The annual No Pants SkyTrain Ride is coming up on January 8th presented by Improv Anywhere.
No Pants SkyTrain Ride
When: Sunday, January 8, 2017 at 2:30pm (rain or shine)
Where: Meet up at the Commercial-Broadway Skytrain Station (South side, by ticket machines). Make sure you have valid fare. From there, the group will divide.
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 the same day.
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 backpack. If anyone asks you why you’ve removed your pants, tell them that they were “getting uncomfortable” (or something along those lines).”
And the requirements are:
1) Willing to take pants off on the Skytrain.
2) Able to keep a straight face about it.
The mission is to make people laugh, not annoy them. The full route will be posted on the website and Facebook event page by Thursday January 5th.
Participants are invited to The Cannibal Café (1818 Commercial Dr) after the Skytrain Ride for a Burger and a beer Combo. Limited seating! First come, first served.
