World Record Attempt for Tutting to be Made this Sunday

Tuttin' Cat Man - Do the King Tut

This Sunday tutters at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), in Toronto Canada, will attempt to set a world record for the most people tutting at one time.

The art gallery is hosting the exhibit King Tut: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs. Heritage Key has a preview ofit here.

The dance is a form of hip hop dance inspired by Ancient Egypt. It was epitomized by comedian Steve Martin in the 1970s on Saturday Night Live.

The Gallery has already signed up more than the 250 dancers needed to set the record, said the AGO in a news release sent out this morning.

Our exit surveys indicate that over 70 percent of visitors to King Tut have never been to the new AGO. Were thrilled with this response, and look forward to welcoming many more new faces in the coming weeks, said museum CEO Matthew Teitelbaum in a statement.

It should be cautioned that this exhibit is unlikely to top the 1979 showing. That showing had King Tuts death-mask and attracted more than 750,000 people by the end of its run.
