The 9th Annual No Pants Subway Ride is scheduled for tomorrow (Sunday January 10), with participants in over 40 cities standing by to ride their local subways or buses sans pants.
Organised by the Improv Everywhere group, the annual stunt attracts a wide range of participants, with the simple common goal of riding the subway/train/bus without their pants, but while keeping a straight face!
Those taking part can't reveal what they're up to, and if questioned by other passengers as to why they've taken off their pants, must offer a simple excuse like they were "getting uncomfortable".
The event's founding city New York has six meeting points for the start of the ride, with all trains converging on Union Square.
No Pants Ride 2k10 will also be held in over 40 other cities across America, Europe, and around the world on mass transportation services ranging from subways to trolley buses.
There's full information here for the groups organising individual cities including Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne (Australia), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Barcelona (Spain), Berlin (Germany), Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Francisco (USA), Toronto and Vancouver (Canada), Tokyo (Japan), Stockholm (Sweden), and Warsaw (Poland).
(New Zealand seems to be missing out again... Noone in Auckland or Wellington keen to take up the challenge of organising a crew?)
