Sunday marked the 6th annual “No Pants Metro Ride” in Los Angeles. The event invites everyone to drop their pants, don their best pair of skivvies and take a ride on the Metro into Los Angeles. Twitter was more than happy to share today’s events with those who were unable to attend in person with the hashtag #nopantssubwayride.

The event is originally credited to the group Improv Everywhere from New York which began the prank in 2002. What began as only seven pants-less guys taking a ride has grown to include cities across the globe like Honk Kong, London, Berlin, France, Prague and of course Los Angeles with participants in the thousands.

Improv Everywhere explains their motivation behind the event on their website.

“The idea behind No Pants is simple: Random passengers board a subway car at separate stops in the middle of winter without pants. The participants do not behave as if they know each other, and they all wear winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. The only unusual thing is their lack of pants.”

Los Angeles attendees were organized by GLAImprov and were encouraged to bring pants in case they must “re-pants”, use discretion when selecting their underwear and not to discuss the event with other passengers.

This year’s LA event took place from 1-3 p.m. at various Metro stations around Los Angeles with each passenger ending their trip at the Hollywood/Highland station.
