Everything's bigger in Texas and that goes for a beach ball that was dropped on Elm Street and bounced around downtown Dallas on Sunday.
It was all part of Carnival Cruise Lines' attempt to break a record for the world's largest beach ball.
According to Guiness the ball needed to be at least 10 meters in diameter and had to be made of real beach ball material.
It took several adults to get the ball moving down Elm Street.
Not only did Carnival succeed in getting into the Guinness Book of World Records, the company got a commercial and free TV time out of it.
