Arguably a subtrope of HilarityEnsues. Will often (though not necessarily) be performed by a FanserviceExtra. In-universe, the victim invariably tends to be the AlphaBitch. Similar to HandOrObjectUnderwear, but in those cases the stripping tends to be self-inflicted or not quite as sudden, and what kids tend to eventually graduate to after gags regarding ComedicUnderwearExposure.

Finally, the third example occurs when Ross reveals that he saw her. She's only mildy embarrassed, partly because she's already re-dressed by this point, and partly because [[AmicableExes he's seen her naked before]].

* A downplayed example in ''Series/{{Friends}}''. Rachel spends an evening naked in her apartment, unaware that Ross can see her from across the street. When he reveals that he knew, she's only mildy embarrassed, partly because she's already re-dressed by this point, and partly because [[AmicableExes he's seen her naked before]]. There's also a tongue-in-cheek example from the same scene. When she first strips, she role pays, pretending to freak out a little.

* A couple of downplayed example examples in ''Series/{{Friends}}''. Dressed in a bath robe, Rachel slightly freaks out for a moment when it accidentally opens. Realising that no-one's around to see her, and remembering Phoebe teasing her earlier, she takes the robe off completely and spends an the evening naked in her apartment, unaware that Ross can see her from across the street. When he reveals that he knew, she's only mildy embarrassed, partly because she's already re-dressed by this point, and partly because [[AmicableExes he's seen her naked before]]. There's also a tongue-in-cheek apartment. The second example from the same scene. When occurs as she first strips, strips. As a joke, she role pays, pretending to freak out a little.

** More classic examples occur in an episode where various characters get walked in on while taking showers, including Rachel, Joey and Monica, all of who have the standard freakout. Then Joey's dad gets walked in on by Monica...and far from being embarrassed he appears rather pleased to see her.

* A downplayed example in ''Series/{{Friends}}''. Rachel spends an evening naked in her apartment, unaware that Ross can see her from across the street. When he reveals that he knew, she's only midly embarrassed, partly because she's already re-dressed by this point, and partly because ((AmicableExes he's seen her naked before)). There's also a tongue-in-cheek example from the same scene. When she first strips, she pretends to freak out a little as a form of role play.

* Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan (Sally Kellerman) had an especially memorable one in ''Film/{{MASH}}'', when she went to take a shower in the shower tent and the heroes (and other nurses) pranked her, dropping the tent to wall to reveal her naked and ironically applauding as she tried to cover herself. After putting on a robe she runs off to bawl at Colonel Blake about the lack of discipline in the unit, and Kellerman played Hot Lips's humiliation absolutely straight, prompting director Robert Altman to expand her role (because that was going to have been her final scene in the film.)
