Commuting in the 21st Century-

56 Meters deep into the arteries of Barcelona’s metro grid, the station at Iglesia Major is impressive in both its feat of engineering and futuristic aesthetic.

Comprised of four levels, glass elevators zip up and down the rails creating an effect which can be astonishing and terrorizing that the future is here.

Organized by BarnaMob.com, 14 different routes were set up in an effort to coordinate an army of  200 underpant-wearing city dwellers going about their daily lives.  At 4:37 NPT (NoPantsTime) Barcelona along with 31 other cities dropped their pants,  stuffed them into their bags and kept walking. ( At 4:37 I was switching trains when it was time to show some legs- with my Andrew Christian Undies ) I hit the escalators and made my line transfer walking the long corridors and even dropping a Euro in the guitar player’s tip bucket. 

The group, which weaved through the metro system leaving little to the imagination, got the sort of reactions one would come to expect from a city that is used to “seeing it all”. From a security guard asking me if this was some sort of protest, (I answered it was quiet warm in the metro and I just needed some air) to people breaking out in applause to a woman grabbing her kids and jumping off the metro at what probably wasn’t her stop. The event was covered by all the local new channels as well as newspapers and even 1 pervert blogger who snapped a picture of my crotch. 

At 35 degrees, the walk from the Passeig de Gracia exit to the center of Plaza Catalunya was a bit nippy but it was well worth it just to see people’s reaction. Next year my personal mission is to get everyone I know to do this! Including my Catalan teacher, and my flatmates. 

In the process I met some great people  all with a great sense of humor and a wild streak. If you or some one you love  participated in the event hit me up on facebook and keep in touch! Remember friends don’t let friends ride the metro wearing pants…
