During one of the coldest winters in recent memory, the last think you would expect to see on the subway is people riding without any pants.
That’s exactly what you got, though, if you happened to hop on a subway in D.C., New York, Baltimore, and 41 other cities in 16 countries.
The group says its mission is to cause “scenes of chaos and joy in public places”.
Participants were told to meet at a designated train station fully clothed before boarding and taking off their pants.
People are told to keep a straight face, act normally and not acknowledge other people without pants.
Some observers were heard gasping “What the?” Some took pictures. Others just stared. So far, there have been no reports of any negative disruption from the stunt.
The group is responsible for other stunts. In July 2008, they played a life-sized game of Risk at the Navy Memorial, recruiting unsuspecting tourists to compose additional armies.
Why they do this in the middle of winter is beyond me. At least “No Pants Day” isn’t until May.
