Thousands of people gathered in France to try a record despite the corona virus epidemic that continues in many countries of the world. Over 3,500 people came together with the Smurfs costume for the world’s biggest Smurfs event.

The Smurfs are among the most loved cartoon characters of many people’s childhood. The Smurfs fans in France continue their admiration to the cartoon to such an important level that, despite the corona virus epidemic, they came together to try to sign a record.

On Saturday, 3,549 people tried to break the Guinness Record by wearing the Smurf costume in the Landerneau region of France. The event record with the most Smurfs cosplayers is currently in Germany. People who gather in the Landerneau want to break this record.

The video, published by the AFP news agency, contains images of thousands of Smurf costume. The video contains images as if they were taken from the smurfs village of the real world.

An event participant said, “Not worrying, we have not given up our record attempt as the French people. Now we are world champions. ” Despite the enthusiastic statements of the participant, the Guinness committee has not yet confirmed the record. Guinness powers continue to review to confirm the record.

In the statement made from the Guinness Records, it was stated that the initiative has not been recorded yet. As Guinness referees did not attend the event, organizers are required to send record evidence to the board. Guinness officials decide for 15 weeks after the evidence is sent.

Despite the Corona virus epidemic, the fact that such an event was organized may be a reason for discussion. Landerneau Mayor Patrick Leclerc said in a statement regarding the risk of corona virus outbreak, “We should not stop living. We have a chance to say that we are alive. ”

The Corona virus has now infected more than 100,000 people in many countries around the world. The spread of the virus has still not been stopped. For this reason, it is necessary to think about organizing crowded events for a while as in Landerneau. It is an indisputable fact that the virus will infect a large number of people in such environments.
