World record for domino drop shot broken in Dubai

A bar in Dubai has broken the Guinness World Record for the longest domino drop shot.

A domino drop shot is where a shot glass drops its contents into another glass.

The Huddle Sports Bar and Grill successfully 'dropped' 4,578 glasses of Camros whiskey into Bazooka energy drink, according to Seyda Subasi Gemici, an official adjudicator for Guinness World Records.

Gemici said she had to deduct 1,570 glasses of the prepared 6,328 glasses, because they did not fall according to the official guidelines.

The glasses crashed into each other for 55 seconds, with Ahamd Taher, the food and beverage manager at Citymax Hotels pushing over the first glass.

Over 160 employees were involved in the preparations for the record-breaking attempt which was five months in the making.

The previous record-holder was the Bahama-based location of the chain Senor Frog, which got 4,107 of its 4,109 shot glasses to fall correctly in February 2013.
