It's that time of year again: Improv Everywhere, a New York-based group of merry pranksters, is planning its 8th annual No Pants Subway Ride this Saturday Jan. 10. This year 18 cities around the world, including Boston, are planning to participate.
Here in Beantown, 2009 will mark the event's second year. Last year an estimated 100-200 people shed trou on the T without incident (reminder: boxers, yes; briefs, if you must; commandos need not apply) under the watchful eyes of T police. Here's a link to the story on last year's ride, a slideshow, the local group organizing this year's, and for all you facebook fans...
The event began as a lark in New York in 2002 with only seven participants, spreading joy and chaos through city's subway system, according to Improv Everywhere.
Planning to be on the road? No worries. Besides New York and Boston, events are planned in: Adelaide, Australia, Amsterdam, Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Lisbon, Portugal, LA, Phoenix, Portland, Ore., SF. Seattle, Sydney, Australia, Toronto, the Twin Cities in Minnesota, Vienna, Austria, and Washington, D.C.
