On Nov. 5, a Red Cross representative walked into a Copenhagen cafe and asked people to hand over their pants in honor of Drop Your Pants Day.

Although patrons were skeptical at first, quite a few men and at least one woman removed their pants — in the middle of the cafe — and handed them over.

The clothing donations were resold in thrift stores and distributed in disaster areas, according to the Danish Red Cross.
