Who would willingly choose to do this daring feat?

Salacnib "Sonny" Molina, a man with an unwavering determination to honor a promise made to his dad, has successfully broken this record not once but twice before.

Through the indomitable spirit of his late father and a burning desire to prove that you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it, Sonny embarked on this LEGO-laden journey, again.

What is worse than stepping on Lego bricks?

Walking barefoot on LEGO bricks might sound like the kind of challenge that would make even the bravest souls cringe. But hey, it's all in the name of glory, right?

Besides, there are far worse things to walk on – like fiery hot coals, a sea of thumbtacks, or even a floor littered with half-assembled IKEA furniture (ouch!).


As Sonny prepared for this monumental task, he reminisced about the valuable lessons his dad had taught him.

The elder Molina instilled in Sonny a never-say-die attitude, encouraging him to persevere even when faced with seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

Nothing says "insurmountable" quite like traversing endless stretches of sharp-edged LEGO bricks!
