Mississauga, Ont. – To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, Pringles is launching Ketchup Chips with an attempt at a world record.

In the lead-up to National Ketchup Day on June 5, the Pringles Ketchup Slippery Slide will glide into downtown Toronto on June 3, at the corner of Front St. W. and Simcoe St. Beginning at noon, Ketchup Chip fanatics will suit up in ketchup-resistant coveralls, helmets and goggles and hurl themselves down a 50-foot slippery slide covered in ketchup, the company said in a news release. The plan is for participants to help Pringles set a unique world record – “The Most Canadians to Slip Down a Ketchup Slippery Slide in One Hour.”

The Pringles Ketchup Slippery Slide event will be hosted by self-proclaimed Ketchup Chip keener, enthusiastic slider and former Toronto Blue Jays star, Brett Lawrie. “Ketchup Chips are seriously one of my all-time favourite chip flavours,” Lawrie said in the release. “Playing in the show means spending a lot of time outside of the true north strong and free, and they’re one of the things that I miss most.”
