Ce dimanche, les Londoniens ont pris le métro... sans pantalon

A Londres, ce dimanche, de nombreux voyageurs ont pris le "Tube" en sous-vêtements. Une tradition plutôt insolite.

Après deux ans d’absence, c’était le retour, ce dimanche, du "No Pants Subway Ride", soit un trajet de métro sans pantalon, en français. Cette tradition, mise de côté durant le Covid, avait été lancée en 2022 par des humoristes new-yorkais qui avaient fait semblant de ne pas se connaître et avaient pris le métro sans leur pantalon.

Depuis, des centaines de Londoniens leur ont emboîté le pas. Ce qui donne des scènes cocasses dans les tunnels et les rames du métro de la capitale britannique.

"Il n’y a pas de raison derrière cela. Nous voulons simplement créer un moment de plaisir et faire sourire les autres voyageurs", explique l’organisateur Ivan Markovic.
