Christopher Reeve’s son has gone live on air without wearing trousers, completely unaware that viewers could see his bottom half.
On Good Morning America, Christopher Reeve’s son Will Reeve decided to take a video call – which happened to be live on air – dressed only from the waist up.
Hilariously, Will had absolutely no idea that the viewers could see his bottom half and lack of trousers.
The later Superman star’s son was filming a 30-second live segment from his home, discussing an initiative that drones could start delivering prescriptions to the elderly during the coronavirus pandemic.
Initially, viewers couldn’t see Will’s bottom half as his dignity was perfectly hidden behind a banner at the bottom of the screen and a mid-shot camera angle.
Yet halfway through his conversation with Amy Robach, the camera switched to a wide-angle shot and a smaller graphic at the bottom. This revealed that Will’s lower half was trouser free.
Oblivious, he carried on his discussion: “What is an innovative, high-tech way to get people their medicine quickly while promoting social distancing?”
He then exclaimed: “Drones!”
Later on, the mishap was addressed and he promised fans that they were workout shorts for a “post-GMA workout” he had been planning.
He took to Twitter to share a screenshot of a note he had made. His caption said: “When WFH goes wrong (or, your self-framed live shot goes too wide). Hope everyone got a much needed laugh.”

Additionally, the note read: “Trying to be efficient I got ready for a post-GMA workout a little too soon this morning.
“The camera angle, along with friends, family and several hundred strangers on the social media made me rethink my morning routine.
“Any sartorial tips from these people who are wearing a belt, trousers and shoes during their work video calls at home are most welcome.
“Now, back to work. Wearing pants.”
Even more amusingly, it appears that when the show took to a split-screen between the hosts and Will, Amy appeared to have noticed his lack of pants as she pulled a face.
Good Morning Britain series director Erron Gordon also noticed the blunder, commenting on Twitter: “Our colleagues at @GMA with a helpful reminder to frame your Skype/FaceTime properly if you’re going commando”.
One person commented: “Will Reeves is many of us right now”.
Another viewer said: “@GMA why did y’all do Will Reeves like this?! Lol”.
A third wrote: “I think most of us is doing this, but using care not to expose our lower half”.
