MEXICO CITY – Mexicans have gone crazy for Guinness records as they made an attempt to take the world’s biggest selfie, a record currently held by Georgia, in the United States, whose selfie photo included 2,997 people.
Nearly 2000 participants gathered at the site of a monument in Mexico City and took selfies, one after the other, in the hope of making a world record.
Unfortunately for this attempt at the world’s biggest selfie, Mexico may not be too clear on exactly what record they are trying to beat. Kristen Ott, PR Manager for Guinness World Records, said that “there’s no current title holder for what Mexico’s trying to do.”
Guinness World Records has yet to announce whether or not Mexico City set the record for the world’s largest selfie.
It is pertinent to mention here that in 2007, a photographer Spencer Tunick took a picture of 18,000 naked people in Mexico City’s main square, which doubled the record set in Spain.
Fast-forwarding in time to 2009, Mexico’s capital city made the Guinness World Records for the largest dance ever to see Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” song, which featured 13,597 participants dancing about in horror costumes around the Revolution Monument.
The year 2014 was also when Mexico’s world’s biggest selfie photo featured 40,000 people kissing for the camera in order to break the record for the world’s biggest kiss group.
