Thanks to the hard work of Nintendo and fans of Kirby who attended this glorious moment at PAX Prime, the previous record of 304 simultaneousÂ bubble gum bubbles being blown was broken and set at 536 simultaneous bubble gum bubbles being blown!Â The new world record added to the growing excitement about Kirby at PAX Prime last Saturday, where attendees had an early chance to experienceKirby’s Dream Collection: Special EditionÂ for the Wii. The game will be released on September 16th.
“Kirby is no ordinary character, so it’s not a surprise that his fans would go to extraordinary lengths to mark his 20th anniversary,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Nintendo is proud to have such a dedicated and enthusiastic following. Between this new world record and the upcoming launch of Kirby’sÂ Dream Collection: Special Edition, it’s turning out to be one heck of an anniversary party.”
According to Guinness World Records, the previous record was 304 participants, achieved by Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Oct. 27, 2010. Participants in the Kirby-themed record attempt were instructed to chew their gum for at least one minute and then blow and hold bubbles for 30 seconds.
