Nino entered the Guiness World Records with Pocky

On October 31st, Arashi’s Ninomiya Kazunari (29) attended a Guinness World Records Challenge Event held by “Pocky” (Ezaki Glico Co., Ltd.).

Pocky created a mosaic art based on their CM model character played by Ninomiya, “Devil Nino”. They entered the Guiness book by using 1,307,208 pocky. In order to achieve this, a total of 240 people worked during 48 hours.

When the 50.92 square meters mosaic art was unveiled, Ninomiya expressed full of joy; “Amazing!”, “I’m really glad I became an entertainer, I’m deeply touched”. Ninomiya also participated as representative of the brand and received the Guinness certificate on stage. Deeply grateful he said, “This was prepared by a lot of people, so I want to thank all of them”.

Among the agency, KinKi Kids and President Johnny Kitagawa are the only Guinness World Record holders. Though Ninomiya’s award is not a direct certification, for Guinness association, he is considered as the 3rd member of the agency to be awarded. To this, Nino dedicated a message to Johnny-san, “Finally! You can say we are side by side” he said with a smug face causing laugh among the audience.

In addition, it was revealed by “オリスタ” magazine that Arashi has won the top spot as “Favorite Artist Ranking chosen by 20,000 music fans” for the 3rd consecutive year.

Congrats (I guess) to Pocky, Nino, and the actual people who made this! With all the flavors snacks such as Pocky have in Japan, this mosaic could have easily been a multicolored one! :D

And I thought ARASHI is Guiness Book holder for their AU CM's?
jamasunda 1st-Nov-2012 09:07 pm (UTC)
If I recall correctly, Arashi held either 2 or 3 Guinness records for their AU cm, but AKB48 beat them

XD I'm not really sure though.

-Most versions of CMs for the same product within 24 hours on terrestrial broadcasting
- Most versions of CMs for the same product within 8 hours on paid channel
- Most versions of CMs for the same product during a 30 minutes-long TV program

AKB set the first one

karavanuemura 2nd-Nov-2012 10:55 am (UTC)
Oh, that explains. And again, AKB48. XD

Though Ninomiya’s award is not a direct certification, for Guinness association, he is considered as the 3rd member of the agency to be awarded. To this, Nino dedicated a message to Johnny-san, “Finally! You can say we are side by side” he said with a smug face causing laugh among the audience.
