On Saturday, to commemorate the 2014 World Pole Sports Championships, pole studios all around the world will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people pole dancing simultaneously in multiple locations.

The current record was set in 2006 when 206 people danced at 26 locations (worth also noting that the event raised roughly $60,000 for cancer charities). This number is expected to be shattered tomorrow as over 100 pole studios are already registered to take part in the event in order to set a new standard for this type of thing.

According to event organizer KT Coates, "The record attempt is a great boost to our attempts to have pole sports included in the Olympic games one day."

Such a thing certainly wouldn't hurt NBC's ratings.
