A woman working from home unwittingly showed flesh at the sight of her astonished colleagues during a video conference that went awry.

She reaches the bathroom to answer the call of nature, removing her pants and sitting down as her colleague continues to talk to the group.
After a few excruciating seconds in which Jennifer’s coworkers visibly squirm, Jennifer herself finally realizes she’s been caught with her pants down and hastily hijacks her laptop.
“I did not see anything!” announces a male colleague and another says, “Poor Jennifer” while the woman presenting seems to have no idea of the bathroom blunder.
The calamity of the conference call
While it is not clear whether the ‘poor Jennifer’s’ video call disaster took place while she was working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic, the viral clip – it has been viewed over 7 years, 5 million times – is a telling reminder for those who start working remotely.
