CASPER, Wyo. – The record for the world’s longest uninterrupted chain of beard has been broken by at least 80 feet.

Facial hair enthusiasts gathered at Gaslight Social, a bar in Casper, Wyoming, to see if they could beat the Guinness World Record set in 2007.

With the required minimum 8-inch beard, the competitors stood side by side at the bar with beards attached. The completed beard chain measured 150 feet long, according to The Casper Star-Tribune.

According to the Star-Tribune, the group shattered the previous record of 62 feet, 6 inches, set in Germany 15 years earlier.

The event occurred on the sidelines of the National Beard and Moustache Championships, which took place Saturday at the city’s Ford Wyoming Center, according to The Associated Press.
