No Pants Subway Ride
When: Jan 10
Where: MTR anywhere
What? Maybe we’re asking the wrong question….WHY? Why are people gathering together to ride the subway pant-less? Well…it all started back in 2002 in New York where a ‘prank collective’ known as Improv Everywhere displayed their underwear nonchalantly on the subway. The point? Merely to celebrate silliness and chaos in public spaces.

Hong Kong followed the event last year but on a smaller scale – but how about we see in 2016 a little more pant-less?
