600 space hoppers on the Millennium Bridge
On April 15 2007 A bizarre sight greeted those out for a Sunday morning
Bankside stroll as 600 people on space hoppers filled the Millennium Bridge
for a world record attempt.
The publicity stunt was staged by UKTV Gold to promote its new look which features
600 people on specially produced gold space hoppers bounced simultaneously for a
minute in a bid to beat the previous record of 551 people.
"I'm delighted with the fantastic turnout today and chuffed to bits to have broken
the Guinness World Record," said UKTV's James Newton.
"It was truly an amazing sight as hundreds of people bounced over the bridge on
gold space hoppers and a perfect way to celebrate our new look and host of
exciting new shows."
