The 2016 No Pants Subway Ride Happens on Sunday, January 10th!
There are always lots of fun things to do in New York City. We don’t sleep, we drink too much, we do these things on Tuesdays– because we can.
In fact, the motto of NYC might as well be “Because we can.” With that in mind, consider the No Pants Subway Ride coming up on January 10, 2016.
As if you needed another excuse to take your pants off, it’s almost time to confuse the hell out of everybody around you on the subway!
Not only that, the No Pants Subway Ride has become a time-honored tradition for over ten years. Improv Everywhere’s Charlie Todd hosted the first one back in 2002, which only drew about 150 people.
Since then, Improv Everywhere has been very busy putting together seemingly random ballroom dancing in crosswalks, epic Christmas caroling, Subway Pizza Party, and, of course, the MP3 Experiment in NYC and major cities across the world.
But the No Pants Subway Ride may be the wackiest of all Improv Everywhere guided flash mob events. It’s the one with by far the most butt.
Everyone loves butts. Especially butts wrapped in silly knickers that draw the most puzzled looks from New Yorkers and tourists not in the know.
The time to pull your pants off on the train will arrive soon 3p.m. on January 10th. Participants will meet with organizers at one of many locations to be announced the week before the event.
From there, everyone groups up and heads for the subway. It’s free (besides the subway ride), and all you have to bring is a bag to put your pants in and a Metrocard. But you’re going to want to dress warm, as, you know, it is going to be January.
To RSVP, check out the Facebook event page or tweet at @ImprovEvery using #NPSR.
One piece of advice, though: depending on your undies situation, you may just want to stand on the train…
So make all your nightmares of being bottomless in public come true, but with fun instead of shame. No shame. This is New York.
