The No Pants Subway Ride

I'd love to know who called the cops-and exactly what they said in that phone call. Sunday morning's No-Pants Subway ride, an annual pantless prank staged by Improv Everywhere in cities across the globe, was briefly interrupted by the police. According to intrepid TOC photographer Max Herman:


"Everyone without pants was ordered off the train because someone called 911. A few minutes later, after the organizers of the No Pants Ride talked to the cops and explained things, everyone was allowed back on board."


Can everyone just take a second and give the Chicago Police Department a high-five on this score? Way to just be chill about something goofy and mildly disruptive but not illegal, CPD. In the photos, you can see the no-pantsers meeting on a El-adjacent rooftop to make depantsing plans and get phsyched up for their shenanigans, followed by a ton of skivvy-clad hilarity (including some very confused fully clothed CTA riders), the cops stopping in to check on the ruckus, and then more El-stop underoo action.
