Will Ferrell and 1,580 People Break Guinness World Record for the Most Number of People Dressed as Superheroes

As a publicity stunt for his upcoming movie Megamind, Will Ferrell gathered 1,580 people dressed as superheroes in order to break a Guinness World Record for that feat:

A total of 1,580 costumed individuals showed up to the event, which was more than enough to break the record of 1,500 set by a New Hampshire children’s hospital way back in… August.[...]

Then Ferrell majestically appeared on a rising stage platform, and Guinness spokesman Stuart Claxton verified the world record, to the sound of cheers. “Everyone in a Spider-Man outfit wins a new car!” joked Ferrell.

Yeah, way to show those children. Well, it was back in August; maybe the kids aren't around any more to hear about it.

Wow really? Breaking a record set by a bunch of sick kids just two months ago? Just to sell a movie. I'm fairly heartless and even I think that's a douche move. Why didn't they do super villains? Since the main character is a villain, not a hero. Makes more sense to me.
