Amid the Coronavirus pandemic, people have been working from home, and that includes the people in the news business as well. Of course, working from home can come with its own advantages – having an unlimited diet, lying in bed and wearing whatever you would want to.
However, if you are in the TV business, you would find it extremely important that you would not be able to enjoy those perks. An incident where a reporter caught not wearing pants on a live show has further proved it! An ABC News reporter had to endure a lot of embarrassment due to the fact that the video where he appeared pantless went viral.
CNN reported that the reporter Will Reeve appeared on the Good Morning America on Tuesday. He was doing a segment on how drones are being used by pharmacies for delivering the necessary medicines. And he was caught with no pants on during a live broadcast.
The viewers were quick enough to notice that and soon took to Twitter to call him out. The reporter was on the screen for around 30 seconds, but a few of the eagle-eyed viewers were quick enough to notice the blunder. Reeve was acting as his own cameraman, and an improper camera angle proved to be a culprit.
While he had a buttoned-up jacket with the proper background that suited a TV appearance, but down under he was wearing just the shorts, and missed pants. Reeve perhaps did not give it a thought as he thought that the camera would not catch him “below the waist”.
People soon took to Twitter and other social media to call him out, and some of them were quite hilarious at best.

Will Reeve was quick to reply back with the comment, that he had arrived in one of the most hilarious manners.

He also assured his viewers in s rather tongue in cheek that he was wearing shorts even though the pants were missing.
While it came as a pleasant respite during the gloomy situations that the pandemic has thrown us into, it does appear to be a wrong camera angle that got the reporter in.
