Six-hundred sixty-one playahs joined the cast of New Line Cinema's Tag at Six Flags Over Texas for a Guinness World Record-breaking game of that childhood classic, Freeze Tag.

John Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Ed Helms, Jake Johnson and Hannibal Buress joined fans for the game in the sweltering Texas heat. Thanks to the die-hard fans, the previous record—for a Michigan game involving 634 players—melted away. The result was certified by Philip Robertson of Guinness World Records, who was in attendance to verify the win and present a plaque.

Based on a true story (no, really) of a group of friends playing the same game of tag for decades, Tag arrives in theaters June 15.
