10 Photos for Montreal's 2015 No Pants Subway Ride

This past Sunday, Montrealers stripped off their pants (and wtv else they wanted) for the "No Pants Subway Ride." Originally created as a simple joke between friends back in 2002, the event is now held in many major cities across the world with thousands of half-naked people taking part annually.

Montreal has now participated in the event for the last 3 years, and the idea is to create a totally absurd situation: people riding the metro normally - with no pants - in the middle of winter! Participants are encouraged to act as casual as possible, carrying on about their business, eg. read books, listen to music, like it was any other day.

Luckily for the brave souls who went sans pants yesterday, it wasn't polar vortex cold, and for once, our notoriously hot metro stations were welcomed.

Check out some of the hilarious pics from the 2015 No Pants Subway Ride below.

No pants, No problem!

Too much?

To the surprise of many, Quebec City also made the Top 10 — and it ranked higher than Montreal, with Quebec City at #4 and Montreal at #6.
