Good ol' NBC.
Add this to the list of the network's woes during the 2012 London Olympics: During a women’s water polo battle last week, the network aired a wardrobe malfunction.
If you can call it that.
In the Spain-U.S. game, a player for the latter had her bathing suit grabbed and yanked underwater, resulting in a nipple slip - or full-on breast - on live TV:
This water polo player's wardrobe didn't really malfunction ... it was just forcibly removed.
Good times. As NBC's admittedly awesome underwater cameras aired the intense action, they no doubt gave perceptive viewers more than they bargained for, and guaranteed themselves a nice fine from the FCC. Enjoy!
For what it's worth:
This kind of "defense" is par for the course in water polo, it's just not common for cameras to broadcast it to a billion people worldwide, and ...
The game ended in a 9-9 tie. U-S-A! U-S-A!
