Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson proves he’s a champion once more. Just days following the 43-year-old’s honorary acknowledgement as one of Hollywood’s Black elite at the TCL Chinese Theater, the San Andreas star set a Guinness World Record for taking selfies. On Thursday, Johnson hit the premiere for his newest movie in London, where he achieved the record just a week before the film’s May 29 release.

“He attempted to win the Guinness World Records title of the most self-portrait photographs (selfies) taken in three minutes,” the Guinness World Records organization said in a YouTube video posted on Friday, which shows Johnson in all his glory. “Dwayne captured a total of 105 selfies in three minutes on the red carpet with excited movie fans, earning him the Guinness World Records title.”

“London, we did it!” Johnson said, holding a Guinness World Record certificate.

“We just set a NEW GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for most self portraits (selfies) taken in record time (yup, a selfie world record exists and your arm gets a helluva workout). WORLD PREMIERE of SAN ANDREAS and rewriting the record books all in one night. #MicDropBoom #NewSelfieKing #LONDON #SanAndreasWorldTour MAY 29th,” The Rock captioned the above clip, celebrating his win with a mob of screaming fans serving as his background.

The Fast and Furious star joins Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, who earlier this year set the Guinness World Record for most selfies taken in one hour; snapping 1,449 at a high school with students and faculty during the week of the 2015 Super Bowl. Nice!
