No Pants is one of our regular events held every year around January 10th since 2008.
The basic idea is to ride the train/tram without pants and pretend that it is the most normal thing to do. When people see one person doing this they can easily pass them off as a crazy, but when more and more people enter the train without pants, apparently unknown to each other, the reactions are just priceless.
The No Pants Subway Ride is an annual global event started by Improv Everywhere in New York in 2002. Around 2007/2008 other cities started to join IE by hosting their own No Pants events in their cities. We were the first in Australia to get involved with our event drawing 5 people in 2008.

I (Nick) was away in Europe for No Pants 2010. I actually participated in No Pants Subway Ride in Barcelona (organised by Barnamob) which was awesome!
