Israel on Thursday broke a national record of fitting the most amount of people in a mini-car, cramming 15 people into one mini in just four and a half minutes. 

The record-breaking event took place in Rishon Lezion's Zahav mall, which is currently giving away 70 Suzuki Alto cars as part of a raffle held in honor of the new mall's grand opening.

The challenge was to set a new Israeli record by fitting as many people as possible into one mini at the same time, closing all doors and windows shut after them.

According to a press release, the accomplishment was recorded and will be sent to the Guinness World Book of Records with the aim of  setting a world record. 

A spectator at the event noted that these days, Israel is only on world news regarding the subjects of Iran, women's exclusion and the social justice movement. "We could use a little national pride by setting a world record," he said.
