Film extras surround a huge pinata in Philadelphia Sunday, Nov. 2, 2008. Breaking the Guinness Record for the world’s largest pinata, according to an onsite Guinness adjudicator, the giant mock donkey measured 60 feet, 4 inches long; 23 feet, 10.5 inches wide and 61 feet, 10.25 inches tall. Carnival Cruise Lines used the giant pinata as an element for a new television commercial. The previous record was 52 feet, 5 inches long; 15 feet, 5 inches wide and 47 feet, 10 inches high, set in 2006. FOR EDITORIAL USE ONLY. (Andy Newman/Carnival Cruise Lines/HO)
