LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — If you’re riding Metro today, you may see a little more skin than you’re prepared for.
If you do glimpse a suspicious number of bare thighs while riding, it’s probably due to the annual “No Pants Metro Ride.”
An event page on Facebook says participants should meet at Hancock Park by L’Enfant Plaza Metro where a brief pre-ride meeting will begin at 2 p.m.
The idea of the ride, according to Facebook, “is to appear as if you had no idea that you were missing pants or that you knew but didn’t think it was a big deal.”
Organizers advise participants to keep pants on your person but hidden in a bag or backpack.
“If any figure of authority tells you to put your pants back on, do as they say,” the event page says. “Unfortunately indecency laws are entirely subjective and while we haven’t had any major problems in the past, we’d like to keep on DC Metro’s good side so the event can continue for years to come.”
There will be a post-ride after party at Level One in Dupont Circle.
The No Pants Subway Ride is an annual global event started in 2002 by Improv Everywhere in New York.
