From New York City to Tokyo, Madrid to Berlin—there are 60 more rides other than this!
It is a very cold winter, but people are dressing down. A fad that started in New York by the comedy collective Improv Everywhere in 2002 has now reached the corners of the world and is being done by tens of thousands of subway commuters. So how does this work? Simple: people dress in winter clothes from head to their bellies, but nothing more than their underwear from the waist down. Yes—it’s a pant-less winter day!
The first No Pants Subway Ride began with seven riders in 2002 in New York City. In 2006, 150 people participated in New York City. During that event, eight were handcuffed for disorderly conduct, but the charges were later dismissed. For 2013, sixty cities had coordinators.
Would you participate in this kind of event if it means making others smile?
