If you're in need of a new pillow and have always wanted to be part of a world record, then the world's largest pillow fight at U.S. Bank Stadium is just for you. 

Mike Lindell, the founder of Minnesota company MyPillow, has teamed up with Pulse Twin Cities with a goal of setting the Guiness World Record for largest pillow fight. 

It's happening Friday, May 18 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, with the first 50,000 people receiving a free MyPillow. 

The current world record, according to Guinness, included 6,261 people pillow fighting during a St. Paul Saints baseball game on July 21, 2015. 

Of course, that record performance was put on with the help of MyPillow, so the company's owner, Mike Lindell of Chaska, Minnesota, is just trying to break his own record. 

The classic MyPillow costs $49.95 on Amazon, so you'll save yourself some money if you're able to get one of the freebies.
