World's Largest Water Balloon Fight Video: UKCSF Sets Record In August 2012

The world's largest balloon fight doesn't happen by accident. As this behind-the-scenes video illustrates, it takes some serious planning to pull off such an H20MG affair. But once the balloons have been filled and the competitors counted then watch out. And good luck staying dry.

Organized by the Christian Student Fellowship at the University of Kentucky (UKCSF), this is surely the most serious water balloon fight that you've ever seen.

According to the UKCSF website, this water-logged world record was made possible by bringing together 236,484 balloons and 11,622 people.

In 2011, the same group set the previous world record, topping an earlier water balloon melee at BYU.
