To celebrate The Simpsons
' 500th episode in February, Fox invited fans of the iconic series to participate in "The Simpsons
Ultimate Fan Marathon Challenge" at the Hollywood & Highland Center
in Los Angeles. Some 100 fans got together with the goal of watching 500 continuous episodes of the show in an attempt to break the Guinness world record of 86 hours, six minutes, and 41 seconds for the longest continuous television viewing. Together with the Fox creative services team, executive producer Night Vision Entertainment
washed Hollywood & Highland in yellow. The event included a giant 40- by 60-foot glass structure with a custom yellow top, which served as the theater for the viewing marathon. A massive screen showed each episode, beginning with season one, episode one.
