MINI is most certainly NOT NORMAL. Anyone who has spent time with the cars will know that. A tiny joystick on the floor that controls the speedo-mounted nav? Yeah. Totally normal.

In an effort to enhance its reputation for doing stuff not because it makes sense, but simply because it's not against the fundamental laws of physics, MINI is planning a record-breaking convergence of cars on Mackinaw City, Michigan.

Specifically, the brand is angling for more than 1,451 vehicles to convoy across (and hopefully span) the 26,372-foot long, 500-foot high Mackinac Bridge.

The current world record for a parade of MINIs was set in 2009 in the U.K. when 1,450 cars met at Crystal Palace park in London.

If you're interested in joining in the MINI parade, visit the official website and get your debit card ready: tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for kids aged 6-12, but include lunch, shuttle service, bridge crossing toll, and access to car contests, music, and entrance to the Bayside Music Festival and Fireworks.

Previous MINI Guinness World Records include stuffing 28 women in a single MINI Cooper hatchback and parallel parking in a very short space (in an Austin Mini).
