The annual No Pants SkyTrain Ride is coming up on January 10th presented by Vancouver Improv Everywhere.
No Pants SkyTrain Ride January 2016
Since the first event in New York in 2002, the No Pants SkyTrain Ride coincides with an annual, global stunt that will see pants drop on mass transit in about 60 cities on Sunday, January 10, 2016.
In Vancouver, the ride is organized by Improv Anywhere who has some very basic rules and instructions: “Board the Skytrain. As soon as the doors shut, stand up and take your pants off and put them in your backback. If anyone asks you why you’ve removed your pants, tell them they were ‘getting uncomfortable’ (or something along those lines).”
If you’re up for pulling down your pants, you can join other participants next Sunday, January 10th at 2:30pm at the Vancouver Art Gallery (north side, by steps) and from there the group will divide. The requirements for participation are also very straightforward: “Willing to take your pants off. Able to keep a straight face about it.” Be sure to have valid transit fair for the ride as well.
The mission is to make people laugh, not annoy them. For more specific assignment details, visit the official No Pants SkyTrain Ride Facebook event page. Follow @ImprovAnywhere on Twitter and the tags #NPSR and #Standupandplay for more information about the event and the after party.
