“We do understand that is is hard to avoid dancing when you have No Pants, but we do encourage participants to maintain the original spirit of the event, and act as if your missing pants had nothing to do with No Pants day, such as simply forgetting your pants at home, no pants is a new fashion trend, or our personal favorite, “My dog ate my pants”.
Make sure you have a place to keep your pants on your person and hidden, like a bag or backpack.
Also – if any figure of authority tells you to put your pants back on, do as they say. Unfortunately, indecency laws are entirely subjective and while we haven’t had any major problems in the past, we’d like to keep on DC Metro’s good side so the event can continue for another year. Let’s make our 8th No Pants year the best for DC!”
Ed. Note: Those who wish to equate taking photos of this event with the creepy guy who takes photos of the underpants of unsuspecting women and teens and then posts them to a porn site – don’t – it’s completely different.
