A Czech performer of bubble art surrounded 275 high school students and a car with a single soap-bubble screen on Wednesday, breaking the national record.

Matěj Kodeš raised the screen around a rectangular 11 metre-by-7.5 meter area, enclosing those inside for a few seconds.

Participants had to be taller than 156 centimeters to fulfill the conditions for the event, which was supervised by a representative from the Czech Book of Records, who declared it a new record.

Kodeš, who has performed since 2008, achieved a Guinness World Record in 2014 for “most people inside a soap bubble”, which at that time stood at 214.
