The comical event, which first began in the USA, saw scores of people jettison pants, skirts and shorts in favor of simply wearing underpants on their lower half during train rides in the cities of Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, New York and London and more. "But when I woke up today I just knew that I had it in me".

"The turnout is definitely down this year", said LJ Geraghty, who has traveled to the Big Apple for 14 straight years to take part in the internationally-celebrated, pants-less excursion.

Another participant, Deli Meehan, stated, "I don't like trousers anyway". In New York alone, about 4,000 subway riders ditched their trousers for today's ride.

"It's always best to have at least more than one layer", said Dombeck when asked about the possible dangers of the frigid temps on bare skin.
