Watch This Group Set the World Record for Knocking Books Over Like Dominoes

Most fulfilling two minutes you’ll spend on the Internet today

Watching 5,000 books fall down never looked so good.

A group of employees at the U.K.-based snack company United Biscuits set out to beat the world record for the most books that fell like dominoes at one time in late January. It took a little over two minutes, but the employees were successful in their effort to beat the old record of 4,998 books.

Their set up of 5,500 (182 books were disqualified) spanned an entire room. Though the record was set on Jan. 28, Guinness World Records released the clip on Thursday in honor of World Book Day.
