They're the biggest group of pushovers in history. Eight-hundred and fifty people, knocking each other to the ground. It's an attempt at setting the largest human mattress domino record. With unwavering determination, the participants in New Orleans, Louisiana, fall to beat the previous record of 550, set last year in Belgium. With this many people it takes a while before the chain reaches its end -- several minutes. But it ended on a red carpet, with this man, who was chosen to be the final domino. There is more to this event then just being... historic. The mattresses will be donated to benefit local communities. Elly Park, Reuters.
