    Added the suggested rule that "may not hug any person more than once." Rob, please alert me if that's incorrect. Awesome job!

    A good attempt :) and great that you had all different people :) well done! Not sure if both people put their arms completely around each other though??

    Yeah, this category is a weird middle ground. If we change to "Most Hugs Given In One Minute" (and even if we add "must hug more than one person as a rule"), this has the potential to devolve into a video of someone hugging two people back and forth (way easier than what these people are currently doing.)

    I'd prefer to see someone set this record properly, hugging no individual person more than once. Once we see such a video, we can add the rule that "may not hug any person more than once."

    This is my dream record to break. hah. What sort of event was this at? And I agree with Simon's old comment. Since you hugged people more than once each, it should be most hugs given. And maybe one of the rules is there has to be more than one person? Thoughts?

    The record says: "most people hugged in a minute" but aren't the huggers being re-used? Wouldn't that make the record, "Most hugs given in a minute" instead?
