If you Moustache...it's official!

1,957 people sat in the Moustache Zone and donned peel-and-stick moustaches made of synthetic hair as part of an attempt to break the existing Guinness World Record for "Largest Gathering of People Wearing False Moustaches." The last record of 1,532 was set in March of 2013 at Gilda's LaughFest in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

We have received confirmation from Guinness that indeed, we are "OFFICIALLY AMAZING" and are now part of an elite group of Guinness World Records title holders.  

If you were one of our false moustache-wearers and would like a Certificate of Participation, you may purchase one through the Guinness World Records Store online using the following participant codes:
