ABC News reporter Will Reeve, the son of Superman actor Christopher Reeve, made a lesson out of his “pantless” viral video.
After being caught quite literally with his pants down while appearing virtually on Good Morning America, Reeve discussed how to avoid similar mistakes when filming yourself from home. Reeve admitted that, since he was not working with a cameraperson, he set up his video equipment himself. “A headline reminder: For anyone who’s using Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, anything with a camera, make sure you frame your shot,” he said.
During a report on pharmacies’ use of drones to deliver medications, Reeve was shown reporting from his study. However, while he was fully clothed from the waist up, he was wearing a pair of boxer shorts.
“Trying to be efficient, I got ready for a post-GMA workout a little too soon this morning,” Reeve tweeted, explaining the slip-up. “The camera angle, along with friends, family and several hundred strangers on the social media made me rethink my morning routine.”
The video of Will Reeve’s “pantless” moment on Good Morning America has been posted multiple times on YouTube. One version of the video posted by NewscastStudio has received 829,000 views.
