Last year, (Watch vimeo.com/18604142 ) over 100 Londoners took part. The 3rd Annual No Trousers Tube Ride in London will take place on Sunday 8th January. This event will also take place in other cities around the world on the same day.
FAQs AND COMMENTS:
This is illegal!!!!!
Um, no, it isn't. "The Sexual Offences Act 2003 applies only to aggressive genital exposure with intent to shock those who want not to see the genitals."
We want this event to be fun and safe for everyone, so anybody found to be removing more than their trousers will be kicked off the train and reported to the British Transport Police and station authorities.
"So I can wear a skirt instead? or “Hey, no problem, I was gonna wear a dress anyways!”
"You’re very clever, but you’re missing the point. Articles of clothing like skirts, shorts, kilts, and dresses don’t count, because people are encouraged to revel in the absence of trousers, and not replace trousers with other clothing. The point is to relax and enjoy the humor inherent in people not wearing trousers. A good rule of thumb is to pretend like you were going to wear trousers, and then just fail to put them on."
The No Pants Subway Ride is a global event started by Improv Everywhere in New York in 2002. For a history, see: improveverywhere.com/missions/the-no-pants-subway-ride/
