CALLING ALL TWERKERS, SHAKERS AND HISTORY MAKERS: JOIN FUSE AND BIG FREEDIA AS THEY TAKE OVER HERALD SQUARE TO SET GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® TITLE WITH LARGEST NUMBER OF PEOPLE TWERKING ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 AT NOON.
“BIG FREEDIA: QUEEN OF BOUNCE” TO PREMIERE WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2 AT 11PM ET ON FUSE
New York, NY (September 2013) - Fuse announced today that it will be hosting Record Breaking Booty Shaking: Break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® Twerk Record with Big Freedia, a never-before-attempted large-scale twerking event on Wednesday, September 25 in connection with the upcoming launch of brand new original series Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce. While twerking has recently gone mainstream and created quite the pop culture phenomenon, the dance actually originates from the 20+ year old New Orleans Bounce scene, of which Big Freedia is the undisputed queen. To get in on the fun and bounce your way into the record books, visit Fuse.tv for more information about the event and to register to participate.
Starting at 12:00 p.m., Fuse and Big Freedia will take over Herald Square at 34th Street and 6th Avenue to conduct the largest twerking session to ever take place, with over 250 dancers hitting the floor and shaking their booties for two consecutive minutes in the center of Manhattan. GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS will be onsite to document the event and verify the dancer count for its records. Upon welcoming all participants at noon, Big Freedia will take to the stage and perform fan favorite “Excuse” before commencing with the main event. After 120 seconds of non-stop twerk, and a new record-setting achievement in the bag, Big Freedia will perform “Duffy” off her upcoming EP Queen of Bounce to celebrate and close out the afternoon.
