2762 «smurfer» feiret verdensrekord i Tyskland

2762 mennesker utkledt som smurfer satte etter alt å dømme verdensrekord i Sør-Tyskland lørdag.

Både voksne og barn deltok.

Det tyske rekordinstituttet har bekreftet antallet, men Guinness World Records har ennå ikke offisielt bekreftet rekorden.

Arrangørene av den smurfeblå begivenheten i Lauchringen sier ifølge Deutsche Welle at kriteriene var å stille opp malt i blått eller i kostyme.

De 2510 studentene fra universitetet i Swansea som innehar rekorden fra 2009, må dermed se seg slått.

De tyske arrangørene prøvde å slå britenes rekord i 2016, men kom den gang til kort med bare 2149 «smurfer».

Smurfene ble skapt på 1950-tallet av den belgiske tegneseriekunsteren Pierre «Peyo» Culliford. Serien er oversatt til 25 språk.

Alle er iført hvit topplue, de beskrives som tre epler høye og tegnes med blå hudfarge og en liten halestump, ifølge Wikipedia.

I Norge førte barneplatene med skuespilleren Geir Børresen på 1970-tallet til at smurfene ble populære 20 år etter starten.
