Hugging is mostly considered one of the best expressions of affection. But for these 79 kids who got a hug from Hyderabad resident Krishna Kumar, it’ll be a hilarious memory for a lifetime.
Kumar, who stood with his arms wide open, decided to make a Guinness World Record for hugging the most number of people in a minute and well, he did it. He hugged 79 kids standing in a queue to get that special hug. The hilarious hug-a-thon, i.e. the speed-hugging challenge comprised of 88 students who were in a queue and all waiting for their hug from Kumar. He attempted to hug 83 kids but couldn’t. The most hilarious moment in the video is when Mr. Kumar is standing in a different posture and hugging the students.
According to the rules, a genuine hug will be counted only when both arms are wrapped around the other person in a close embrace. Previously, the Guinness World Record for the most hugs given in a minute by an individual was 77, which was achieved by Carrie Bickmore from Australia.
Well, if hugging were to be an event at the Olympics, we now know who will get the gold medal.
