Photos Of A Bunch Of Yucky People Doing The No Pants Subway Ride In Two Degree Weather Will Make You Cringe

Source - One of the best and most amusing NYC events in January is the No Pants Subway Ride  created by Improv Everywhere’s Charlie Todd. In 2002, the funny fella produced the first-ever event and posted it on YouTube, where the short clip quickly gained popularity. Donning winter coats—minus their pants—the straphangers share the same goal: to confuse bystanders. The event had only 150 participants in its first year, but now the prank is an international sensation with over 25 countries involved.

Cringe. Worthy. I wonder where you have to be in life to do this? Like, are these people that bored that they’re waking up early on a Sunday to take their pants off in public? In the dead of winter? As a prank? What’s the payoff? It’s not like they’re doing it to raise awareness for something. They’re doing it because they want to check each other out. Or as they put it “confuse bystanders.” Which is fine for Asa but is disgusting for everybody else.

Just thinking about the thousands of farts fired into those seats makes me gag. You couldn’t pay me enough to sit down on the subway. Especially without pants on. I’m not trying to catch crabs on my way downtown. I don’t even touch the poles without gloves on; they’re a biohazard. I get into a really wide stance and surf to my destination.  You end up getting bounced around but it’s the cleanest way to get from point A to point B.

If they were smart they would’ve organized the event for the summer. Let people work out, get their bodies in order. Resolution season just started, everyone’s still shaped like a pear. Not only that, the cold weather tends to shrink things. Which can be problematic if you’re trying to impress riders. Hopefully the tradition won’t last much longer, all it takes is one misplaced bulge to set someone off.
