What a genius idea!

Toronto’s innovation hub, MaRS Discovery District hosted Einstein look-alikes this morning in the hopes of breaking the Guinness World Record for “Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Albert Einstein.”

The world record attempt kicks off The Next Einsteins, an open competition held by the Canadian Friends of Hebrew University in conjunction with Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the custodian of the Einstein estate. Happening March 28 to April 25, the winner will be awarded $10,000 “in cash as seed money to help realize their genius idea.”

With a strict dress code in effect, the crowd of white-wigged, moustached imposters took over the MaRS building. While spotting geniuses might be more challenging, the Einstein look-alikes all look adorable.
