If you happened to have the eyes of a falcon, you may have caught the extremely brief nipple slip that occurred as the cast of The Office came up to accept the award for best comedy series at last night's Emmy Awards. Now, don't get your hopes up, it wasn't Jenna Fisher. I know, I'm bummed too.
It was, in fact, Mindy Kaling, who plays the very annoying Kelly (aka "the Indian girl," to be completely politically incorrect). After hugging another person on stage, her dress was accidentally pulled down, causing the aforementioned brief nipple slip.
The real question, however, is what will the ramifications of this inadvertent flash of skin mean for NBC, and the producers of the Emmy telecast. As you may remember, the "wardrobe malfunction" heard round the world ended up costing CBS and MTV a pretty penny when Janet Jackson flashed her sun-shield emblazoned, pierced nipple to the world.
Now, I'm certain that 99.9% of people out there in TV land missed it (even I missed it, but one of those eagle-eyed Egotastic! readers caught it, and dropped me a line), but you can be sure that some self-important, puritanical prude caught it, and will be filing a complaint with the FCC, just as surely as I'm posting this video. Oh, did I not mention there was a video?
Oh, and don't forget about the 266 pictures from the Emmy Awards. Sorry, no nipple slips there.
