The Dutch public health service wanted to break a world record and educate young people at the same time. So they sailed a 127 foot pink condom balloon over a concert which read, "Safe Sex". More than 80,000 youths were expected at the three-day Zwarte Cross event â€” a combination motor-cross race and rock concert. The health service wanted to draw awareness to sexually transmitted disease prevention.
They are also hoping their massive, floating condom will make it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's largest condom.
