245 People Rope-Jump Off A Bridge Simultaneously To Set World Record

Note: Keep your volume in check, loud horn.

This is a video from Hortolandia, Brazil of 245 people rope-jumping (not bungee jumping -- these are just nylon ropes and don't bounce) off a 30-meter (~98-foot) bridge to set a new Guinness World Record for most people doing that simultaneously. Obviously, this was a momentous occassion. From now on people will ask each other if they remember where they were when they saw 245 people rope-jump off a bridge simultaneously to set a new world record, and I can confidently answer I was falling asleep on the shitter in a bathroom stall at work.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Marcus O, who asked me if all my friends jumped off a bridge, would I? Wait -- Josh? That guy's crazy I'm not doing anything he does.

    bloodtrails on the bridge pile ?

  • Nicholas Conrad

    In a way, *they* were the rope.

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    that's how i initially read the title

  • Meh

    I was like, what?! that's kinda high to jump off, not realizing it'd be more bungy.

  • Jeremy Tilton

    "If 245 of your friends jumped off a bridge, would you?"

    "I dunno, mom...MAYBE!?"

    Also, that was terrible synchronization.

    I wonder if it was age related or just some people were distracted. I mean, they nearly created a sine wave.

  • In completely unrelated news, Chiropractors in Hortolandia are suddenly making hand over fist last weekend..

    I misread the title and thought it was a human jump rope.
