Help Break This World Record At PAX Prime For Kirby’s 25th Anniversary

Posted on August 26, 2012 AT 03:45pm

Did you know that there’s actually a legitimate Guinness Book of World Records entry for “Most People Blowing a Chewing Gum Bubble Simultaneously”? Right now, the current record stands at 304 people, and Nintendo’s going to break it.

At least, they’re going to attempt to do so at PAX Prime in Seattle, Washington this year, but they’ll need a lot of help.

That’s where you come in—if you’re going to be at the Washington State Convention Center on September 1st, 2012, check in with Nintendo at the Expo Hall Queue Area in Room 4A on Level 4 around 1:00 p.m.:

Fans of Nintendo’s classic Kirby™ character will come together for a new Guinness World Records® attempt for the most people blowing a chewing gum bubble simultaneously. At the PAX Prime conference on Sept. 1, these consumers will not only attempt to break the standing record of 304 participants but will also get the chance to win fun prizes, including Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition. The event will help to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Kirby franchise and celebrate the upcoming Sept. 16 launch of Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition for Wii.

Only PAX Prime attendees are invited, though, so make sure to bring your badge.

Everyone there will get a chance to be a part of history, and could even win a copy of Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition. Considering that PAX Prime’s attendance last year was over 70,000, this should be easy.
