NEW YORK, Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Three, Two, One...Happy New Year! This year, party revelers can celebrate more than the New Year by kissing their way to a new Colgate® Wisp® Guinness World Records® record. On December 31, 2009 couples in ten cities across the U.S. will prepare for the New Year's "Midnight Kiss" with Colgate® Wisp®, the first of its kind single use mini toothbrush, as they attempt to set a new Guinness World Records record for the most couples kissing simultaneously in multiple locations.
Setting the Record...With a Kiss
Hundreds of couples will be prepping for the "Midnight Kiss" as they attempt the Colgate Wisp Guinness World Records record. In order to set the new record, at the stroke of midnight (Central Standard Time) 20 couples in ten different locations will need to simultaneously kiss. This is the first "most people kissing simultaneously" record attempt during which a Guinness World Records® Adjudicator will be present to immediately certify the record, expected to be attained at sometime between 11:45 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. (CST). An announcement to the local, national and international press will be made shortly thereafter by Guinness World Records.
Couples will be eligible for the Guinness World Records attempt by attending a New Year's Eve party hosted by New Year's Nation. New Year's Nation connects thousands of people in multiple cities on the biggest night of the year by hosting simultaneous New Year's Eve parties across four time zones. Visit www.NewYearsNation.com for additional event details.
