Apparently, all you have to do to break a world record is tip over a mattress. OK, well, lots of mattresses. And you physically have to be on top of them as they fall. A group of employees at Bensons for Beds in England has done just that. The 41 participants are awaiting confirmation from the Guinness Book of World Records, but they think they’ve set the record for the largest game of mattress dominoes ever played. And since there is no other documented and submitted game of “mattress dominoes,” there’s a pretty good chance they’ll win. Thankfully, the group not only sent their video in to Guinness but also posted it on YouTube. Please enjoy their awesomely creative take on a classic game. With a surprise twist at the end!

If all 500 runners drop trough tonight, they will officially break the world record for the “largest gathering of people wearing underpants” currently held by the 146 English men who depants-ed last month. Runners who finish the 1.7 mile run, appropriately led by NY mayor candidate, The Naked Cowboy, will win a pair of boxers, further encouraging their undie exercise. But for some athletes in tonight’s run, not only are they breaking a world record, they are also warming up for the Nautica NYC Triathlon happening on Sunday. [Huffington Post]
