Sunday may just have been a normal day to you and I, but for tens of thousands of people throughout the world, it will have been a particularly cold one.
It was the annual No Pants Day. A day on which, you guessed it, people don’t wear any pants (trousers to those of us who speak a version of the Queen’s English that would mean a ‘No Pants Day’ would lead to mass arrests for public indecency).
“The participants behave as if they do not know each other, and they all wear winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves,” explained Improv Everywhere on theirwebsite. “The only unusual thing is their lack of pants.”

Why do they do this? We have no idea, but in a world where people willingly enter the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge and come out with a face like an allergic reaction, why the hell not?
