CONFIRMED: ‘Benthamselfie’ breaks world record

Reppin’ UCL’s only bona fide BNOC

UCL officially broke the world record for the most people simultaneously wearing Jeremy Bentham face-masks in one place.

Do-gooders at UCL Philanthropy confirmed 153 students took part in the successful stunt.

This week saw students from across the world – including Sydney – donning our ideological godfather’s famous fat-face.

The campaign later went viral with the hashtag #benthamselfie.

Jeremy Bentham is Bloomsbury poly’s philosophical founder and was one of its first investors, purchasing a £100 share in the university around the time of its establishment.

The chubby legend’s auto icon sits in the South Cloisters.

During February UCL celebrated Philanthropy Month as a way of recognising those who support the University – either by giving their time or financial support.

This doesn't look creepy at all...

UCLU’s Women’s Officer Annie Tidbury tweeted that the masks were “the stuff of nightmares”.

The original BNOC also got a fashion makeover.
