    Geordie Pantsman Breaks World Record For Most Underpants Worn At The Same Time

    GEORDIE Pantsman Gary Craig's record-breaking stunt has become an internet sensation.
    Architect Gary, from Whitburn, pulled on 211 sets of underpants at Dusk Nightclub, South Shields, last week to smash the Guinness World Record.

    And after the Gazette first revealed the 52-year-old's bid back in February, Gary has gone global.

    His story has been picked up by newspapers all over the world, and video clips of his bid have been seen by almost 25,000 viewers on internet site YouTube – with one fan uploading his own attempt at putting on the most socks in tribute.

    And last night the video was even featured on prime time BBC One topical comedy show Have I Got News For You.

    Host Alexander Armstrong played the clip to the show's guests Ian Heslop, Paul Merton, Victoria Cohen and comedian Richard Herring.

    And this weekend it is due to be shown on the BBC's Odd Box programme, which shows the 10 most "weird and wonderful" internet videos of the week.

    Gary tackled the record to raise cash for the Gazette's Quids In campaign, which aims to help South Shields-based charity Cancer Connections buy a new home as a base.

    He said: "I can't believe how far it's gone, but the only reason I did it in the first place was for the charity.

    "I've got to say I was over the moon when I heard it was going to be on Have I Got News for you because that's my favourite programme.

    "I guess it's one of those wacky videos that seems to get noticed just because of how different it is.

    "But I'm hoping it will get bigger now, because it will mean more exposure for the Quids In campaign."

    The event, on April 1, raised more than £1,000 on the night and his total now stands at £3,000. His goal is £10,000.

    The video shows hundreds of underpants on display on the nightclub dancefloor before Gary enters the building to the Rocky theme tune.

    It then shows Gary pulling on the pants one at a time until he completes all 211 to raucous applause – breaking the previous world record of 200, which was held by an Australian.

    Gary, who lives with wife Jackie, 49, and daughters Sarah, 25, and Amy, 23, said: "I just remember all the underpants cutting off all my circulation, but the pain was all worth it.

    Pants Man is a world record holder

    IT'S the news he's been waiting for, and it's finally arrived – the 'Geordie Pants Man' is a Guinness World Record holder!




    Whitburn architect Gary Craig, 52, who successfully donned 211 pairs of underpants at South Shields nightclub Dusk back in April, was left with a permanent grin after he opened the unexpected delivery this week.

    It came after months of anxious waiting after problems with the DVD he sent to America to confirm his place in the record books.

    "I just had a smile on my face all day when it was confirmed," he beamed.

    "I'd been waiting for four months, and it was getting a bit frustrating.

    "I'd sent the DVD over to the US but they couldn't play it, apparently – you'd think an organisation as big as Guinness would have dealt with a problem like this before.

    "I kept ringing them up, but it just went to an automated telephone system. I was all set to ring them again when it popped up in the post to tell me it was official."

    The video of his record-breaking pants-a-thon became an internet sensation, and even featured on prime-time BBC programme Have I Got News For You.

    Next month he is set to appear on the new series of Rudetube, after reaching an unofficial new record of 212 in his living room.

    However, no sooner had the record been confirmed than it emerged it could be snatched away, as a video has been doing the rounds of a 10-year-old American boy putting on 215 pairs.

    He said: "I don't know if it will count, because you need to request prior permission from Guinness. We'll have to see.

    "But if it turns out my record has been broken, then I might have to go again to set another one.

    "I added 11 pairs last time, and now I feel like setting a really high record once and for all!"

    Dad-of-two Gary, who raised £3,000 for the charities St Simon's Drop- In Centre and Cancer Connections through his stunt, is determined the record remains in Britain.

    He added: "I took if off the Aussies, and now it could go to America. However, I think it needs to remain in Britain."

    Geordie Pantsman’s Britain’s Got Talent date

    Published on Friday 15 April 2011 01:00



    HE’S certainly got originality and enthusiasm, but has South Tyneside’s very own Geordie Pantsman got talent?

    Record-breaker Gary Craig will star in this year’s series of ITV1’s Britain’s Got Talent, starting on Saturday.

    But the 52–year–old who scooped a Guinness World Record last year for pulling on 211 pairs of underpants in 25 minutes has already caused quite a stir with his act.
    Mr Craig, a father–of–two from Whitburn, travelled to the auditions in Glasgow earlier this year.

    He performed in front of veteran judge Amanda Holden and newbies Baywatch star David Hasselhoff and comedian Michael McIntyre.

    Mr Craig, who works as an architect when not practising his unusual act, said: “I can’t say too much, but I think it’s fair to say there was certainly a mixed reaction from the judges.

    “Obviously what I do is original, but I’ve had to change things slightly for the purpose of the show.

    “I only had a short time to show them what I’ve got.

    “Let’s just say there’s a special reason why most of the pre-show publicity shots show me from behind, but that doesn’t matter because I’ve got a face for radio anyway.

    “I just thought I’d give it a go.

    “In the past I’ve seen blokes standing there eating After Eight mints and I thought ‘I’ve got more talent than him’.”

    Mr Craig was also filmed with Stephen Mulhern, host of the ITV2 spin-off show Britain’s Got More Talent.

    He said: “We had a 30-second mini pants pulling-on competition and then I was filmed all through my audition.

    “They even got me walking off into the sunset with me and just my pants.”

    It’s not the only TV show Mr Craig will be starring in. On May 2, he’ll also be featured on ITV1’s Britain’s Best Dish.

    Contestants, who are amateur cooks, battle it out for a £10,000 prize and the chance to have their winning creation on the menu at London’s Savoy Hotel.

    Mr Craig decided to impress judges with his ‘Union Jack Pie’, which contained beef, haggis, Guinness and leeks.

    He said: “I was fully clothed this time and I was personally very pleased with the way things panned out.

    “I came up with the idea of the pie as they’re all key ingredients from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

    “I gave a pair of underpants to one of the presenters, Mary Nightingale, so I hope that will be aired.”

    Mr Craig is now looking forward to watching his antics on screen.

    He said: “I’ve seen myself in the adverts for Britain’s Got Talent, but I’m not sure what night it will be on, so I’ll just have to stay tuned.”

    not worth it's own thread, since we have a Geordie one already; have friends from Newcastle I'll send this to, and expect no reply

    'These idiots embarrass us': Anger in Newcastle as locals slam Geordie Shore after its first episode

    26th May 2011

    It's the new show that plans to give The Only Way Is Essex and Made In Chelsea a run for their reality TV money.




    But after just one episode, the cast mates of Geordie Shore have already managed to anger Newcastle natives.
    Locals are believed to be furious after the show's debut airing on Tuesday night which saw cast members stripping off, vomiting and getting drunk.
    More than 23,000 people have joined a Facebook page - called R.I.P Geordie Pride - slamming the show and the cast.
    And according to the Sun, around 4,000 people have signed a petition calling for the MTV show to be axed.
    But the music station is happy after the show pulled in 330,000 viewers, the station's largest audience in three years.
    During Tuesday's episode, cast member Holly Hagan was seen showing off her breasts to her male housemates in a hot tub, before Jay Gardner drank from a bottle of beer placed in her cleavage.
    Holly then later slept with Gary Beadle, 23, even though she has a boyfriend, and 21-year-old Sophie Kasaei was seen throwing up after her boozy night.
    But their antics left Geordies with a bad taste in their mouth and they took to the show's Facebook page to express their anger.
    The page itself proclaims: 'After this we can no longer be proud to have a Geordie accent after these idiots embarrass us all on national television'.
    Local Stu Blackburn wrote: 'This show makes me embarrassed to be from the north-east. R.I.P the Geordie nation We'll always love you.'


    Not exactly riveting viewing: Geordies complained about having to watch Sophie throw up after a heavy night out...
