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 I did a few Google searches and 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:
The version of Ida Siegal’s nbcnewyork.com segment on the 9th annual No Pants Subway Ride - January 10th, 2010 , which was uploaded to YouTube by BigAppleM, seemed, in my opinion, to be a little more complete and more smoothly embedded than the original nbcnewyork.com version. (opinion only) Attempted re-embedding below:
I’m looking forward to reading about and observing more blogs, comments, photos and videos of this epic annual public underwear exposure event as they continue to be written and released. (and enjoying this immensely! Congratulations to all the public undie advocates and brave souls who participated. I hope this movement continues to grow. I, personally, was not born with clothes on, but feel underwear is a nice compromise. P.S.: Hooray for Lady Gaga, Madonna and Pink, too! Loved that sidewalk “Time Warp” (from the Rocky Horror Picture Show).
