Coronavirus: ABC’s Will Reeve caught sans pants during live GMA video call mishap
ABC correspondent Will Reeve has gone viral after appearing on his live segment on Good Morning America without any pants while working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Reeve, the son of late Hollywood actor Christopher Reeve, was appearing on camera with GMA hosts Amy Robach and Michael Strahan when eagle-eyed viewers caught a glimpse of the reporter’s mishap.
Towards the end of the segment, he unknowingly exposed his bare thigh on camera, appearing to wear nothing but his boxers.
“Trying to be efficient I got ready for a post-GMA workout a little too soon this morning. The camera angle, along with my friends, family and several hundred strangers on the social media made me rethink my morning routine,” Reeve said in a tweet explaining his video call faux pas.
“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,” he added.
As millions of people around the world are forced to work from home amid the global coronavirus pandemic, video-conferencing platforms like Skype and Zoom have seen a spike in their users and sessions.
Zoom’s daily users ballooned to more than 200 million in March from a previous maximum total of 10 million, the video conferencing app’s boss Eric Yuan said earlier this month according to a Reuters report, as it fought to dispel concerns over privacy and “Zoombombing.”
