The pranksters of Improv Everywhere recently staged their annual No Pants! Subway Ride. More than 2,000 people around the world took off their trousers and rode the trains. From the New York City mission report:
All of the train lines converged on Union Square at the end of the mission, which means that within a short stretch of time 1,200 pantless people passed through the station’s exit turnstiles.No Pants 2k9 at Improv Everywhere
It was about 30 degrees out and still snowing when we made it to Union Square, but everyone was having too much fun to put their pants back on. Many participants hung out in the cold for over an hour, laughing with friends new and old.
