Milky Lane breaks the world record for largest man-made smile

Milky Lane breaks the world record for largest man-made smile

Milky Lane now officially holds the world record for the “largest human image of a mouth”.

For 60 years, Milky Lane has served oh-so-sweet smiles and shared feelgood moments with South Africa. This modern ice cream parlour has brought joy with its wonder-filled creations served on waffles and cones and in cups. To mark this great milestone, Milky Lane wanted to make its smile status official by breaking a world record!

“We’ve been serving smiles for 60 years and what would be a better way to celebrate this than to create the largest manmade smile the world has ever seen?” says Celeste Montepara, marketing manager at Milky Lane.

So on the morning of May 16, 2018, at Edenvale High School, 1 218 learners lined up to make history. To ensure that everything was within the necessary guidelines, there were timekeepers, auditors and independent witnesses present. The event was a world-record-breaking success. Milky Lane now officially holds the world record for the “largest human image of a mouth”, which has been wonderfully shortened to the largest man-made smile.

“[Breaking the world record] re-affirms our commitment to continue putting more smiles on our consumers’ faces in the years to come.” says Montepara.
