GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (March 8, 2013)--Organizers of an annual laugh festival in Michigan, Gilda's LaughFest, say they've broken the world record for the most people wearing fake mustaches after 1,544 people donned various shapes and sizes Thursday.
The record is awaiting Guinness World Record certification.
If it sticks, the record would be the third set at the festival in as many years.
Last year's kickoff event broke the record for the largest number of people wearing fake animal noses and the year before for the most people tossing rubber chickens.
LaughFest officials say the current record of 648 mustache-wearing participants was set in September at an event organized by the St. Louis Rams.
