Rain failed to dampen the spirits of Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology Patiala students who today created a Guinness Book of World Record by opening a Red Coca Cola Can in one go.
Thapar students broke a record registered in the name of Japan for opening of 1149 cans at one go, achieved by Career Consulting Co., Ltd (Japan) in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan, on 24 January 2016.The attempt was held during their annual New Year party.
Later the city of Bangor, Maine, tried to break Japan’s record of 1149 but fell 28 cans short of breaking the Guinness World Record for most cans opened simultaneously during the town’s Annual Chamber Dinner.
Now Thapar students in collaboration with Coca Cola attempted to break the Guinness Book of World Record as 1400 students participated.
The whole process was video graphed. Only Thapar students were registered for this special event. Students participated with full enthusiasm. Students were given token numbers. Entry in the venue is restricted for registered students only. Every student was given a number and was video graphed while entering the venue.NCC cadets were deputed as observers of the event.
When a student with 1150 number entered at the venue the students started hooting in excitement for, breaking Japan’s record. The students didn’t stop here. They continued to come and want to be a part of this memorable moment.
When the final countdown begins, the students feel excited on at zero count every student opened the can and break the Japan’s record.
The organizer says that now they would submit the footage, records to the authorities and hope that they will get the record breaking certificate within 2-3 months. It’s a first ever attempt made by Thapar students to get or break a World record.
