We will have our official mission report up in a day or two with the best photos and video from the NYC ride and beyond. In the meantime, I thought it would be nice to compile all of the links to photos, videos, and news articles from around the world here in one place. It’s pretty hilarious how much press our silly event received. If you have a link that I’ve missed, add it in the comments.

Adelaide, Australia No Pants 2k8 Mission Report
As an editor, I spend a lot of time surfing the Net looking for cool stuff to tell my readers. Finding out about events like this is what makes my job enjoyable. Keep having fun!
Just finished my compilation of my video footage from the Chicago event, you can check it out on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpSQbQetrIE
Overall it was definitely a good time, much better than sitting on my ass on a saturday afternoon. I hope I can get involved in future events!
Damn. I gotta stop working on Saturdays.
I don’t see me D:
Some other DC media:
Jimmy, that last link is hilarious. I love that the ABC news reporter thinks that the improv group traveled down from New York and next year plans to travel to Boston. No one does any research to get the facts accurate! It just takes a simple googling of “no pants subway.”
My boyfriend shot this video in the bathroom at Barnes and Noble. This guy is pretty great.
Here’s a letter to the editor for you from Salt Lake:
My favorite of all the links above is the Turkish report (Turkey, of all places!). I can just imagine the people in some small Turkish village shaking their heads, thinking “only in America are people crazy enough to do something like this!” It’s funny b/c I was actually part of the DC group and before the event, I was interviewed by an Indian television crew that told me that their report would be broadcast in New Delhi. Somewhere amongst the masses, their are a bunch of Indian mothers wondering who will marry their kids after they de-pants on the Delhi metro next year!
If anyone knows where I can get the pictures from the 6 train, 7th car, it would be really great if you can let me know. Theres this one picture of me I’m dying to find. If you find out where the set is, let me know, email@example.com
Does anyone have photos from the R train, car 1? I know I someone with a camera snapping photos, but I haven’t see any yet.
You have one article from the New York Observer, but this one from yesterday includes a picture!
Man, I wish I lived in NYC!
Here’s another San Francisco set (crappy phone-cam quality) on Flickr:
