VIDEO: NEW MOST PEOPLE SHAVING WORLD RECORD SET IN GREECE
A group of 2,150 people in Greece showed they were a cut above the rest when they set a new world record for the most people shaving at a single venue earlier this month.
The successful record attempt took place in supermarket chain Masoutis’s new warehouse in Thessaloniki.
Sponsored by Gillette to promote their new Fusion Proglide razor, under the record guidelines each participant had to have at least 24 hours growth and had to make at least 5 razor strokes.
The whole record attempt was observed by 50 supervisors, two independent witnesses, along with Guinness World Records Adjudicator Seyda Subasi-Gemici.
As well as setting a new record, the event also helped to raise money for a local charity benefiting children in need.
The new figure breaks the previous record of 1,868 participants at an event that was also organised by Gillette in Mumbai, India, in 2009.
