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:

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:
He's Superman's son. He can do whatever he wants. #WillReeve— LaQuan Ippolito (@LaquanIppolito) April 29, 2020
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.
At least put on sweatpants!' Superman star Christopher Reeve's son Will appears on GMA with NO PANTS on after failing to realize that his bare legs and boxers could be seen on camera. pic.twitter.com/oDXVphDox2— Lilian Chan (@bestgug) April 28, 2020
