Despite the cold weather and unhygienic nature of the event, yesterday saw the 16th annual “No Pants Day” take place on subway networks around the world. If you haven’t heard of the event, it’s basically where commuters opt to where no trousers/pants (depending on your country) on the underground trains of major cities, acting as if it’s just another day. Perhaps the most comical aspect of the entire is how they still dress for winter down to the waist, including gloves and wooly hats. The events are organised by the public prank group, Improv Everywhere, with the very first No Pants Day taking place in New York City back in 2002, with just 7 pants-less commuters. Now, the global phenomenon is held in over 60 cities, in 25 countries around the world. Their official website reads; “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.” Last year, over 4,000 participants took part in NYC alone, and this year, global numbers of trouser-less travellers reached well into the tens of thousands.
