Get Smurf'd On June 25th And Help Break A Record!

| Filed under: Film FlickersWacky, Tacky & True

Smurf Day 2011

Break out the white pants, white hats, and blue body pain on June 25th, you Smurfs and Smurfettes!

Sony is, in what is completely a marketing move, but could be fun regardless, is asking everyone to group up on that day to break the world record for most Smurfs in a Smurfing gathering of Smurfs!

They've declared it Global Smurfs Day!

We know what you're saying, you're saying, "any number of people dressed as Smurfs would set the record because people don't do that."

Well, you're WRONG:

As it turns out, fans have been staging these gatherings on their own for years. About 1,250 people dressed as Smurfs turned out in Ireland in 2008; 2,510 assembled in a Wales nightclub in 2009. Sony is trying to break that record.

The Smurfs were created in 1958 by the Belgian artist Pierre Culliford, who drew under the name Peyo. Mr. Culliford, who died in 1992, would have turned 83 on June 25.

Inneresting!

Does this sound like something U would do??
