From Raillan Brooks's report:
"At 12:30 on September 25 in the Year of Our Lord 2013, something amazing happened: 358 New Yorkers got together in Herald Square and broke the world record for the number of people twerking simultaneously. The rules were simple: Keep your back straight. Pop your hips, not your knees. And no hands on the floor! Big Freedia led the crowd in a two-minute werk-out work-out to a cut from her upcoming album. Some brought their twerking A-game."
