Switzerland Dan Acher


Geneva, Romandie, Switzerland / August 1, 2011

Dan Acher set up 499 flags inside mouse traps and set off a domino chain, with the flags triggering the mouse traps.This record was created for the Swiss National Day celebration in Geneva and was inspired by an OK GO video.

- must set off a single trap to begin chain
- chain must continue unbroken throughout attempt
- may not reset or restart chain

    I like the record itself, as well as the video very much. It was just the firemen I was curious about.

    Dan Rollman, the inspiration came from a small segment of an (awesome) OK GO video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qybUFnY7Y8w It took quite a few days to get the system working correctly and a couple of days to prepare all the mouse traps...

    Hi there, Simon This i an official festival with the presence of the City maire and all. Completely true though, they are pushing it with the over numbered firemen. They take it as a kind of exercice and public presence.

    Somewhat tame, with all the firemen there before anything got started. Just saying.
