'No pants on Subway' video more viral than Rihanna hits

The global 'No pants' movement took the web by storm this week with their new video that puts hit artists like Rihanna in a firm 2nd place.

The 'No Pants Subway ride' features thousands of people who collectively took off their pants in major cities around the world to mark the 11th Annual No Pants Subway ride. While the cultural phenomenon may seem bizarre to many, the video has certainly caught the attention of the web, passing 4 million views in just 72 hours. That's more viral than Rihanna videos which don't get more than 1 million views a day at their most viral.
