New York Subway Pants-Down Time

Sorry, guys. Apparently, the New York City cops don’t like pants-down time on their subways. Eight pranksters dropped their pants last Sunday, January 22nd, while riding the subway and were arrested for disorderly conduct. Apparently, over 160 riders participated in the event, organized by Improv Everywhere. Who knew this was a nation-wide phenomenon?

The same group has also staged a suicide jumper on a four-foot tall ledge:

And a McDonald’s bathroom attendant:

    Truly, our first ammendment right to pants-down time is at risk here! I’ll call the ACLU. That reminds me of a phenomenon that was all the rage in Europe two or three years ago (and still might be today) called “flocking.” This is where large groups of people assemble to do quick, guerrilla style, random acts in public places. The biggest US site I know of is still up: (also
    An example would be “Cincinnati 2/5/06: everyone assemble at Fountain Square at 12:30pm in business atire. When you hear a loud, primal scream, begin forming a tribal dance circle around the fountain. Within a minute, a person will shout ‘Tyrannasaraus Rex.’ flee the scene and resume your day.”
