Classic underwear reveal, usually accidental, and tends to be accompanied by the above rhyme in film. Generally involves StockUnderwear, especially GoofyPrintUnderwear. This trope is usually for comedic intent, catching a character in their most embarrassing state. There's also CringeComedy present, as the situation is usually awkward.

[[folder: Live-Action TV]]
* On ''Series/HappyDays'', when the boys had to go for their army physicals and had to strip, Potsie's underwear had little hearts on them and Ralph's had a big lobster.
* On the first episode of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', Leonard and Sheldon go to retrieve Penny's TV from her heavily-muscular ex-boyfriend. The scene cuts to them leaving minus their pants.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic had a rather infamous PantyShot in ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights''. He was cosplaying [[Franchise/LegendOfZelda Link]] at the time in a tunic with no pants or leggings and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick and WebVideo/ObscurusLupa were forced to bring to his attention the fact that they could see his balls. Everyone on the commentaries lampshaded the {{fanservice}} of the scene, and Critic himself called back to it in his review of ''DuckTales'', claiming fond memories.

[[folder: Professional Wrestling]]
* Embarrassing underwear is a common trope in pro wrestling.
** In 2001, Wrestling/LanceStorm was pantsed by Wrestling/{{Edge}} and Wrestling/{{Christian}} to reveal he was wearing Power Rangers underwear.
** Roberto Rodriguez was once revealed to be wearing underwear with a picture of Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio on them.
** Wrestling/{{Goldust}} was stripped of his attire at ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} 12'' by [[Wrestling/RoddyPiper "Rowdy" Roddy Piper]] to reveal he was wearing women's underwear, but given the nature of the character, it was more creepy than funny.
** Wrestling/RicFlair has on more than one occasion been stripped down to his underwear, usually pastel-colored briefs.
** One ''Saturday Night's Main Event'' back in the 80's, Wrestling/JimmyHart got pulled out of his pants, revealing that he was wearing bright red briefs.
** Billy Gunn, Chuck Palumbo and [[Wrestling/RicoConstantino Rico]] got pantsed en masse by Wrestling/AlSnow, Maven and Wrestling/TorrieWilson to reveal they were all wearing skimpy thongs, going with their Ambiguously Gay gimmick.
* For women in wrestling, this usually means granny panties, as in inversion of the many {{Fanservice}} [[Characters/WWEDivas girls in wrestling]] who proudly wear thongs and have no problem showing them off.
** In 2002, Wrestling/MollyHolly had a few instances (two on TV, plus house shows) where she was revealed as wearing granny panties, to go with the prude character she was playing at the time.
** [[Characters/WWEDivas Ivory]] got stripped down to her underwear while she was in [[MoralGuardians Right To Censor]], which included granny panties with little flowers on them.
** Wrestling/VickieGuerrero was once revealed to be wearing granny panties with [[CatchPhrase "EXCUSE ME!"]] written on them.
