Thousands of semi-naked commuters all around the world took part in the 14th annual ‘No Pants Subway Ride’ on January 11.
The first No Pants Subway Ride began as a prank by seven riders in 2002 in New York City. Later crazy flashmob spread to such European countries as Great Britain, Sweden, Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic and many more.
Participants are asked by the organizers to dress normally on their top halves read some book or magazine, in one word behave naturally. The aim of a rather awkward event organized by Improv Everywhere is nothing but bringing smiles on people’s faces.
