My parents are going to be so proud of me…

Explanation:  The plan for No Pants Day is to just act and dress normal, but like you’ve just forgotten your pants.  Hence the dress shoes and dress socks, people!

So this past Saturday was the Eighth Annual No Pants Day as started by the group Improv Everywhere; they were the ones that did the famous “Frozen Grand Central” prank that got so much play on YouTube.  Since we now have some appropriate mass transit, this year Phoenix joined in by getting about 100 people to ride the light rail as they would normally, the exception being that they were pantless.  I thought I would join the fun along with a bunch of great people I have met in the last year; a good time was had by all.  The local news was there as well dedicated photographers from our group so it was quite the laugh when we saw the footage on the local news later that day.

What I did NOT expect was this segment on the NATIONAL show “Fox and Friends Sunday” on the NATIONAL FOX NEWS CHANNEL; a friend called me Sunday morning and said “Uh, Wayne, I think I just saw you on national TV boarding a train with no pants on…”:

and then another friend let me know that they saw me on a New England news site boarding a train with no pants on!

and then another friend let me know that they saw me on a DUTCH news site boarding a train with no pants on!

So it looks like I finally got the local national INTERNATIONAL recognition I have wanted for so long 🙂

Here are some pics of the event as well from an excellent downtown Phoenix photographer, Tyson Crosbie.

And lastly, if that wasn’t enough, I ran into an old boss at the George and Dragon pub we went to after the event.  This is my former boss trying to talk to me, while, of course, I have no pants on:

What an odd day!  I hope to have a thousand more just like it 🙂

    The black socks are an especially nice touch. You must be over 60?

    Great stuff, Wayne! (oh, is that a double-entendre, or what?!?) You’ve inspired me and I’ve added “Improve Everywhere” to my Facebook! Next time I see you, I wonder if I’ll think of you different now? 🙂

    Way to go! You earned Phoeneix a wikipedia mention in the no pants day article about no-pants-day. Have you considered extreme ironing?

    Your old boss looks like he’s thinking “Jesus Christ, I actually hired this guy?”
