It was 18 degrees in NYC on January 8, 2017, and I took off my pants to ride the New York City subway during No Pants Subway Ride 2017.
Oh, I wasn’t having a hot flash, and no I wasn’t the only one doing it. There were people of all ages from all over the world, doing it too!
No Pants Subway Ride is a FUN- FOR- ALL-AGES event created by ImprovEverywhere‘s Charlie Todd.
This year’s 16th annual leg baring, saw thousands of people “taking it all off” in 50 + cities, all over the world.
With my new tech toy locked and loaded onto my iPhone, I was prepared to live stream broadcast the festivities to my global audience of over 11,500 viewers on Periscope.
At precisely 3PM, I showed up at Foley Square (one of the 8 NYC meeting points) and whipped it out.

Make sure to scroll around with your finger or mouse to see the view in 360 degrees. It’s really cool.
Little did I know that when I posted several of my snaps in the GLOBAL “No Pants Subway Ride” they would be chosen for a curated feed in the Discovery section on Snapchat.
Nor did I have any clue, that my snaps would be viewed OVER FOUR MILLION TIMES in 24 hours.
Needless to say, the event was a blast and a half.
