This year the No Pants Subway Ride was another extreme event which got bigger and bigger and now was held in more than 20 cities in the United States alone, and 50 cities world wide.
Yesterday thousands of people got on the American subway systems showing a little more flesh than normal. The event No Pants Subway Ride was organized by Improv Everywhere and was held this year for the 10th time. The phenomenon is gaining momentum world wide and next year an increase of cities and participants of about 10-15 percent is expected.
The Sunday afternoon strip down was attended by thousands in the US alone. And many got on the subway, stripped down to bare flesh while waiting for their ride of the year. A Sunday afternoon striptease is not for the fainthearted but it seemed to be enjoyed by the onlookers. Goose bumps were spotted by our local reporters as most of the participating cities lay in the Northern Hemisphere.
Every city had a few meeting points where partici-nopants would meet up and then get on the train together. The meetings were all at 3pm Sunday afternoons. In New York City the ride was extremely well organized. And many of the participants told our reporter they would participate with more friends next year.
