Bare legs and briefs filled train cars from Chicago to China Sunday as passengers travelled trouserless -- provoking laughs and perplexed looks -- for the 13th annual "No Pants Subway Ride."

Commuters in some 60 cities braved public transportation in their undies for the stunt, which has gone global since its first staging by US group Improv Everywhere in New York in 2002.
