MLB player helps set strangest world record ever: the ketchup slide

MLB player Brett Lawrie uses ketchup slide to set new world record

There have been many variations on the popular slip-and-slide, including the adult drinking game, Slip and Flip.  But the strangest variation came Saturday with major league baseball player Brett Lawrie’s ketchup slide.

National Ketchup Day is June 5 – yes, that’s really a thing – and the 27-year-old former Toronto Blue Jays infielder hosted a Pringles Ketchup Slippery Slide event in Toronto.

Lawrie, now a free-agent, was helping promote Pringles’ new ketchup flavored chips. Yes, that’s also a thing.

Lawrie fans and ketchup enthusiasts, or those who just wanted to try a slip and slide full of ketchup, donned coveralls, helmets and goggles before hurling themselves down the 50-foot slide covered in the popular condiment.

Whether or not the stunt helps Lawrie’s major league comeback remains to be seen, but the event may set a world record for “The most Canadians to slip down a ketchup slippery slide in one hour,” according to Kellogg Canada.
