World Record Attempt?

Some guy just saw my unicycle while I bought a sandwich, and struck up a
conversation with me. He claimed he had “not so long ago” seen a successful
world record attempt on television.

“About 1500” (!) unicyclists holding onto each other, all staying up at the same
time, crossed a road.

Can anyone give me any more details about this? When? How many unicycles?
What lucky locality could manage to get 1500 unicyclists (not to mention
their unicycles) together at the same time? I have my bags packed, and I am
ready to move!

It should only take a couple of minutes. Do it before you forget.
