They went completely Mentos

After Maker Faire it seems that our friends went on to create the largest Mentos Geyser in history for the Guinness World Records! (pictured here, some of the action by The Enquirer/Jeff Swinger).

A total of 504 Mentos geysers launched on Fountain Square this evening, pointing Cincinnati toward the Guinness Book of World Records for something no one previously had done.

The event lasted mere seconds. After a countdown, the hundreds of poncho-wearing participants pulled a toothpick from a tube that was holding six Mentos, releasing the candies into a 2-liter Diet Coke bottle.

    Video or it didn’t happen

    there are many things that happened that do not have video – i think the evidence here with all the photos and documentation makes it extremely “happened”.

    Maybe it’s me but have Guinness records turned totally stupid? I am waiting on the first lesbian who has received a kidney transplant to solo the highest point east of the Mississippi.

    I work in the 5/3 building which is right on Fountain Square, and saw this setup on my way home. It was pretty amazing, they had a bunch of video cameras and a large video camera on a boom, so there is video somewhere of the entirie event.
