No Pants Subway Ride 2010 and No Pants Day
How could I have not known about the No Pants Subway Ride until I saw it on the television evening news on January 10th 2010? After having seen Ida Siegel of NBC television interviewing a woman as she stood there in her pretty pink panties on a New York City subway, naturally I did a few Google searches and then read in in Wikipedia about No Pants Day and the Annual No Pants Subway Ride being totally separate events. Before I could write a post or attempt to take a crude video of the television set when the story came back on that night Improv Everywhere's No Pants 2010 Reports were already coming into their blog at a good clip. There were participants, observers and news media already posting photographs and videos online. I was delighted to find out later that the the same Pants Off On the Subway was posted on line with embedding enabled:
This second version of Ida Siegal's nbcnewyork.com report on the 9th Annual No Pants Subway Ride New York City - Improv Everywhere - January 10, 2010.wmv which was uploaded by "BigAppleM" to YouTube seemed a little more complete and seemed to run a little smoother:
I hope to read a lot more accounts, comments and opinions about these public underwear exposure events and all of the various underwear that was on display. There are oodles of blogs, photographs and videos posted by participants, observers and various media. I love it! I cross-posted this on my WordPress blog as well. So what do you think of the 9th Annual No Pants Subway Ride and of No Pants day? What do you think of the various underwear that were on display? Did you participate? Do you think you might participate in next year's event or in the No Pants Day in May?
