The New York City-based prank collective Improv Everywhere is known to organize scenes of chaos and joy in public places. It was created in August of 2001 by Charlie Todd and by now has been involved in over 100 missions involving thousands of undercover agents. On Sunday, they made their presence felt by organizing the “No Pants Subway Ride”.
In fact, they have been organizing the No Pants Subway Ride each year since 2002, which means that this was the eleventh time that they were at it. This time there were 4000 brave souls who participated in the pant-less subway ride this year. However, if you are still waiting for me to reveal the hidden reason behind their motives then here is why: It’s a funny to travel without wearing pants. And, I’m doubtful about who tried this in India, because the only modern metro we have is in Delhi; probably, that is the reason enough.
Thanks to the social media, the joke spread across the world, and was majorly cracked in Canada and Mexico. Toronto's event reportedly had around 60 pant-less people; besides, major shocks were felt by users of the SkyTrain in Vancouver when, hundreds of participants gathered in ode to the occasion. When Postmedia, a media company based in Vancouver, did their set of interviews with the commuters; one commuter said that he simply told his fellow passengers that he had forgotten his pants at home. After all, the cause was served as long as the participants were successful in giving those in their vicinity a good laugh.
In case, you were planning on spreading a laugh then here is your brief before you get into your briefs: If people stare at your bare legs, just pretend that you haven't noticed that you aren’t wearing pants and say something like, “Oh, what did you say? I'm not wearing pants? Oh shoot, I think you are absolutely correct.”
