1,200 human mattress dominoes set a Guinness World Record

On March 22, 2016, it took 13 minutes and 38 seconds for 1,200 ‘human mattress dominoes’ — meaning humans falling with mattresses like dominoes — to topple in the largest human mattress domino chain on record. The winners: Participants for Aaron’s Inc., an appliance and electronics company, filling two exhibit halls in Maryland with 34 rows. From Guinness:

The mattresses used are now set be donated to charitable groups in the Washington, DC area including A Wider Circle, an organization focused on ending individual and family poverty, and to the Sasha Bruce and Wanda Alston youth homeless shelters.

Speaking after the attempt, Mr Robinson said: “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.”
