Anyone who has had a formal zoom meeting of late will be able to relate. It's been business up top, party down below, as we (mostly) abandon formalities working from home. But ABC correspondent Will Reeve got caught out getting a little too comfortable WFH.
Reeve was reporting from home when he appeared on “Good Morning America”. The segment was on drones delivering medicine and other pharmaceuticals during lockdown. Speaking to Michael Strahan and Amy Robach, viewers at home quickly noticed that he appeared to be wearing a suit and jacket, but no pants.

Reeve clearly thought the camera could only see his top half, completely unaware that his legs were on display during the report.
He later tweeted explaining he was wearing shorts and getting ready to go the gym.
He explained: "Trying to be efficient I got ready for a post-GMA workout a little too soon this morning. The camera angle, along with friends, and several hundred strangers on 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."
When WFH goes wrong (or, your self-framed live shot goes too wide).
Hope everyone got a much needed laugh 😂 pic.twitter.com/GbyLBhL7Be
