Fresno State marketing students hope more than 300 people will show up today (Dec. 5) from 1-5 p.m. at the University Courtyard residence halls on campus to help them break the “The Longest Selfie Chain” World Guinness Record. The current selfie chain record stands at 283 people. The free, public event will be held south of the University Dining Hall between Baker Hall and the Ponderosa Suites and will feature vendors and a DJ. Once the line is set, the actual photo capture is expected to take about an hour. Participants must bring their own camera phone. The selfies are done in relay fashion with the first person shooting the person next to them, who then shoots with the person next to them and continuing until complete. A preliminary announcement of the attempt results (how many attempted the record) will be made at about 4 p.m., pending progress of the shoot. Over the weekend, the students will compile the final evidence required for final validation. Guinness typically notifies organizers several weeks after the evidence is submitted if the record attempt will be entered. A drawing for prizes will follow the 4 p.m. preliminary announcement of goal results. Public parking is in Lot P-27 (enter at Scott from Cedar Ave., north of Shaw). A $3 daily permit is required (until 4 p.m. Fridays) and available at dispensers in the lot. INFO: Kevin Sweetman at 916.801.8777 or Sara Sombat 310.430.2679. Original press release.
