A bulldog broke the Guinness World Record for the “longest human tunnel traveled through by a skateboarding dog” today in Lima.

Otto, the bulldog owned by Lima residents Robert Rickards and Luciana Viale, was placed on a skateboard facing downhill on a sidewalk in the Malecon park of Miraflores to perform the feat.

“The 3-year-old pooch valiantly skated through the legs of 30 humans, who all faced the same direction and stood with their feet apart to allow the talented English Bulldog to pass freely through the human tunnel without being led or touched,” reads the Guinness World Records website.

Rickards and Viale set up a Facebook page to upload pictures and video of “Otto Bulldog Skater.” According to the page which has over 23,000 Likes, Otto can skate, skimboard, sandboard, and surf.

“This all started as a game,” Rickards said.

“Thank you all for helping me achieve my dream, to bring this title to Peru!” reads an update on Otto’s Facebook page. “I could not have done it without you, especially the 30 brave men and women who made the tunnel.”
