Jake Gyllenhaal Half-Naked This Week

Prepare to scoff or salivate, depending on whether you like him or not: actor Jake Gyllenhaal, along with several other famous faces (and even more not-so-famous hipsters), is taking the subway half-naked this week in participation with the 10th Annual No Pants Subway Ride.

Most people say that the ride is just an annual flash-mob fad that people like to get in on for fun. Some, however, claim it’s to make riding public transportation sexier—and to encourage other people to ride public transit, too.

If that’s the case, though, don’t you think after 10 tries, if it’s not working, why bother to continue the event?
