It was only last year that 398 college students in London set a new a Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people dressed as Spider-Man, but it looks like that crown has already been snatched away.
Although there’s been no official proclamation from Guinness, The Sydney Morning Herald reports the record was broken Tuesday as part of a charity event organized by an Australian recruiting agency. Hundreds of adults and children clad as the wall-crawler filed into the City Recital Hall, where they had to sit in full costume for five minutes, in keeping with Guinness criteria.
The Spideys were tallied by official counters, who in turn were witnessed by justices of the peace. The result: 440 Spider-Man (and -women, and -children). Organizers are now awaiting official notification from Guinness.
