A Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of Albert Einstein lookalikes was set in Toronto on March 28. A total of 404 Einsteins got together. The Next Einstein event, an online competition to find the next genius idea, kicked off its launch with the attempt at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto.
Many young admirers of the Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist probably have genius ideas of their own under those fake curly locks.
The competition, which started in 2013, “awards people who embody the same creative and curious spirit as Albert Einstein.” In addition to a cash prize, the grand prize winner also becomes eligible for a Einstein Legacy Student Scholarship to the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
