Film inspires record-breaking singalong

BY foxsports • October 1, 2011

Ferris Bueller has returned to Wrigley Field, though this time he didn't have to cut class. And he helped set a world record.

The 1986 film ''Ferris Bueller's Day Off'' — about three truant teenagers' adventures around Chicago — was screened Saturday night at the historic baseball field. The event helped mark the film's 25th anniversary.

The trio attend a Chicago Cubs game at the park in one scene. In another, Ferris lip syncs ''Danke Schoen'' after getting onto a parade float.

Prompted by that classic scene, more than 900 viewers sang the song before the screening. A representative from Guinness World Records confirms it broke the previous 500-person record for the most people singing in a round.

The screening was the first of its kind at Wrigley Field.
