BERLIN, Germany — Hundreds of pantless people were spotted riding public transportation on Sunday.

It was the 14th annual no pants subway ride. This event was started in New York City in 2002.

This year more than 60 cities in 25 countries are participating.

The tradition made its way to Germany this year, photos included.

It’s always held in January, to make it even a bigger impact, seeing people braving the winter elements with no pants.

It began as prank by the group Improv Everywhere in New York City, according to the organization’s site.
