A Brazilian carnival queen suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction after her minuscule thong pinged open and fell off in the middle of a parade.
Tarine Lopes, was performing in front of the crowds when the nightmare scenario happened.
But she carried on like a trooper, holding her underwear in place while she continued dancing in the street.
The disaster was captured on camera and shows Tarine, from Sao Paulo Samba School, clutching the broken green fabric close to her body while parading around in giant red feathery wings.
The video shows the parade in full swing as thousands of people take part in the colourful carnival .
With music blaring and people singing, the road is full of dancers shaking their bodies and twirling to the sounds.
But then the green tape pings off almost revealing too much to the watching crowds in the outfit which had already left very little to the imagination.
The close shave on Saturday took place during the carnival , Sambodromo do Anhembi.
Tarine, who is from the city of Porto Seguro in the north-eastern state of Bahia, said: “Unfortunately my thong came unstuck in the middle of the avenue but people couldn’t stop.
“I had to keep on dancing while I tried to keep it from falling off completely.”
Her outfit already covered the bare minimum and saw her body wrapped with green tape with the rest of her covered in gold glitter.
In an interview after the parade, Mail Online reports she had to wrap a shirt around herself to create a makeshift skirt.
She said: “I was really worried at first, but I carried on with my samba and did what I could so as not to stand out too much.”
Tarine is the samba school’s godmother which means she leads the dancers in front of the float.
The parade told the story of Adam and Eve and her outfit was designed to represent the forbidden fruit.
