no pants subway ride 2013

I really like Improv Everywhere.

Last Saturday was their annual No Pants Subway Ride.

I’ve always wondered though: how are there so many people who have never heard of it? I mean, I know there are a /lot/ of people worldwide, countrywide, et cetera…but I heard of the No Pants Subway Ride before I had even heard of Improv Everywhere - and don’t say it’s because I’m “on the internet” because I only started using the internet as an entertainment tool about 4 years ago and I heard of the No Pants Subway Ride when it was the 8th annual iteration (it is currently the 12th or 13th?)

Don’t get me wrong, I’m delighted that there are still people who can find confused delight and interest in this particular event. But I know major news sources have reported on it, and I know that at least a few famous celebrities have tweeted about it. So it just surprises /me/ that it surprises so many people.

But in a good way.

I wish they would do more “scenes” nowadays.
