ABC News correspondent Will Reeve did a live report on Tuesday from his home that has since gone viral because the shot accidentally revealed that the 27-year-old, who was wearing a suit coat and collared shirt, wasn't wearing pants.
Many reporters are doing live reports from their homes while stay-at-home orders remain in effect in a number of states due to the coronavirus. Most shots show the journalists from the chest up.
But Reeve's camera was angled down and revealed that the correspondent was not wearing any pants as he sat on a stool.
Reeve, the son of the late "Superman" actor Christopher Reeve, immediately generated reactions on social media after the moment on "Good Morning America" went viral.
"I have ARRIVED," Reeve wrote in a tweet, responding to reactions across social media. "In the most hilariously mortifying way possible."
"They’re shorts I promise," he also wrote.
