Get on the Tube and get yer kecks off!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

HUN­DREDS of peo­ple are set to ride trains half NAKED as part of this year’s No Trousers on the Tube Day.

Dozens have al­ready pledged to brave the cold tem­per­a­tures and join the event, which is tak­ing place in Lon­don on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

It is part of the world­wide No Pants Sub­way Ride – which be­gan as a small prank in New York in 2002 and has since spread to over 60 cities around the globe.

Last year, around 300 peo­ple took part in the gim­mick, which urges trav­ellers to try to keep a straight face dur­ing the stunt.

A spokesman said: “When told to by your group leader, re­move your trousers and put them into your back­pack.

“You can wear fun un­der­wear if you like, but noth­ing that screams out, ‘I wore this be­cause I’m do­ing a silly stunt’.

“Don’t wear a thong or any­thing else that might of­fend peo­ple. Our aim is to make peo­ple laugh, not p*** them off.”

Or­gan­is­ers say the event is “al­ways a blast” and have as­sured peo­ple they would not be cold as the en­tire trouser-less part of the event is un­der­ground. PA­PER can only be re­cy­cled six times. Af­ter that, the fi­bres are too weak to hold to­gether.
