While going live for a news segment on ABC News breakfast show - Good Morning America - reporter Will Reeve was expecting it to be a normal piece-to-camera but perhaps now it is something he won't forget too soon.

Reeve dressed in a suit as seen in the early part of the segment was reporting on a story about chemist shops delivering prescriptions to people using drones amid lockdown due to COVID-19.

But as soon as his segment was nearing an end, the TV screen cut to show the two anchors and a long shot of Reeve where he could be seen sitting without pants - completely unaware.

The segment and Reeve's unintentional gaffe, broadcast on April 28, was possibly seen by millions live in the US.

Here's the video:


And as usual, it was swiftly noticed by people on Twitter who had a field day commenting on Reeve being caught pants down.

For those interested, Will Reeve is the son of popular American actor Christopher Reeve - the man who portrayed DC comics superhero Superman - in movies during the 70s.

Twitter was, again, quick to notice that too:

Will Reeve, on the other hand, was quite sporty in acknowledging the incident. He tweeted saying, I have arrived... in the most hilariously mortifying way possible.
