NAKED AND UPSIDE DOWN

The BBC reports that the Thorpe Park amusement park has played host to a record-breaking group of students who staged the world’s largest naked rollercoaster ride. The theme park offered a £1,000 prize for the best group picture on board its Nemesis Inferno ride, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. 81 students rose to the challenge, though only 28 were included in the official count, since the ride can only take that number in one go. The stunt will now be officially recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as “Most Naked People on a Rollercoaster”.

The IPKat, ever a follower of contemporary art, wonders if, Spencer Tunick, famed for his photographs of nude people in urban settings, might not have something to say about this.
