To promote her new show on Fuse, Big Freedia: Queen of the Bounce, Big Freedia and over 350 people got together in Herald Square in NYC, stuck their asses out and twerked until they beat the Guinness World Record for most people simultaneously twerking at one time. Big Freedia is the New Orleans bounce queen and she’s (call her “she” or “he,” just call her) and started twerking long before Billy Ray Cyrus’ plastic bag and rubber band condom broke and Miley was made, so if anyone should set the record it’s her. Guinness set the rules and didn’t play around with that shit. The rules were:

It’s not every Wednesday afternoon that you get to witness monumental moments in history, but today was certainly a special one. Earlier today, I made my way up to Herald Square to partake in the Guinness World Record attempt of most simultaneous twerkers. The Twerkathon was of course organized by the pioneering New Orleans bounce queen, Big Freedia, aka Queen Diva along with her ass-shaking sidekicks. For two minutes, Guinness Records officials paced through a crowd of 350-plus diverse popping butts. Everyone from grandmas to construction workers participated, and in the end, it was all a success.
