An ABC News reporter appeared on Tuesday's "Good Morning America" without wearing pants, providing an unintentional moment of levity for viewers.

"Trying to be efficient, I got ready for a post-GMA workout a little too soon this morning," reporter Will Reeve explained in a statement posted to Twitter. "The camera angle, along with friends, family and several hundred strangers on social media made me rethink my morning routine."

It wasn't immediately apparent that Reeve, who was clad in a blazer and button-down shirt while broadcasting from his home, wasn't wearing pants. Yet towards the end of his segment about pharmacies using drones to deliver prescriptions to patients, Reeve shifted his bare leg into camera-view.

Viewers flooded social media with messages to Reeve, the son of late actor Christopher Reeve, with many commenting about how relatable his faux pas was.

"I know exactly how you feel man! I’ve lost count of the days & dates!" tweeted one woman. "Thank you for the laugh! I’ll remember this FOREVER."

"That's funny," wrote another. "Who can be bothered to put on a full suit in quarantine?"

Reeves did not respond to NBC News' request for comment, but assured one viewer who instructed him to put on pants that he was wearing shorts.

"I have ARRIVED," Reeve tweeted. "In the most hilariously mortifying way possible."
