Thrill seekers at a UK theme park helped drinks firm Dr Pepper set a new record last month when 169 people crammed into a pair of giant Y-Fronts.

The attempt, which took place at Thorpe Park in Surrey, required 57 people to beat the previous record set on Guinness World Records Day in October last year by charity Pants To Poverty in London's Docklands.

Despite the park's adrenalin-inducing rides, the unusual record bid proved to be a huge draw, with a large crowd of spectators gathering to see the participants climb into the enormous undies which measured 10m width and 3m 51cm in height.

The attempt formed part of the Texas beverage manufacturers 'pants or prizes' campaign.
