Maybe we should just stick with the classics.
Nexen is a Canadian energy company based in Calgary. If that sounds to you like the most boring place in the entire world to work, you’d be wrong. How is that possible?
Well, would a boring company have the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people dressed as Batman? I didn’t think so. Not only did the Nexen company break one of the coolest World Records, they doubled it. With their 542 employees, they made a gathering of 250 people dressed as Batman seem like child’s play. Take a look at this crowning achievement in Canadian energy history!
A Guinness World Record official tallies the employees.
That’s a lot of people dressed as Batman.
Why so interested in ruining your company’s chances at getting a world record?
Looks like that one Joker was no match for 542 people dressed as Batman.

Talk about a great day at the office. They may not be the heroes the Guinness Book of World Records deserves, but they’re the ones they needed. Keep on having fun at work, Nexen, and please keep providing the people of Canada with energy.
