We may try this next year on the BAT!

In a tradition that dates back to 2002, January 13th was the annual "No Pants Subway Ride" It started as a prank by a comedy troupe called "Improv Everywhere" as a "celebration of silliness, and snowballed from there into a yearly event.

This past Sunday, it took place all over the globe, in New York City, London, Chicago, San Francisco, Copenhagen, Buenos Aires, and Berlin. People just simply drop their pants in freezing temperatures and ride the subway in their underpants, to hilarious effect when you watch the puzzled passengers who have no clue as to why this is happening in the first place.

Take a look at some video of this very strange, but funny event.
