Largest Online Tournament Ever

As part of their five year anniversary Fulltilt was trying to set the Guinness World Record for biggest online poker tournament. The tournament was Sunday the 19th. I got the email announcing it today, on Tuesday the 21st. I'm going to go ahead and guess they didn't break the record, which is too bad, because I probably would have tried to play if it was next week, or say in a month or so, and I actually had time to plan for it. I wouldn't mind participating in a record setting event. Its not like they didn't know they were going to do this months ago. How hard would it have been to send an email blast a week or two ahead of time?
