PICS: Hot Undies Rule In NYC’s “No Pants Subway Ride”

Hundreds of New Yorkers dropped trou on the subway last weekend as part of the 15th annual No Pants Subway Ride. They were joined by pantsless commuters around the world, who rode subways from San Francisco to Jerusalem as part of the silly tradition.

The No Pants Subway Ride began in 2002 as a stunt in one subway car, where a different man in his underwear would get on at each stop and they’d all pretend they didn’t know one another. At the eighth stop, a man selling pants for a dollar passed through the subway. It’s the creation of New York-based Improv Everywhere, a long-running New York prank operation whose other antics include delivering pizzas to unsuspecting commuters and turning an overheated subway station into a spa. It’s a welcome change from all the underground chaos that New Yorkers are used to dealing with.

Since then, the event’s gotten media coverage on CNN and the Today show. Participants still pretend that nothing unusual is happening, and other than the pants they wear whatever they need to stay warm. It is January, after all.

Participants shared many, many photos of the event on Instagram. Here are some of our favorites:
