For some it's a stress reliever. But for these students it looks like popping plastic bubble wrap is plain old fun. Three hundred and sixty six students from Hawthorne High School set a new official official Guinness World Records title for the Most People Popping Bubble Wrap at One Time. Eight thousand square feet of the packaging material lined the floor of the gymnasium. Kimberly Patrick, a Guinness World Records judge who observed the event, described the sound as "amazing." "This record attempt today was incredible; officially amazing. The sound was amazing, the energy in the room was amazing. It was just an incredible thing to watch," Patrick said. The record coincides with the anniversary of bubble wrap, which was invented 50 years ago. (Video Source: Reuters)
