Today, in celebration of the upcoming release of the highly anticipated motion picture Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and National Security Guard Day, security guards and other New Yorkers joined Kevin James and successfully set two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ titles on Segways. The security guards then joined James at the red carpet premiere of the film. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 arrives in theaters on Friday, April 17.
Prior to the premiere, more than 100 participants joined together to set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Largest 2-Wheeled Electric Personal Vehicle or Segway Lesson; then, with the lesson complete, they joined James as the star led the way in setting another new mark, for Most People Simultaneously Performing a 360-Degree Turn on 2-Wheeled Electric Personal Vehicles or Segways.
Also at the premiere, Media and Entertainment Deputy Commissioner Luis Castro unveiled Mayor Bill de Blasio’s proclamation declaring the day “NYC Security Guard Day” in the city.
Commenting on the announcement, Kevin James said, “Meryl Streep has been nominated for 19 Academy Awards®, winning three. I hold two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS titles on a Segway. So, we’re both doing well.”
In Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, after six years of keeping our malls safe, Paul Blart has earned a well-deserved vacation. He heads to Vegas with his teenage daughter before she heads off to college. But safety never takes a holiday and when duty calls, Blart answers. The film is directed by Andy Fickman, produced by Todd Garner, Kevin James, Adam Sandler and Jack Giarraputo, and written by Kevin James & Nick Bakay.
