It started in New York City, way back in 2002 (15 years ago!), by Improv Everywhere, a New York-based group dedicated to causing scenes (according to their website).

At this point, it's spread pretty much everywhere, including Italy, Sweden, Los Angeles, Chicago, and, yup, Montreal.

Absolutely nothing. Just because. Being fun just for the sake of being fun. There's nothing political or charitable about it, according to the Facebook event page.

Montreal's version of the event will go down on January 8 at 2:30 PM.

It'll begin at Mont-Royal metro. The route hasn't been announced just yet, but it'll be posted before the event so you can join in pretty much whenever.

The only rules? Don't block the passageways in metro stations, do be respectful, and of course... come without pants.
