Employees of an energy company, Nexus, have broken the previous Guinness World Record for the “Largest Gathering of People Dressed As Batman”, which was 250. Downtown Calgary saw a huge gathering of 542 people dressed as Batman. All of these people are employees at Nexus. The gathering was a part of the United Way’s superhero-themed 2014 fundraising campaign.
Karen Young, vice-president and chief operating officer of the United Way of Calgary and Area commented on the occasion:
When we know we’re united to do good, we have the power to make a difference.
Nexus has been supporting the fundraising campaign from past 20 years, and has collected over $17 million during this period.
The official from ‘Guinness World Records’ inspected all 542 dresses and ensure the gathering stood still for five minutes. Soon, the scene transformed into a Batman dance party. Bane was also spotted in the gathering. Well, Christian Bale should have been here.
