Celebrate Kirby’s 20th Anniversary at PAX With A Bubble Gum World Record

Yeah, you read that right. At PAX this week, Nintendo will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the “unique-looking pink hero” Kirby at their booth. Alongside a chance to win Kirby’s Dream Collection, participants will also be able to join in paying homage to Kirby in the only way appropriate for such an occasion: by attempting to break a world record for the most people blowing a chewing gum bubble simultaneously. (Bubble gum, you know. Like, bubble gum bubbles look like Kirby, I guess?) The record previously achieved stands at 304 people, and Nintendo would like to change that.

Either way, happy 20th anniversary to the character who annoyed me the most as a kid playing Smash Brothers 64 whenever he inhaled my Link, absorbed my abilities, and blasted me into oblivion. Hope it’s a good one.
