Instead you might manage to snaffle a seat on a crowded tram only to look up and come face to full frontal with a pair of boxer shorts, jocks or skimpy panties.
The project will all start when a whole lot of people, who do not necessarily know each other but are coordinating through social media, take their daks off and pretend that they are behaving absolutely normally as they ride on your tram.
Apparently all you need to participate is the ability to have fun and to keep a straight face.
The idea started in 2002, in New York City, when a group of fun-loving friends got together to see what reactions they might get. You can find out about the project in the video below.
They got on the subway at random points, in their underwear acting otherwise normally and pretending not to know each other.
The silly thing is New York in January it is the grip of winter so the rest of their attire included jackets, mittens, scarves and hats.
Thankfully in Melbourne no one will have to freeze their butt off.
Since that first No Pants Subway Ride it has become an annual event staged not only in New York but in over 50 countries all over the world.
But the burning question in Melbourne, now the clock has ticked over to 2013, is where in the hell will they store their Mykis?
If you happen to see this event would love to hear from you in the comments section.
I'm disappointed that I had gastro while this amazing event was going on :)
If I was on that tram my toes would be curling so hard they'd be making crevices in the bottom of my feet. But at the same time, I just LOVE the idea! The stupidity of it makes me have hope for the future of the human race :P
