Calling All Superheroes: Megamind Attempts To Break Guinness World Record– With Your Help!
Not happy with just being one of the funniest actors in the last few years, Will Ferrell wants to do more than make you laugh. He wants to set world records. But, just like Ricky Bobby needed Cal, and Ron Burgundy needed Brick, Champ, and the Bri-Man… Megamind needs you!
In his attempt to set the world record for the most superheros assembled in a single spot, Will Ferrell and DreamWorks Animation are asking all willing and able-bodied cosplayers in the L.A. area to come out. If Will can assemble 1,501 participants to show up in recognizable super-hero costumes (that means Batman, Superman, Spider-Man… not your indie character ‘Can’t-Get-A-Date-Man’ or his sidekick ‘Emo, the Kid Crier’) he will set a new world record. Will knows it takes time to assemble all those bits to your utility belt, and drop a few pounds to fit into your leotard… but you only have days. Saturday, October 2nd, at the L.A. Live Complex, at 10 AM is the call. Will you answer it?
Dust off your favorite codpiece and cape combo, and go party with (hopefully) 1,501 other costumed vigilantes. Sources close to ComicMix assure you this isn’t a plot by Megamind (of the upcoming DreamWorks movie) to capture heroes and remove potential threats. It’s just a friendly get together. There even might be punch and pie. But don’t quote us on that.
Tip of the hat to AICN for turning our heads.
