‘Is this real?!’ NSFW Grease 2 wardrobe malfunction goes viral and we can’t believe this made the final edit

Eagle-eyed fans have noticed a rather, er, ballsy wardrobe malfunction in the Grease sequel which had many gasping and wondering how on Earth this got past the film’s final edit.

Grease 2 is the 1982 sequel to the original smash hit and had Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield in the lead roles – and, folks, it is an absolute cult classic, after receiving pretty harsh reviews and flopping at the box office.

We suppose it did have a hard act to follow in regards to Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta’s original turn at Rydell High.

However, Grease 2 has one thing going for it that we can’t say the OG does and that is one heck of a NSFW wardrobe malfunction that’s seemingly slipped under the radar for decades.

One very talented punter has realised that in one scene – shot at the school’s running track when the twin cheerleaders chase down Maxwell’s character Michael – one lad who is taking on the hurdles forgot his pants.

And, dear reader, all it takes to have us clutching our pearls in shock is some energetic hurdle-jumping and, well, some items of one’s anatomy have clearly broken free from the shackles of the extra’s white short-shorts.

FYI – the video below contains a fair bit of nudity, so do proceed with caution if you want to watch.

The anonymous extra very quickly pulls his running shorts down and jogs out of scene – and, evidently, didn’t alert the director to the moment and has kept this moment to himself all these years.

That was until actor/writer Justin Root shared the mishap on Twitter earlier this month.

Justin also uploaded the clip which came in both normal speed and slow-motion for those who really want to see the bounce up close. Thank you? We think?

Side note – Metro.co.uk painstakingly went through Grease 2 with a fine-tooth comb to find this moment and, we can confirm that yes, some balls do break free.

Viewers of the film reacted to Justin’s Tweet with zest and frankly, more than a whiff of bewilderment, as one wrote: ‘I’ve seen this movie at least 600 times, no exaggeration. Thought I knew every frame. Wow.’

Another very accurately asked what the editors were doing the day this scene was in the cutting room, writing: ‘Excuse me? How did THAT slide..?’

The moment is clearly going to influence viewing habits from here on out, as another replied: ‘Well thanks for the heads up I’ll make sure to watch this scene in slowmotion from now on.’
