Take Off Your Pants And Ride The Subway

Today is No Pants Subway Ride day, in New York City and around the world, wherever subway (underground) trains are to be found (all sorts of places, not just the obvious ones like London’s Tube and the Paris Metro). Started by comedy group Improv Everywhere, this is what it’s all about:

The No Pants Subway Ride is annual event staged by Improv Everywhere every January in New York City. The mission started as a small prank with seven guys and has grown into an international celebration of silliness, with dozens of cities around the world participating each year. The idea behind No Pants is simple: Random passengers board a subway car at separate stops in the middle of winter without pants. The participants do not behave as if they know each other, and they all wear winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. The only unusual thing is their lack of pants.

You can participate in the next edition, taking place this Sunday, January 8, 2012, around the world. [New York Details and Details for Other Cities]

A documentary about Improv Everywhere is currently raising funds on Kickstarter. Here’s the trailer showing how No Pants started:

    A serious question, let’s say some kid was on the subway with his father.  Who would be in the wrong if the father punched this guy’s lights out.  That woman should know better she thought she was in danger at first.

      The father would be in the wrong. What sort of example would he be setting for his son / daughter if he just punches peoples lights out for no reason? I’d suggest he goes to angry management therapy. The guys will no pants on still had boxer shorts on, hardly the most revealing of undergarments, it’s not like they had no pants on at all.
