Nick Cannon spread love to fans entering Citi Field in New York on Friday. The 92.3 NOW radio host attempted to break the world record for most hugs in one hour. He embraced everyone from kids and adults to men in drag and pets. Despite his noble effort, he fell 52 short of the world record of 1,698 hugs.
“52 off!” said a disappointed Nick. “We’ve got to do it again. I felt like if we had started a little later and closer to the door, we would have got it.”
But his efforts didn’t go unrewarded. For every hug he gave, a toy was donated to the Mets Care Room at the New York Hospital of Queens.
