275,000 Dominoes, a spiraling 2013 world record

Watch more with these video collections:

275,000 dominoes toppled toward a 2013 Guinness World Record with the help of German company Sinners Domino Entertainment:

Last Friday we successfully toppled 272,297 out of 277,275 dominoes under the theme “Enjoy Your Life” at the Wilhelm-Lückert-Gym in Büdingen. After Wolfgang Naumann started the chain reaction, we immediately broke the world record for the most dominoes toppled in a spiral. Furthermore there were six areas with different motives and mechanisms.

There’s a tiny little plane involved. And pyramids. And pixel-style photos, walls of words, shelves, cascading walls, sliding hats, an aquarium with a connecting build during the world record attempt… Really, I could keep going.

The video is ten minutes long, which is long, but not as long as the eight days it took 12 builders to set it up.
