In these coronavirus times, Zoom has become an essential tool for life and work.
But it has also led to some amusement, like when actor Yosuke Kubozuka recently got drunk during a live Zoom session with fans and fell asleep.
People like to opt for virtual backgrounds to hide anything embarrassing that may appear on camera behind them, but what about something in front? And between their legs?
NMB48’s Chihiro Kawakami suffered this manner of misfortune when she gave fans much more than they were expecting during a Zoom session.
Her skirt had hitched itself up so high while she sitting that she ended up flashing her white panties to viewers.
This is a classic panchira — an upskirt view of panties — that is so yearned for by fetishists in Japan.
The video was streamed live on June 18, but you can still watch it on YouTube. You have to watch very carefully — something at which, fortunately, netizens excel — but the patient viewer is rewarded at around the 56:40 mark.
Should we coin a new subgenre for this? Zoom-panchira?
The coronavirus pandemic and resulting lockdown has hit AKB48 and its sister groups hard, since large-scale live concerts are still out of the question and the handshaking events that were such a major part of the fandom (and economics of the groups) are also impossible to imagine returning soon.
