This event began as a small prank with just seven participants by a theatre group called Improve Everywhere and has since grown into a worldwide phenomenon. Traditionally since its inception, walking around with no pants seems to be the norm for this new holiday and the funny part is people still get stares from bystanders and on-lookers, considering it has been going on for 12 years.
At the event, I began interviewing several women that were walking around past us and I asked the majority of them, if they felt cold. Several of them said that they were not cold but some of them felt a little chill; either way, I think everybody was having a good time and didn't think to complain about the weather. One girl we interviewed even said "it snowed during the No Pants Day three years ago and [she] made snow angels in [her] underwear outside."
There were several men who also participated, but only to take photos. They were all googly-eyed at the girls in their underwear, including a guy who held a sign that said "Hot Girls Wanted" and his reason for being there was simply to have "hot girls" sit on his face and twerk.
It was quite an interesting event but I'd like to do it once again next year as we are making this an event that will be part of WTF tradition.
