           Most Mentos and Soda Fountains -broken!

[May 25] Mentos and the performance artists of Eepybird have made Mentos Geyser history in Cincinnati with a big splash. Eepybird, with the help of about 500 Greater Cincinnatians equipped with the new "Mentos Geyser Loading Tube," launched the largest number of Mentos Geysers ever to be set off all at once in one location, setting a world record.

    The event lasted mere seconds. After a countdown, the hundreds of poncho-wearing participants pulled a toothpick from a tube that was holding six Mentos, releasing the candies into a 2-liter Diet Coke bottle. Geysers went up and soda pop came down on Fountain Square. Everyone dispersed and workers from Downtown Cincinnati Inc. set about hosing down the square with soap and water.

    The new world record set was 504 Mentos Geysers. Hundreds of other Mentos fans watched the amazing event at Cincinnati's landmark Fountain Square.

    Eepybird became famous in Summer 2006 with their Mentos Geyser video, "Experiment #137," a quirky homage to the "Bellagio Fountain" in Las Vegas. (You can see the video at     The Eepybird performers lead the crowd in creating 504 synchronized Mentos Geysers, creating the first-ever Guinness World Record for "Most Mentos and Soda Fountains."

     "What could be fresher than setting a new world record?" said Pete Healy, Vice President Marketing at Perfetti Van Melle USA, distributor of Mentos."We were thrilled to see so many Mentos fans turn out for the bubbly fun!"
