Largest custard pie fight: Drake University sets world record (HD Video)
DES MOINES, IA, USA -- Nearly 700 students joined the custard pie fight in the Drake University Olmsted Center parking lot - setting the new world record the largest custard pie fight,
during an event organized by the "Dogtown After Hours" alcohol-free program.
To qualify for the record, the fruit-pie-flinging frenzy will have to last at least 60 seconds, which wasn't a problem.
He says the Guinness World Records officials have strict requirements on certain elements of the record-breaking attempt. "You would think that a pie fight would require each person to have one pie," Larson says.
"Their rules stipulate that each person has to have a minimum of two pies. The original amount that we thought, around 800 pies, we had to double and that increased our costs.
