UPDATED April 11, 2008: The Rutgers students were successful in breaking the Guinness World Record for the Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Ninja Turtles, gathering more than 700 students dressed as chelonian shinobi to do it. The event was sponsored by Rutgers Residence Life and Rutgers Recreation to “encourage students to come together and complete a goal.” A representative revealed that the initial idea was to break the world record for “Largest Gathering of Smurfs.”
