Watch people ride Metro without pants

On Sunday, some Metro riders participated in an annual tradition known as the No Pants Subway Ride. It’s exactly what it sounds like, so describing it is probably unnecessary, but in the interest of journalistic thoroughness: The “No Pants” ride involves subway riders who board trains while not wearing pants. (See? Exactly what it sounded like.) People do this all over the world, because the burden of wearing pants transcends borders and oceans.

Want to know what the Washington edition of this event looked like? You can probably imagine, but here’s a video just in case:
