New World Record: 26 People in a MINI


Let’s be honest. The back seat in the MINI is a bit diminutive. However, that didn’t stop members of the Pilobolus Dance Company from cramming a world record-breaking 26 people into a standard MINI Cooper. That’s with doors shut and the roof closed, people. It’s quite a feat of human acrobatics. They don’t even fold the rear seats down. You can watch the video here and remember, the safety word is “pineapple.” (Video after the break)

    I really enjoyed watching that. The white skin-tight suits was a nice touch. What’s the point? Who cares…

  • JackMac

    Saw this last week from an EMC insider. How long with that record last, now that the MINI Cooper Countryman is available 😉

  • Steve

    No wheel gap with 26 people sitting in the car.

  • Bilbo Bagginjs

    Countryman would be a totally different record.

    Just Amazing! Congratulations to EMC and the Pilobolus Dance Company. Well done!

  • Bilbo Bagginjs

    I think that they might have exceeded the maximum load limit by just a little.

    Surprised that they didn’t put blocks under the jack points.

  • Dude

    I think I saw one guy… Lucky guy…;-)

  • Gabe

    My thoughts exactly.

    yes, 25 thin and flexible girls + one volunteer

    Amazing dancers and Yoga people. Can’t see this being beat unless they get Mini-Me and a few of his fellow little people. This type of fun is more acceptable than the clown who won the MINI in later article.

    Well, this certainly oughta qualify them for the carpool lane!

    But, who’s the driver?

  • Chris Banuchi

    I always think: “so what?” to stuff like this…
