You have seen many domino videos online but I am sure you have never seen anything like this ever before, Can you think of what 1,200 people with 1,200 mattresses and 70,000 square feet of space would do and how fun of a domino effect can be created? They would break the Guinness World Record of the longest and fastest Human Mattress Dominoes effect.
“Breaking a Guinness World Records title has been a great team building event for the associates we have attending our National Managers meeting. The significance of this event is that through the generosity of our manufacturing plant, Woodhaven, and our ACORP stores, we are able to provide 1,200 beds to needy families in the D.C. area. Our associates had great fun participating and knowing their efforts support our mission of giving back to our communities.”
These 1,200 people were Aaron’s Inc. employees who took onto mattresses set up over 70,000 square feet of space in two exhibit halls at National Harbor, Maryland, USA. Next, they all collapsed in a domino effect to take the Guinness World Record away from German company Höffner, which set the record in 2012 with 1,150 participants.
“Mass participation records like these are pretty complicated,” says Kristen Ott, public relations manager for Guinness World Records North America.
