled swiftly through as the actor-singer captured selfies with his smartphone.
Donnies and his fans were also accompanied by Sarah Casson, Adjudicator of Guinness World Records to certify the record.
Wahlberg isn’t the only celebrity who had a successful attempt at selfie world record, Dwayne Johnson was also entitled to Guinness selfie world record in May 2015 on the red carpet at the London Premier of his movie San Andreas by clicking a whopping 105 selfies in 3 minutes.
Donnie Wahlberg, 47, made the announcement on twitter on Monday along with a video of the moment.
