Organisers of the event had their fingers crossed to beat a previous world record with 148 people dressed as ''The King'' to sing ''Viva Las Vegas'' at The Ship Inn at Par, Cornwall.
Pauline Giles, who ran the attempt, held the poor turnout on a combination of bad weather and the credit crunch responsible for the failed bid. "It's been raining all day which puts people off. Things are also a bit tight at the moment so all in all it was a slightly poor show," the Telegraph quoted her as saying. The existing record was set by 147 Australians eight years ago.
