850 people break ‘Human Mattress Dominoes’ record

Considering how often new world records are set these days, people are now trying to find the most obscure of challenges to get some attention. It worked for New Orleans recently, when 850 people volunteered to break the Guinness World Record for the largest number of people taking part in human dominoes.

The previous world record was held by Belgium, achieved in 2011 with 550 people.

The Americans surely showed them how to break records with their ‘king-sized’ attempt (pun intended). Before you shrug this off as a cheap publicity stunt, note that the mattresses used will be donated to various charities across New Orleans.
