#MattressTags: How to set a world record
A record that kept falling...and falling
Guinness confirmed the July 23 human/mattress domino chain that included 2016 participants as a world record.
Ayd Home Furnishings teamed with Chinese mattress maker Stylution and the Association of Taiwan Investment Enterprises to put on the event, which coincided with the retailer's 24th anniversary. Following the festivities, Stylution donated 300 mattresses to a local charity that helps people affected by flooding.
In all, there were 2016 people strapped to mattresses in a 4 kilometer chain that wrapped multiple times around a shopping mall. It bested the previous record, of around 1,200 participants, set four months ago by Aaron's.
According the Guinness, the human mattress dominoes took 14 minutes 47 seconds from start to finish.
