No Pants, No problem: No Pants Skytrain Ride this Sunday
Do pants make you angry? Do you wish that you could never have to be constrained by a pair of pants ever again? You’re in luck! This Sunday, Vancouver Improv Anywhere is organizing a No Pants Skytrain Ride that will be sure to excite the pants-less population and confuse the common skytrain rider.
This breezy tradition will be happening in 60 cities across 26 countries on Sunday, January 12th and all you have to do to participate is to be:
- Willing to take pants off on the Skytrain.
- Able to keep a straight face about it.
From the Vancouver Improv Anywhere website:
HOW IT WORKS:
Do not talk to others once you enter the Skytrain. No one knows each other. Sit in the car as you normally would. Read a magazine or whatever you would normally do. As soon as the doors shut, stand up and take your pants off and put them in your backpack.
If you’d like to use a briefcase, purse, grocery bag, or whatever instead of a backpack that’s fine too. If anyone asks you why you’ve removed your pants, tell them that they were “getting uncomfortable” (or something along those lines). Act as you normally would. You do not know any of the other pantless riders.
If questioned, tell folks that you “forgot to wear pants” and yes you are “a little cold.” Insist that it is a coincidence that others also forgot their pants. Be nice and friendly and normal.
Wear something appropriate. Wear two pairs of underwear if it makes you feel more comfortable. You may bring along friends if you like, but make sure they get a chance to read all of these instructions. Rain, snow or shine- see you there!!!!
WHEN: Sunday January 12th at 4pm sharp!
WHERE: Broadway Skytrain station, ground level by the escalators on the South side of Broadway (opposite Shoppers).
WHAT TO BRING: A backpack and paid fare/ transit pass.
WHAT TO WEAR: Normal clothes. Wear something appropriate. The mission is to make people laugh, not piss them off.
There will also be an after party at The Cannibal Cafe, where you can shake off the adrenaline and re-live the rush of taking off your pants in public with fellow like-minded individuals!
