LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Public transit users took to the Metro Sunday in their skivvies for the annual No Pants Subway Ride.

KNX 1070′s Claudia Peschiutta went in search for people who dropped trou.

 “Everybody’s doing it,” said a man named Mixy. “Why not? You live once in life.”

Mixy seemed a little nervous and excited when he took off his pants at the Hollywood and Highland station.

Another guy, apparently not a fan of the annual pants-free event, sprayed both of us with his water bottle.

“Some people don’t know how to have fun in life,” said Mixy.

Danielle was standing nearby with her two young children.

“It’s interesting. I was kind of hesitant to bring them but what the Hell? That’s Hollywood,” said Danielle, “They’re going to be exposed to it eventually.”

The event was started by an improv group in New York that describes itself as a “prank collective.” The No Pants Ride has now spread to cities around the world.
