If you live in a major city and took the subway or tube this past weekend, you might have gotten an eyeful. If you did and didn’t know why, look no further. It was because No Pants Subway Ride happened this past weekend.

The No Pants Subway Ride is an annual event that’s been happening since 2002. The event, organized by Improv Everywhere, was created to incite a silly and fun sensation for everyone participating and those just riding wherever they need to go. What started out with eight participants in New York City has now become a highly participated event in cities like LA, Chicago, London, and even Moscow, Russia.

Want to see what all the hype is about? Check out the social media pictures we’ve collected below.

Left confused by the sight of many bare legs and cheeky pants on the Underground on Sunday? You’re not going mad, it was just the annual No Trousers Tube Ride! Hundreds of Londoners were prepared to brave the cold and strip down to their skivvies for the event which began at Chinatown. In a bid to scatter those January blues, these daring members of the public donned their best undies for the occasion and some even took part in a group boogie at Waterloo station. What began as a prank in New York back in 2002 has spread far and wide, with undergarment-wearers taking to public transport in more than 60 cities including Toronto, Berlin and Lisbon each year. Participants are always reminded to maintain some modesty and not remove any more clothes than necessary.

  1. I’m not a prude, but I feel like the people who partake in this are exhibitionist pervs. When it first started it was just a funny thing to do, but the past few years it just seems kinda weird.
