    Sadly, this record needs to be denied. Guinness recognized a hug with 10,000+ people: http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/records-1000/largest-group-hug/

    Can we change it to Largest Indoor Group Hug?

    This is actually already a record we set at an event somewhere around 60. But maybe we never submitted it. I'll check on that soon.
