Canadians Break Record for Most Selfies Taken in One Hour

421 Canadians came together this week to break the Guiness World Record for “the most selfies taken in one hour.”

On the shores of Lake Ontario, amongst Canada Day celebrations, Degrassi star Melinda Shankar posed for selfies with fellow Canadians at a rate of five per minute to break the record and make Canadian history.

“I am pleased to officially declare that Canadians … have successfully broken this selfie record,” said Philip Robertson, an adjudicator with Guiness World Records. “On Canada’s birthday, these Canadians gave their country the gift of a world record.”
