TORONTO—Skills Ontario is inviting Ontarians to participate in an attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the largest online video chain of people passing and using a Screwdriver.
The record attempt is open to anyone across the province, with a minimum goal of receiving 251 video submissions, stated a May 5 release.
