The greatest world record attempt of all time was foiled by a bumbling reporter who was covering the attempt. What was the world record? Well, it was the world record for the most people inside a gigantic soap bubble.
Reporter David Nazar of KOCE was covering the attempt at The Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, California when things went terribly wrong. Nazar was interviewing the man who was attempting the record when he stumbled and fell backwards popping the bubble that was being used to set the world record. When he asked if the attempt could be done again, the response was sadly, 'no.'
