MuchMusic Awarded Guinness World Record
MuchMusic has been awarded a Guinness World Record for 'Shortest TV Commercial.' The "Quickies" are a series of on-air spots that run just 1/60th of a second long. The "Quickies" are eight times faster than the previous record holder, an ad for Bon Marche's Frango sweets that was aired in 1993. MuchMusic producer & editor Tharanga Ramanayake, creator of the "Quickies" commercials has said: "It's really nice to get this kind of recognition - it doesn't get any bigger than a Guinness World Record."
