It was relatively obvious why hundreds of people were dressing up as Albert Einstein last month. They were gathering to smash a world record… of people dressing up as Albert Einstein. Yes, it’s a thing. And yes, they broke the record!
Fans of the late theoretical physicist dressed up in his likeness to beat the world record (yes, there was already one) of 319 people dressing up as Einstein in a single gathering. The get-together was held in Los Angeles and was put on to raise money for Schools on Wheels, a homeless children’s education group.
While the recent group of Einstein fanatics did in fact break the world record, no official count has been released.
