Egypt made an entry to Guinness World Records with a mosaic of Tutankhamun’s mask, using cups of coffee! With 7,260 cups used, the painting extended 60 meters square. This attempt comes as part of promoting the opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) in Cairo, where the attempt took place on Saturday.
According to Al Masry Al Youm, young men and women with disabilities also helped attempt this world record. Coffee, in particular, was chosen because it is considered as a welcoming drink. However, Guinness World Records is yet to announce whether Egypt’s attempt had garnered success or not.
The current world record was created in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. “Consisting of 5,642 cups of coffee in 10 different shades, the caffeinated creation depicted the face of Elvis Presley in a space of 4.9 m x 7.6 m (16 ft x 25 ft). Each coffee cup contained at least 200ml of coffee and milk.”
