1200 People Help Topple World Record For Biggest Game of Mattress Dominoes
Who knew there was a record for the largest human mattress dominoes?
Twelve hundred people recently pitched in to set the world record for human mattress dominoes.
The feat took place at the annual managers' meeting for Aaron’s Inc. electronics and was accomplished after all the human dominoes fell on the first try in 13 minutes, 28 seconds.
According to Guinness World Records, a dominoes expert was on hand in Maryland's Gaylord National Resort and Conference Center to set up 34 rows of mattresses manufactured by Woodhaven Industries, which is owned by Aaron’s.
The first mattress was pushed over by Aaron’s CEO John Robinson. The mattresses will be donated to needed families in the Washington, DC area.
“Breaking a Guinness World Records title has been a great team building event for the associates we have attending our National Managers meeting," Robinson told reporters.

“The significance of this event is that through the generosity of our manufacturing plant, Woodhaven, and our ACORP stores, we are able to provide 1,200 beds to needy families in the D.C. area."
The previous record of 1,150 participants was set by German company Höffner Möbelgesellschaft GmbH & Co. KG back in 2012.
The record was first set by 80 people at the Channel Nine studios in Sydney, Australia in 2009.
