Guinness World Records Day on YouTube

Every year Guinness World Records marks 12 months of record breaking with a day dedicated to all things extreme, encouraging mere mortals to join the likes of the world’s tallest man, Sultan Kosen, in the book’s pages – which in itself holds the record for biggest-selling copyright publication.



As a result, not only can you see some examples of World Records on the YouTube homepage, but Guinness World Records has arranged a number of mass World Record attempts around the globe that you are encouraged to join:









“The whole point of today is that anyone around the world can attempt to break a Guiness World Record,” explains Craig Glenday, Editor-in-Chief of the Guinness World Records book. “Myself, I’ve been trying to rustle up some participants for a mass hug in St Pancras International, and we’ll hopefully lasso some early commuters today to take part. Sadly I can’t join in – the adjudicators and I must remain independent and impartial. So fingers crossed we get enough people.”



If you aren’t in the London, record attempts are planned from Sydney to Memphis, Helsinki to New York. You can find out more at www.guinnessworldrecords.com.



“It’s free to set or break a Guinness World Record,” continues Craig, “so why not be inspired and try to get your name in the next edition of the book? Check out the videos on our YouTube channel and have a flick through the new 2010 book for ideas.”



Here’s hoping you enjoy today’s Spotlight. You never know: you too could become a Record Breaker in 2010.



Have fun,


Jamie Dolling, Community Editor, YouTube UK, recently watched “Chilli Challenge”.

The world records used to be about real achievements. But now it's come down to people doing simple things without effort getting famous. When there is decent hard working people out there that actually work and make the effort to achieve greatness. I look at the video thumbnail, what is that guy holding the record for drinking the most wine? Anyone can do that. We should be rewarding people who make an effort.
