Commuters Around The World Went Pantless For The Annual “No Pants Subway Ride”

The “No Pants Subway Ride” (previously) is an annual event where people ride the subway while they are not wearing pants. The event is organized by Improv Everywhere, and has coordinators in cities around the world.

“The idea behind the No Pants Subway Ride is simple: Random passengers board a subway car at separate stops in the middle of winter without pants. The participants behave as if they do not know each other, and they all wear winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. The only unusual thing is their lack of pants.”

Participants are instructed to maintain a nonchalant air, behaving as though everything were normal. “Remember,” advises the website, “taking photos is not keeping a straight face. Enjoy the experience and resist the urge to document. Take those Instagram shots when the ride is over.”

The website tells particpants that if their fellow passengers ask them why they aren’t wearing pants, they should reply that they simply forgot to put them on. They should also insist that it is a coincidence that others also forgot their pants.
