Celebrate 500 Episodes of The Simpsons With World-Record Breaking TV Watching Marathon

Recommended Videos

As it stands, the current Guinness World Record for continuous television watching is 86 hours, 6 minutes, and 41 seconds, and was set all the way back in 2010. However, it might not last much longer as an over four-day-long marathon of The Simpsons is being planned to commemorate the 500th episode of the series. Does this sound like a plot line from The Simpsons disconcertingly come to life, or is it just me?

The event will begin tomorrow at 5:30 PM at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles, CA. It will end on Sunday at 8:00 AM, which is odd, because if they just pushed it back a week and ended on the 19th they could have dovetailed into the 500th episode beautifully. You can sign up for the insanity here.

Thankfully, there’s more than just a world record at stake here. The winner of the marathon — presumably, the last man or woman standing — will walk away $10,500 richer and with a boat-load of Simpson’s merchandise. So if you ever wanted an animation cell from America’s favorite yellow family, then this could be your chance. That, is of course, if you think you can endure the crushing length of it all.

Anyone want to try the Ludovico technique?
