Last year, Supernatural actor Misha Collins spearheaded the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen. And the 6,200 people who participated broke a world record.
They’re back at it again this year — this time with 10,000 people pre-registered — and if Collins’ preview is any indication, it’s only going to get weirder.
A little background: The event began as a quest to organize the largest global scavenger hunt ever — and, in the process, raise a little money for Collins’ Random Acts of Kindness charity. With 6,200 participants, who carried out tasks from a massive and highly unusual list that included earrings made of molars and flying foliage, they succeeded. And Collins promises it’s only going to get bigger and better.
