All a group of German domino enthusiasts wanted was to break a Guinness world record, when a meddling fly had to come and ruin the whole thing.
Patrick Sinner and his team of 20 set up a massive chain of over 600,000 dominoes . . . and it took them two whole weeks to do it. All it took was one unassuming fly to land on the mini-dominoes, which are described as being the size of a fingernail, setting off the cascade ahead of schedule.
Luckily their hard work didn’t completely go to waste — they still broke Guinness records for largest spiral and largest domino cube. Yay!
