PATTAYA, Thailand (NBC/RTV) — Thailand is attempting to break a world record for the longest hug.
Twenty-six couples appropriately made their attempt on Valentine’s Day.
They hugged for 26 hours 26 minutes and 26 seconds.
The rules say all participants must have both arms wrapped around each other at all times.
If the hug weakens or the arms drop, the couple is disqualified.
Organizers will send the video of the hugging marathon to Guinness World Record officials for confirmation of the record.
