False Advertising? TV Show ‘Guinness World Records Gone Wild’ Not What We Thought It Would Be

Oct 13, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Hey, isn’t this false advertising? We heard there’s been a pilot orderd for a show titled "Guinness World Records Gone Wild," and thought we knew what it would be about.

Knowing the huge popularity over time of the "Gone Wild" brand, we naturally assumed that this show would be showcasing such highbrow feats as "Which College Goes Wildest at Spring Break," and "Record Number of Wet T-Shirts at Cancun Gone Wild Party."

Instead, here’s what the pilot will be about, according to an announcement from truTV: " ‘Guinness World Records Gone Wild’ will feature average, everyday folks taking their shot at landing a place in the famed record book. Among the records the show will set out to break are the most panes of glass run through in one minute, fastest time to jump over three oncoming cars, highest dive into 12 inches of water, most kicks to the head in one minute, most live cockroaches held in the mouth, most paintballs to hit a person in 30 seconds and the most people crammed into a tiny car, to name a few."

Definitely not the high-brow show we were hoping for…
