World Record Pillow Fight Attempt Disintegrates Into Raging Slug Fest
on 4/4/2005 (0)
ST LOUIS, MO - This weekend, Saint Louis University set out to break the Guinness World Record for the “World’s Largest Pillow Fight.” On Friday night, 1,211 participants traded pillow punches during a student retreat at the YMCA Trout Lodge in Potosi, Mo. The pillow fight was part of the “Billiken Road Trip,” a retreat to help freshmen make new friends and interact with classmates away from campus.

According to freshman Joe Balint, however,
"Everything was going fine for a minute or so, and then some goon senior pushed down a freshman, and the freshman whacked him in the head with his pillow and caught him in the forehead with a zipper. When the senior realized he was bleeding, he threw his pillow down and starting savagely pummeling the living crap outta the freshman with his bare fists. Chaos ensued, pillows were tossed aside, and the pillow fight record attempt tragically turned into a mad fist fight record attempt instead."
The students, hoping to top Duke University’s record of 1,074 participants set last March, set a new open-air fisticuffs record instead, easily surpassing the bar brawl scene from Smokey and the Bandit set in 1977.n
