After all the hype and anticipation, Carnival Cruise Lines finally smashed open the World's Biggest pinata (Pinatazilla) this past weekend in downtown Philly. Here's video of the 8,000 lbs of candy enjoyed by the folks on hand—actually, several hundred "extras" hired to appear in the commercial being filmed.
Don't worry about the candy going to waste—the entire contents of the pinata will be donated by Carnival to charitable organizations in Philadelphia, such as Philabundance, the YMCA, Ronald McDonald House, Dignity Housing, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Travelers Aid Family Residence Center, among others. All that sugar is going to make a lot of kids happy.
