COMMENTARY: I think I was around 22 when I wore the same pair for almost 6 months. I called the Guinness Book of World Records, and they told me that they didn’t monitor that sort of thing. After I made plans to break my old record, I contacted Froot-of-the-Loom for a possible sponsorship. They told me that they would pay me $1000.00, if I promised not to wear their underwear when I tried to break my old record, and another $500.00 if I promised to never call them again. I took the money even though I thought their marketing strategy was weird.
