Malaysians have gained another entry into the Guinness Book Of World Records for “The Largest Online Video Chain of People Performing Football Juggle” thanks to a campaign by WONDA Coffee to promote their canned “Kopi Tarik”.
The campaign was started in conjunction with the last FIFA World Cup, during which WONDA Coffee organized its #WONDABolaCorner campaign, encouraging Malaysians to participate as we didn’t get a spot in the World Cup itself.
To commemorate the achievement of setting a new world record, official Guinness World Record adjudicator Jacob Yip presented the record title to Etika Sdn Bhd vice president (Marketing) Amy Gan during a press event earlier today.
Juggling a football for at least two kickups requires a certain level of skill but to draw more Malaysians into taking part, WONDA Coffee managed to get some of Malaysia’s football talents to take part, such as Mohd Faiz Subri, Safiq Rahim, Qhouirunnisa and Steffi Sidhu among others.
The initiative has been a massive success that can be validated by the overwhelming response and mass participation of Malaysians which far surpassed our initial expectations. We truly appreciate and would like to thank everyone for the tremendous support throughout this activity.Etika Sdn Bhd vice president (Marketing) Amy Gan
And while the ink is still drying on this record, Etika says they are committed to setting more in the future.

TRP's Head of Editorial, Hamzah was formerly a hard-news journalist who reported on politics, did investigative work, and occasionally went undercover. He now spends his days sitting at a desk, checking grammar and fielding calls from PR companies, which is totally fine and fulfilling. For sure. He's also married with kids now so his wife and mother said he can't do risky things anymore.
