A Commonwealth Games dancer who suffered a wardrobe malfunction as a camera zoomed in on her bum later laughed off the incident.
Australian dancer Georgia Lear performed in the opening ceremony for the 2018 games at the Carrara Stadium in Gold Coast but was turned into a meme after an unfortunate incident during the performance. The then 19-year-old exposed her behind to 1.5billion people after suffering a mishap as she ducked under a towel.
To add insult to injury, a camera zoomed in on her as she ran under the towel after dancing to Ricki Lee's Technicolour as part of the games' curtain raiser.

Posting to social media after the incident, via The Sun, she explained: "Last night I was feeling really BUMMED… BUTT that's all BEHIND me now! I hope you all had a CRACKing good time watching the ceremony. Don’t forget the camera adds 5kgs… yes it was me!!!!"
Lear later admitted she knew she had "a bit of a wedgie" during the performance but was unaware she had exposed her rear to the billions of viewers watching around the world.
Soon after finishing her role in the ceremony, Lear realised what had happened and learned she had been turned into a meme on social media.

Speaking to News.com, she admitted: "I'm laughing it off. At first it was pretty humiliating but it could’ve happened to anyone else. You've gotta brush it off."
Viewers coined the phrase "#a**gate" on social media after the incident, with another labelling the ceremony "a cracker of a show". One Twitter user even posted a screenshot of the malfunction and wrote: "Gidday and welcome to the Gold Coast."
Despite the social media response, Lear remained in good spirits and added: "My parents have always taught me that everything happens for a reason so what can you do, everyone's seen it now so there's no point hiding and having a cry, you just have to make the most of a bad moment you know?
"Obviously seeing your bum in front of 1.5billion people isn't too nice but everyone's been really supportive and seen the funny side of it, which is nice."
