In honor of National Underwear Day (Aug. 5) an online underwear retailer attempted to see how many people they could get to break the previous Guinness World Record for "Largest Gathering Of People In Their Underwear."
There were an unusual number of skid marks in New York City Monday -- and not just on the streets.
A world record attempt in Times Square for the largest gathering of people in just their underwear failed miserably.
FreshPair.com, an online underwear retailer, attempted to see how many panties they could get bunched up in midtown Manhattan.
It was hoped that there would be enough participants to break the previous Guinness World Record for "Largest Gathering Of People In Their Underwear."
However, when each boxer, brief, jockey short, bikini, g-string and thong was counted, the judges found only 779 people in their undies, far below the previous record of 2,270 set in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, on September 24, 2011.
