3News helps break Guinness World Record on 'TODAY': Watch the moment

The new world record was having the most people watering plants simultaneously in multiple venues.

EASTLAKE, Ohio — We did it!

A new Guinness World Record was broken Friday morning as 3News joined forces with NBC’s TODAY for the special Earth Day effort.

The record? To have the most people watering plants simultaneously in multiple venues. Here were the requirements:

  • One plant or tree per person
  • One water can per person
  • Minimum of 250 people in five venues
  • Water for a minimum of 10 seconds

We crushed it, too, as Guinness confirmed we helped break the world record with 799 people watering plants simultaneously.

TODAY hosts Savannah Guthrie, Carson Daly, Craig Melvin, Tom Llamas and Dylan Dreyer launched the record attempt with multiple NBC affiliates from across the country -- including our own Carmen Blackwell who was live with dozens of people from Borac's Landing in Eastlake.

We streamed live video from our location as the world record was broken, which you can watch below:

Happy Earth Day!
