Queen of Twerking Big Freedia Sets Guinness Record in New Orleans Central City Fest – Video

So you know Miley Cyrus ain’t got nothing on Big Freedia, the inventor and queen of the twerk. She recently went all the way from New Orleans to New York city to set a Guinness world record for the number of folks twerking at one time. OK, so they got about 300 or so. I big giant city like New York with millions of people and they could only manage a little over 300? Oo wee…what’s up wit dat?

Queen of Twerking Big Freedia Sets Guinness Record in New Orleans Central City Fest – Video

Well, New Orleans has got only a coupla hundred thousand people and we managed to dig up 400 folks willing to twerk for 2 minutes to set a new Guinness Twerking World Record. Really. They had a guy from Guinness supervising the whole thing being very vigilant, disqualifying people if they stopped mid-twerk.

This video was shot last weekend at the new New Orleans Central City Fest, a celebration that only started only a coupla years ago. And of course, we like our festivals and this has become the new big thing. In new Orleans if you build a festival… they will come.

So here we got out own inimitable Big Freedia doing only what she knows how to do best. Keep an eye on dat thing. It’ll burn your eyes out.
