The Improv Everywhere No Pants Subway Ride 2011 New York City was joined by thousands on January 9, Sunday and started at 3 p.m. SHARP (US time), in which the organizers say that about 3,500 people have joined this year.

According to, an estimated 3,500 participants have joined the 10th annual No Pants Subway Ride in New York alone, with meeting points all around the city and were united on Union Square.

Apparently, the temperature was reported to have been 32 degrees and wind gusts went up to as much as 47 miles per hour (mph), but the participants care less.

The tradition, which was started back in 2002, is a comedy tradition to ‘create a scene’ by Improv Everywhere with Charlie Todd as its founder, but now being joined by 50 cities in 24 countries worldwide.

Interestingly, there are only two requirements if someone wants to join. One has to be willing enough to take his or her pants off on subway; and should be able to take pride about it or will not be ashamed.

Meanwhile, organizers insist that this is a participatory event, which means one should not show up if he is not really willing to join, including the media.

An instruction e-mail was also sent to participants saying that ‘if someone asks why you removed your pants, you tell them that you are getting uncomfortable’.

As of this writing, photos are still being collected but here are some of them, while the official video from was said to be available within a week.
