GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Magnum P.I., Ron Burgundy and Ron Swanson would be impressed.
Organizers of an annual laugh festival in Michigan say they've broken the world record for the most people wearing fake mustaches.
Gilda's LaughFest is reporting that 1,544 people donned various shapes and sizes of dark 'staches on Thursday, the festival's opening day in Grand Rapids.
The record is awaiting Guinness World Record certification.
If it sticks, the record would be the third set at the festival in as many years. Last year's kickoff event broke the record for the largest number of people wearing fake animal noses. The year before, it was people tossing rubber chickens.
LaughFest officials say the current record of 648 mustache-wearing participants was set in September at an event organized by the St. Louis Rams.
