Photos: The No Pants Subway Ride Was a Bare Affair
On what could very well go down as the coldest day of the year, intrepid and irreverent Angelenos took to the Metro rails Sunday afternoon for the annual improv gathering known as the No Pants Subway Ride.
The event hardly necessitates further elaboration, but for the uninitiated, the No Pants Subway Ride is a couple of organized hours once a year during which participants ride on the subway without their pants. It's a global event, put together by the pranksters of Improv Everywhere.
This year in L.A. there were multiple factions of pants-free riders on different rail lines who bared their legs to the chilly January air and braved the bewildered and amused looks of fellow transit users.
Fear not--all the pantsless riders wore underthings--or, diapers, in the case of the youngest participants--so besides a bit of cheeky cheek and a lot of leg, our photos from the Union Station to Hollywood trek are safe for you to peruse at your desk.
