They say if you can’t run with the big dogs, stay on the porch. Well, after the successful record-breaking attempt today, we’d all just better stay on the porch.
The record for world’s largest bobblehead, previously held by the Game Show Network with a 13-foot-tall Chuck Woolery, was broken today with a 15-foot, 4 3/4-inch dog.
Dino Rentos Studios prop shop was tasked with creating the huge canine for Applied Underwriters, based on a regular sized bobblehead of their mascot, Goldie the St. Bernard, created by Bobbleheads.com. It only took four weeks for Dino Rentos and his team to build the record breaker. If you’d like to see the bobblehead in person, unfortunately you’re going to have to go to one of the trade shows Applied Underwriters is attending. It will first be displayed later this month at the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders show in Omaha, Nebraska.
