I’m not sure what it says about me when my main goal on Saturday was to find the pantless people?! My aunt emailed me on Friday saying she heard on the news there would be people riding the train with no pants and wouldn’t that make a great photo for the blog. Needless to say, I ended up agreeing with her.
I felt a bit like a paparazzi stalker, whom I detest, but this was all for fun and no one was annoyed at having their photo taken. Actually, half the pantless people seemed to have cameras with them, along with the professionals covering their mission. While they started out on the Red Line they switched over to the Greenline at Park Street. This was where I was waiting for them. While waiting for an outbound train, some of the pantless people broke out in dance, others just read their book/magazine. I ended up jumping on a train with them and rode a few stops before heading back. It was pretty funny to see some older people give them strange looks and shake their heads, but overall most people seemed to get a kick out of it.
For anyone interested in more information, Improv Everywhere is the group that started this mission. There website states that they cause scenes of chaos and joy in public places. You can check out a YouTube video of the New York “No Pants” mission here.
While I had enough photos to last me a few weeks worth of blogs I decided to spare you all and made a single collage.
