Ultrabook Project: Mexico City World Record Holders

When you hear the name Mexico City, you typically think about its rich culture and proud heritage, but Mexico City has a little-known secret you may be interested to learn: Mexico holds some amazing, and fun, world records.

In fact, Mexicans are obsessed with breaking Guinness World Records. In 2009 alone, they broke or challenged the records for the most mariachi musicians ever gathered in one place, the largest meatball ever cooked, the biggest cheesecake ever baked, the largest group make-out session, the most varieties of tequila on display, and the most people dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” at once.

It’s amazing that Mexicans have achieved so many Guinness World Records. This NY Times article shares more details, or you can search the Guinness World Records web site.

Will.i.am and the Black Eyed Peas hold a world record, too. Their song, I Gotta Feeling, is the #1 downloaded song of all time on iTunes.
