2012 Vancouver No Pants SkyTrain Ride – January 8, 2012 at Broadway SkyTrain Station 1:00 pm
The No Pants Skytrain (Subway) Ride is an annual global event started by Improv Everywhere in New York in 2002.
When: Sunday, January 8, 2012 at 1:00 pm, sharp!
Where: Broadway SkyTrain station, ground level by the escalators on the South side Broadway (opposite Shoppers).
Bring: A backpack and paid fare/transit pass.
Wear: Normal clothes. (Wear something appropriate. The mission is to make people laugh, not piss them off)
Requirements for participation:
1) Willing to take pants off on the SkyTrain
2) Able to keep a straight face about it
* This is a participatory event. Do not show up unless you plan to tak your pants off
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. The mission is to make people laugh, not piss them off.
You may bring along friends if you like, but make sure they get a chance to read all of these instructions.
