World's Largest Pillow Fight

Now you’ve got to admit
this is downright silly. In a good way. Some 3659 folks gathered in New Zealand a few days ago, all of them
administered fluffy pillows, with which they engaged in what the Guinness Book of World Records acknowledged was the world’s largest pillow fight , beating the previous
record by 11 um, pillow-fighters.

Now, were all the participants
negligee-clad sorority girls? Alas, no. That really would have made the show worth watching. But despite that drawback,
you have to hand it to the Kiwis, they sure know how to have fun .

goal was to do better than the previous pillow-fighting record of 3648 people, set at the University of Albany, New
York, on April 17, 2005.
