No Pants Subway Ride Is Starting 2020 Right

No Pants Subway Ride 2020

No Pants Subway Ride is back and back with a fury.

The annual subway ride, set for some reason during the coldest part of the year, took place across the globe. From Chicago to LA to New York and London, there were people celebrating this annual event all over the world.

And exactly is this event? Honestly, it’s just as it sounds. People go about their days as if its any other. EXCEPT, many get on the subway or the tube without pants on.

The first No Pants Subway Ride started in 2002 thanks to the performance group Improv Everywhere. The first event started with seven riders in New York City. Since then, the event has gotten bigger and bigger each year.

That isn’t without its own controversy, of course. In 2006, eight New Yorkers were handcuffed for disorderly conduct. Those charges were later dropped. Then a decade later in 2016, Moscow, Russia had its first participants in the event. Unfortunately, the local police didn’t get the memo and many participants were investigated for “instigating of mass public disorder.”

But again, the event grows bigger with each coming year. And this year is another example of that. To check out how some participated, you just have to look at the pictures below.

Left confused by the sight of many bare legs and cheeky pants on the Underground on Sunday? You’re not going mad, it was just the annual No Trousers Tube Ride! Hundreds of Londoners were prepared to brave the cold and strip down to their skivvies for the event which began at Chinatown. In a bid to scatter those January blues, these daring members of the public donned their best undies for the occasion and some even took part in a group boogie at Waterloo station. What began as a prank in New York back in 2002 has spread far and wide, with undergarment-wearers taking to public transport in more than 60 cities including Toronto, Berlin and Lisbon each year. Participants are always reminded to maintain some modesty and not remove any more clothes than necessary.
