Sometimes it’s good not to be famous. Imagining all our most embarrassing 18-year-old mistakes playing out on the world stage is enough to send us cowering into our camo snuggie with a box of wine, never to leave the house again! So we can’t even fathom the embarrassment Calum Hood must be suffering now that a video of his, um, instrument is all over the Internet.
The 18-year-old 5 Seconds of Summer bass player got a little too comfy with the Snapchat app the other day and sent a video of his erection to a female fan. She must have been ready and waiting, because she recorded it for posterity before the moment could disappear into Snapchat’s ether. We’re pretty sure you can guess the outcome, but we’ll give you a hint: viral video.
For his part, Calum is taking his nekked Internet debut well. While we’d deny deny deny as we cry cry cried into our pill bottle, Calum is just laughing the incident off. “Least ya know what it looks like now,” he tweeted.
Then he reminded us that we should all feel creepy even talking about his nether regions by tweeting, “I'm still just a teenage kid learning from mistakes.” On that note, we’re going to go Google naked pics of George Clooney to make ourselves feel less Cougar Town.
Is Calum taking the right approach by laughing it off, or should he have denied the whole thing? Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
