There’s a new world record for biggest pillow fight, ever, thanks to MyPillow and a bunch of Christians.
MyPillow, which is headquartered in Chaska and manufactured in Shakopee, donated over 70,000 MyPillows to attendees at The Pulse, a Minneapolis Christian evangelism event, May 18 for a massive pillow fight. Guinness Book of World Records were at the event, and early Saturday put the official count at 7,681, due to strict guidelines, despite the stadium full of pillow-fighters.
The free event featured Grammy Award-winning artist Lecrae, Hillsong Young & Free, Tye Tribbett, dancers the Jabbawockeez and a message from Pulse founder Nick Hall.
MyPillow founder Mike Lindell, who was among the speakers, hoped 66,000 people would partake in the pillow fight. The previous pillow fight record was set in 2015, when 6,261 people had a MyPillow fight at a St. Paul Saints game.
