Well every year that’s exactly what thousands of brave people do every January in what’s fast becoming a global phenomenon.

Known as the “No Pants Subway Ride” it was first organised back in 2002 by a New York art group called Improv Everywhere, initially they had only seven riders but this quickly escalated as word got around turning it into a global event. Nowadays there are coordinators in about 60 cities in over 25 countries around the world.

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.
