On Saturday Spokane’s “Bubbillusionist,” Jarom Watts, broke the Guinness World Record for blowing the longest chain of soap bubbles before a live audience at The Lincoln Center in downtown Spokane. Watts’ bubble chain was comprised of 15 soap bubbles, beating the previous world record of six, according to Spokane Metro Publisher Collin Klamper, who was on hand to witness the record-breaking attempt. Klamper says results are pending, but it looks like Watts also broke the world record for blowing the largest soap bubble by volume. A team of Eastern Washington University mathematicians who witnessed the event is currently calculating the size of the elephantine bubble; fingers crossed—they should have an answer in the next couple of weeks.
