To beat the record at least 100 bartenders needed to flair for a minimum of two minutes without dropping their apparatus. There were three attempts at the record and the final outcome can be seen in the video below.
The event was part of the celebrations taking place this year for the 25th anniversary of TGI Friday’s in the UK. TGI Friday’s is well known for moves such as the shadow pass, the gun roll, and the c-turn and anyone who has ever seen the movie Cocktail, starring Tom Cruise, will have witnessed what the TGI Friday’s team are capable of (it is they who trained Tom for the movie).
TGI Friday’s bartenders are also known for their own personal flair and there was an abundance of unusual hairstyles, hair colour, piercings and waistcoat paraphernalia on show this morning. Another interesting point to note was the fact that, amongst the 120 bartenders attempting the record, less than 10 were women. There’s your next Guinness World Record attempt TGI Friday’s: the highest number syncronised, flairing, female bartenders. Come on girls, grab a bottle!
