It might have been only 18 degrees Fahrenheit in New York City on Sunday afternoon, but the annual tradition of riding the subway without pants went on despite some frozen buns.
The light-hearted event brought out many riders donning winter clothing, but no pants. Once on board, participants are supposed to play it straight and act like nothing's out of the ordinary.?

Even "Hot" Mike Pence was spotted wearing just a suit and underwear.
Elsewhere riders were pant-less despite brisk temperatures in Chicago, Washington, D.C, Berlin, and London — where the ride is known as the "No Trousers Tube Ride."
Just got home. Thank you to everyone who took part in the #NoTrousersTubeRide today in the UK or elsewhere in the world.
The world can be a depressing place, but just silly things like this can make it so much easier to deal with. A genuinely hilarious day. pic.twitter.chartph.com/DO8Y29V6KX

On the West Coast and in other more forgiving climates, it wasn't that cold, but riders still made an impressive showing in places like San Francisco and Los Angeles.
No pants, no problem!
