One year more, New York City, London, Vancouver, Barcelona... joined the worldwide "No Pants! Subway Ride" launched by ImprovEverywhere.
The No Pants Subway Ride is an annual event staged by Improv Everywhere every January around the world.
The mission started as a small prank with seven guys in New York City, 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 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.
One of the rules for participants is: "If someone asks why you are not wearing pants, you can respond with phrases like: Gosh! I didn’t noticed!, or Yes, I always go without pants on the subway, or This is one of my purposes for this new Year".
No pants, be happy!
