“No Pants Subway Ride” Day

Thousands of bare-legged people around the world took part in the international ‘No Pants Subway Ride’. Scantily-clad riders in 60 cities around the globe braved the weather and some stares from fellow commuters for the annual celebration. It started off as a prank by comedy group Improv Everywhere in 2002, bemusing a few embarrassed commuters, but has since grown into a global phenomenon.

The rules are fairly straightforward. Underpants must be worn and, although flashy designs are allowed, organisers prefer those involved to look – at least from the waist-up – as though they are going about their daily life.
