Japan Sets World Record for Most Synchronized Dancing Mascots [VIDEO]

Last weekend, 141 costumed mascots in Japan attempted to break the world record for the largest group of synchronized costumed dancing. And they did it! The group, called yuru-kyara, danced to “The Beard Dance,” by joke rock band, The Drifters, in Sasebo. For the group to qualify for the record, all members had to complete the dance with 95% accuracy. The first two tries failed to meet expectations, but the third attempt saw the costumed group succeed, and yuru-kyara broke the previously standing (I have no idea who else attempted this beforehand) Guinness World Record!

Watch a video of the dancing below. Crazy cute Japan…
