Thailand yearns for another Guinness record


NARATHIWAT, Sept 27 –Thai people nationwide will wear white T-shirts on December 4—the eve of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 85th birthday, in a show of force hoping to be verified in the Guinness World Records.

Twenty million white T-shirts will be on sale throughout the country to raise funds for assistance and job creation to people affected by insurgency violence in Thailand’s deep South.

“Heart and Unity to the South,” will be printed on the T-shirts to be sold at Bt250 each ($8). The nationwide activity is also a harmonious demonstration of loyalty to His Majesty the King.

The Guinness World Records last month named Thailand the country with “the most people massaged at the same time,” beating Australia’s earlier record from 2010.
