Guinness World Record @SkittlesSelfie

Over 400 people joined with Degrassi celebrity @MelindaShankar in #Toronto and officially broke the record for the most number of selfies in one hour. The Guinness World Records rep shows fans how to pose before the start of the official self portrait attempt and the star crushed the previous record.
"On the shores of Lake Ontario, amongst Canada Day celebrations bursting with national pride, Shankar posed for Selfies with fellow Canadians at a rate of five per minute to break the record and make Canadian history. "I am pleased to officially declare that Canadians, with the help of Skittles, have successfully broken this Selfie record," said Philip Robertson, an adjudicator with GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS. "On Canada's birthday, these Canadians gave their country the gift of a world record. That's a pretty sweet present."

On July 1 , 2014 Harbourfront Centre had plenty of entertainment to celebrate Canada's birthday with buskers, bands and the Natrel Pond full of rental watercraft. A tent set up in the south common exhibition area held the stage where people signed up to pose with Melinda and pick up free Wrigley Skittles and Skittles bandannas. Starting around 6:30 pm the crowd then proceeded to get next to Melinda while she took the photo with a smartphone. You can see all the photos on their website here.
"Canadian Selfie enthusiasts lined up patiently for their chance to be part of the historic record attempt and help break a world record in Canada, on Canada Day. "I love my fans' passion for a good Selfie," said Shankar, "and I was so excited to help Skittles capture the Selfie spirit and make Canadian history."
Excitement builds and the Guinness rep reads the official rules
