This is for those of you who think Fuse's "Pants-Off Dance-Off" went off the air far too quickly. For those burdened by bottoms that bind. For those longing for fanny freedom. This Sunday belongs to you.

Throughout the city, the 13th annual No Pants Subway ride will see commuters with but one mission: Riding sans pants.

Where they keep that MTA card may be a matter of personal preference, but it all begins at 3 p.m., with the endpoint Union Square by 4. To be clear, the ride is decidedly not about shunning all items of clothing below the waist. Just those darn dungarees.

Organized by Improv Everywhere, meeting points are in Astoria, Park Slope, Central Park and several other locales. The group says that more than 4,000 people participated in the 2013 NYC slacks snubbing.

Some 60 cities around the world — from Bangalore to Buenos Aires, Warsaw to Washington D.C. —  are participating, according to the New York-based Improv Everywhere.

On its website, the organization lists just two rules: "Willing to take pants off on subway" and "Able to keep a straight face about it." Best of luck with the second one.
