record breakers: November 2011 Archives

If we hadn't brushed up on our zombie-survival skills, this could have really scared us… meet the world's biggest Zombie walk.

Thousands of undead zombies (or people dressed as them) have wandered through Mexico City this weekend in a bid to set a new world record.

Covered with suitable amounts of fake blood and gore nearly 10,000 people are said to have taken part in the event aimed to take peoples minds off economic stress.

Artist Joe Hill was commissioned by Reebok Crossfit to create the massive and record breaking 1160.45m² painting of a waterfall and plunging cliffs.

Speaking of his record Joe said: "I am absolutely over the moon to have broken not one but two Guinness World Records for the longest and largest anamorphic painting!

"As a London based artist it is really special to create this artwork in the heart of the city and also to be able to bring the world records for 3D art back home to Britain where 3D art first started."

British inventors Edd China (Toilet, 42.25 mph); Colin Furze (Mobility Scooter, 71.59 mph); and Perry Watkins (Smallest Car, measuring 41 in high and 26 in wide, 30 mph) raced against one another.

The race at at West India Quay, London, was won by the world's fastest mobility scooter.

The 91-year-old celebrated gaining a place in the record books by performing a series of poses at Mainlands Retirement Community Centre in Pinellas Park, Florida.

After being presented with her certificate by Guinness World Records, Bernice said: "I’m truly overwhelmed.  I’ll continue with Yoga for as long as I can."
