The ‘No Pants Subway Ride’ takes place every January and its popularity has only grown since the inaugural ride in 2002. Thousands of people participate from around the world and shed their pants for a few subway stops despite the frigid winter temperatures. This year was no different as NYC was going through one of the coldest weeks in history. A whopping 16 degrees on this day made it feel like Spring compared to the sub-zero temperatures we had experienced all week.

A few weeks prior I had reached out to porn star, Asa Akira, and filled her in with the details of the event–she was all about it. We both agreed we needed to put our own spin on the event to make it worth it and decided a scavenger hunt would be a lot of fun. The catch? The loser has to strip naked on the train and answer any 5 questions from the other person. My goal was simple, rig the shit out of the game to get the porn star naked in front of tons of people in the subway. Besides, I think we can all agree no one wants to see my dick, let alone see it in freezing temperatures. When all was said and done I have to admit it was a lot of fun and a special thanks to Asa Akira and Pornhub for sponsoring the video. We set the bar pretty high so next year should be interesting!

Subway floor sex

2018 looks like it’s off to a great start. Just a couple of people having sex in possibly the dirtiest location on earth. Nothing could top 2017 as the shittiest year ever, right….right??

I woke up Saturday morning like most people–in a great mood. It was the weekend, college football was on, and the night before I had setup a time and location to meet Tarron and Jordan in the subway to stream one of their performances live. If you missed it, Tarron and Jordan are two extremely talented kids who sing and play the bucket drums on the subway for money. A couple days earlier I had posted one of their videos on SubwayCreatures and it went viral. I was not only impressed with their performance but I wanted to help them out by giving them more exposure and hopefully finding them a connection in the music industry. I even setup a GoFundMe account that I was going to surprise them with so anyone watching on the live-stream could donate towards their performance. After an extensive online search and some help from random people, I was able to track down their mother on Facebook. I confirmed it was definitely her and she was very receptive to the idea of Tarron and Jordan live-streaming their performance so we made arrangements to meet the following day at Grand Central Station. The next afternoon I arrived a little early to the entrance of the Shuttle on the Grand Central side when I realized I had a huge problem. I wasn’t going to be able to stream anything live because my phone wasn’t getting service. I noticed there was a “Free TransitWiFi” sign on a subway pole and figured it was my only option to make this happen. I proceeded to link my phone to the public, non-secure WiFi connection…

After 15 minutes of waiting around I texted Tarron and Jordan’s mom and she told me they were already there. I searched everywhere but couldn’t find them and realized they must have been performing somewhere else and didn’t have their phones out. It was like two ships passing in the night. I gave it another 30 minutes and called it quits. No live-stream performance. No GoFundMe surprise. The worst part? Once I finally got cell phone service back the emails were already piling up with fraud notifications. I remember showing my friend who I was with and saying, “this is not good at all!” My gmail accounts already had their passwords hacked and changed as well as my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I knew I was fucked.  I immediately had to troubleshoot every account and answer all the correct security questions to gain access and create new passwords. That’s when I tried to login into the SubwayCreatures Instagram account and received the notification ‘the username SubwayCreatures does not exist’. I tried a few more times but kept getting the same result. I frantically called my girlfriend and asked her to go on Instagram and check SubwayCreatures and she confirmed the worst. It had been wiped.

I can’t really explain the feeling that hit me in that moment. Something less than finding out your dog died but something gut wrenching enough to make you realize this could be a huge game changer in your life. I don’t want to sound dramatic but SubwayCreatures is something I created and have been building all by myself for 7 years. It’s my baby. It’s something I never thought would get as big as it did and I’m so proud of it…but now I might have to start all over again. It’s something thousands of people enjoy looking at every day saying to themselves ‘that’s SO me’ or ‘I can totally relate to the person in that situation’. It’s as I like to call it, people watching from the safety of your phone. And whether you agree or disagree with the concept of the page, there’s this bad car accident phenomenon that makes you not want to look away. The point of this post is not for anyone to feel bad for me and I grew up with the philosophy that self-pity will never help anyone achieve anything. This is, after all, just an Instagram page and I will start over and build it up again if I have to. I simply want people to hear this story so they don’t make the same mistake I did. Make sure you only use a secure WiFi and protect yourself on all your devices. A lot of people always say ‘that will never happen to me’ and I can honestly say I was one of them. This situation could have been a LOT worse but it was still a lesson learned the hard way so please learn from my mistake.

What’s next? I’ve sent multiple messages and emails to Instagram and Facebook but as of this post have not heard back. I’ve also reached out to a couple other popular Instagram accounts I’ve heard this has happened to just to see what their approach to the issue was. If you have any ideas or connections I would love any help I can get. Please send me and email at SubwayCreatures@gmail.com. It’s a helpless feeling but I’m not going to stop trying until Instagram or Facebook straight up tell me it’s gone and there’s nothing they can do. When that happens, I’ll start the account all over again. Either way, SubwayCreatures will be back.

This video of a man and woman fighting on a Toronto subway platform got reported and removed from Instagram this afternoon. Not sure what the reasoning was but that’s why I have a website. It will now live in infamy here!

If you walk through the NYC subway you’ll more than likely come across someone busking on the platform–from performance art to struggling bands to teens just practicing their instruments outside their quite apartments. But it’s not often you are stopped cold in your tracks and the hair stands up on your arm from hearing a man belt out oldies such as Unchained Melody and A Change Is Gonna Come. Enter Mike Yung.

Mike has been singing since age eleven and performing in the subways of NYC for the last thirty-five years. He said one day he was convinced by a friend to head underground to make some money performing and it took off from there. Yung usually uses the 23rd St. station in Manhattan as a stage for his shows but is forced to relocate if there is a busker already in his spot. To call this man a ‘must-see act’ (or hear) is an understatement. Mike is the next big thing and clearly I’m not the only one who thinks so. Last year, one of Mike’s videos went viral and The Late Late Show host James Corden was so blown away, he invited him to perform on his show (video below).

And, yes, the man still doesn’t have a record deal as of this post. I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot more of Mike Yung in the future–at least I hope so.

If you are looking for more on Mike or his music, you can search Youtube or check him out on Spotify and iTunes. You can also catch him on Instagram/Twitter @mikeyungnyc

Just A Man Walking A Topless Girl [NSFW]

Posted: May 17, 2017 by subwaycreatures in Sexy, WTF

 

I mean, technically it’s legal in NYC for women to be topless.

WPIX: The man at the center of a now-viral video in which he was scolded by a grandmother who says she caught him masturbating aboard a No. 2 train has been arrested, police sources said Wednesday. Law enforcement sources identified the man as Kevin Cuffe, 23, of the Bronx.

Cuffe faces a charge of public lewdness in the Aug. 15 incident. That day, fellow subway rider Deanna Carter shamed him off a crowded northbound No. 2 train.

Carter said she witnessed Cuffe gazing at female riders on the train while holding a bag over his lap and keeping one hand in his pants with a visible erection.

“He’s actually touching himself and I’m saying is he really doing this right now?” she recalled to PIX11 News. “There’s a train full of people and there’s children on the train.”

Carter posted video of the encounter on Facebook and it quickly amassed millions of views. As of midday Wednesday, that footage had been watched more than 3 million times.

According to police, Cuffe also was charged in an alleged incident that happened on Dec. 16, 2015, in which he’s accused of engaging in the same act. In that case, PIX11 viewer Nicole De’Chabert captured Cuffe on cellphone video allegedly fondling himself aboard a Manhattan-bound No. 2 train. De’Chabert never reported the incident to police but instead posted the video on Facebook to warn her female friends. But after watching PIX11’s report in which Carter recounted her subway encounter, De’Chabert recognized the subject of the latest video.

“When I looked very closely I said, that’s the same guy I’ve seen many months ago over the holiday season,” she told PIX11 News in an exclusive interview Aug. 17. NYPD investigated both incidents, which led to Cuffe’s arrest a day later. The suspect, who has a criminal record, is being charged with two counts of public lewdness. He’s scheduled to appear in court next month.

Oh and if you missed the original video, here it is:

 

Well, I’m pretty sure that’s not how this guy expected this to play out. Absolutely stuffed in a locker by this woman and probably rightfully so. To be honest I don’t know what happened before the video but this looks like a face of guilt if I’ve ever seen one.

It should go without saying but keep your hand off your dick in public and at this point, just be glad you still have one.
