Dada Life releases video of Chicago's pillow fight record

November 01, 2013|By Mick Swasko, @swasko | RedEye

We are the champions of the pillow fight.

Swedish electronic duo Dada Life has released footage of last weekend’s successful world record attempt at the Aragon, and it’s total mayhem. Dressed to the nines in Halloween attire, 3,813 revelers topped the previous record of 3,706 people fighting with pillows for 60 straight seconds.

The fight broke out during the band’s first song, “Happy Violence.”

The record required about 23 pallets of pillows in a 50-foot-long, 30-foot-wide, 15-feet-high space to be stored next to the Aragon before the attempt. Those who helped break the record were able to keep the pillows as souvenirs of their achievement.

The band’s management says a full video of the recap of the night will be available soon.
