People have too much time on their hands. That’s one conclusion you could come to, at least, after watching this video of the official largest instance of human dominoes.
Aaron’s, the Maryland furniture store, used the occasion of their annual manager’s meeting to shatter the pre-existing world record. They lined up more than 1,200 people — each shielded by a mattress– and then stood back as they progressively knocked each other over. The whole debacle lasted 13 minutes and 38 seconds; the mattresses were donated to various D.C. area charities.
If reading about this event makes you hanker for your very own spot in the record books, consider signing up for the World’s Largest Game of Telephone, which will (hopefully) take place at the Walters next month.
