Breaking Guinness records are just dumb, specifically the large group ones.
Well, Australia's latest record setting performance suddenly has changed my mind and it should go down in history as the best Guinness group record of all time. It even blows away the entertainment value of the funny Simpson fattest town episode too.
Over one thousand women in bikinis gathered on Bondi Beach in Sydney on Wednesday in an attempt to win a spot in the Guinness World Book of Records. They were a mixture of models and local volunteers, and the number exceeded that which organizers had hoped for.
Many wore matching bikinis as they gathered to pose for the world's biggest swimsuit shoot. A total of 1,010 women smashed the previous record of 300.
The shoot will appear in the January issue of Cosmopolitan, on sale Monday December 3, and will also feature in the next edition of the Guinness World Records book, out in September 2008.
Do you wanna read the understatement of 2007? It is not even close.
Guinness World Records representative, Chris Sheedy said the shoot was ''one of the more spectacular world records'' he had been invited to adjudicate.
Checking out 1000 foreign ladies in 2 piece swim suits on a beach SURELY topples the judging experience at the upcoming Guinness record breaking events scheduled in the US for Marbles, Finger Painting, and largest Kazoo band.
Maybe Andrew Bogut was on to something about bashing US culture. And their summer is just beginning.
I would rather be down under too.
Most of the 1010 ladies did not even know what the record was they were trying to beat.
It is OK, you look hot.
Check out the video and enjoy the pictures.
