most underpants at once - world record set by Gary Craig
South Shields, UK -- Gary Craig, 51, from
Whitburn, who has dubbed himself the Geordie Pantsman,
put on 211 pairs in 25 minutes at Dusk nightclub - setting
the new world record for wearing
most underpants at once.
The Sunderland-based architect said he came
up with the idea after seeing a YouTube clip of a man wearing
"loads of T-shirts".
About 150 people gathered to watch Mr Craig's
record-breaking bid at Dusk nightclub in South Shields. He
began by putting on a pair of 40-inch underpants (size large)
and finished with a 60-inch (size 4XL) pair.
Speaking afterwards, he said: "It feels pretty
sore at the minute but I'm just absolutely delighted. "I wanted
to really crack it and give the Australians something to think
about. I deliberately went one over the 10 just to make sure."
He added: "The great thing was I had lots
of people there to support me and that made a big difference.
"I felt like if I'd had more pants I could have carried on."
previous Guinness world record for Wearing
most underpants at oncewas 190 pairs, set by an ex
Aussie Rules footballer on 'The Footy Show' in Australia last
Mr Craig has so far raised about £3,000 for the
St. Simon's Drop-in Centre for the unemployed and underprivileged
in South Shields, where Gary is the chairman, as well as the
Cancer Connections charity.
