Gao Guangli, 28-year old man with congenital cerebral palsy, showcased his ability on camera in his home in Tushanqiao Village, Shandong Province on Tuesday. Guangli holds a Guinness world record for the fastest time to make an origami boat with the mouth.

"I've lost count of how many blisters my tongue has gotten and how much paper I have swallowed," said Gao Guangli, who has used his self-taught skill to provide for his mother and himself by selling his creations online.

"I didn't think that he could use his mouth to earn money by himself. I didn't think that he could earn money by himself. I was very happy that he could buy clothes for himself and for me," his mother said.

Upon going viral on the social video platform Kuaishou, Guangli has reportedly appeared on dozens of TV programmes in the country, dazzling the audiences with his ability to create miniature paper cranes, frogs, hearts, boats, rockets and planes.

Speaking of his future plans, Guangli said, "now the plan is to work hard and do well. Then I want to learn to speak, or run a small factory, so that disabled friends can work, so that they have an income."

Guangli set the Guinness world record on December 2, 2017. It took 3 minutes and 34 seconds for Guangli to create an origami boat with his mouth.
