How can an underwear company raise awareness about world poverty? Cramming a bunch of half-dressed people into an oversize pair of purple underpants in the streets of London seems like a pretty good way to draw attention to just about any cause. To celebrate Guinness World Records Day , 60 participants managed to fit themselves into one pair of briefs to break the record for “Most People Gathered in a Single Pair of Pants.” Pants to Poverty , the fair trade label behind the stunt, hopes it will help raise awareness about ethical working conditions in the fashion industry.
