Members of Medaille College’s class of 2012 squeezed into the tiny
confines of the Medaille Bug on Wednesday, May 2. With 21 students
making it inside the vehicle, the seniors broke last year’s record of
A team of motivated, and flexible, senior students have been
rigorously practicing to fit inside the Medaille Bug, Western New York’s
best – and only – anthropomorphic vehicle.
With the Bug’s eager agreement, these volunteers stayed as faithful
as possible to the rules set out by the Guinness World Record authority.
Other rules for this type of event: no seats can be removed; all
windows and doors must be closed; there is a ten-minute time limit to
"stuff” the vehicle; and, the car must start on completion of the cram.
The current, official Guinness World Record for "stuffing” people into a
new VW Beetle occurred on April 29, 2000 in Kremser, Austria – 25
people. An unofficial record was set by Penn State Abington in 2001 with
27 students. And of course, Medaille students in the class of 2011 set
their own record of 19 last April.
