A "no-pants" flash mob erupted in Hangzhou's subway on Jan. 12, the first such event in the city. Just after 10 boys stepped onto the subway, they began removing their pants in the train compartment.
“It is an awkward matter to deal with, given that they took their pants off on the train,” said Wu Ting, office manager of the Hangzhou Subway Group, adding that such behavior is not encouraged, even though it did not disturb the public order. Meanwhile, some net users adopted a skeptical stance toward the behavior, calling it uncivilized.
The idea of the so-called No-Pants Subway Ride originated in America, and has since swept across the world, maximizing shock value while at the same time making life a little more interesting.
