1,200 people took part

There is new Guinness World Record for the longest human mattress domino chain.

It took 1,200 mattresses and 70,000 square feet of space to do it. Aaron's Inc., an appliance and electronics-leasing company, has broken the record for the longest human mattress domino chain.

And as you can see, it was no small task.

Aaron's CEO John Robinson pushed over the first mattress. The 1,200 people held mattresses behind them and fell backward into each other, one at a time. It took 13 minutes and 38 seconds for the final mattress to fall.

The attempt, which was successful on the first try, was aided by a dominoes expert and certified by a Guinness World Record adjudicator. It beat the 2012 record by 50 mattresses.

The Atlanta-based company says it will be donating all 1,200 mattresses to Washington-area organizations focused on ending poverty and providing shelter to homeless families.
