The No Pants Subway Ride is an 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.
Some 4,000 people apparently took part here. I saw a few people walking on First Avenue in their underwear... and coats. I thought about taking photos, but it seemed like a lot of effort. And a little pervy. Then again, you're the one in your underwear walking on First Avenue.
Not sure what else transpired after the ride.
What the fuck is this east village no pants bar crawl going on?— Nick Lechner (@__nickkyy) January 14, 2013
All too corny for my tastes. Still, certainly far, far away from SantaCon on the Apoplectic Rage Meter. Didn't know how you felt about it... New Jack Cornballs? Or, Hey, We're Just Having Fun. If You Don't Like Fun, Then Move to... Or maybe somewhere in between.
