Tomorrow, January 12, is No Pants Subway Ride day. Don’t be surprised if you see a lot of bare legs on the subway. This is an annual event organized in nearly 60 cities worldwide in 26 countries.

This event was started in 2002 by the New York-based group Improv Everywhere.

As the name of the event implies, participants dress in normal winter attire — coats, hats and scarves. The only thing missing is their pants.

Charlie Todd, the founder of the event, in an interview with the USA TODAY Network mentioned that the event is not about exhibitionism but rather about comedy. “It’s meant to be a positive thing to make people laugh and smile,” Todd said.

Here are highlights from last year’s event.
