Pants-Free Public Transit

What began as a prank in 2002 New York City has grown into an international phenomenon: No Trousers on the Tube Day:

Hundreds of Britons, of all shapes and sizes, stripped down and kept a straight face as they rode on the underground in their underwear.

Confused commuters also saw the pranksters take part in a mannequin challenge on the concourse at Kings's Cross Station in central London.

Organiser Ivan Markovic said: "We have been running it for eight years here. We travel the Tube on the first Sunday of the year and just make a scene. We make people smile. We make people laugh and we get some lovely reactions."
Sadly, the big day was apparently January 8, so I missed the celebration. But there's always next year...
