The Losing Pants in Public Routine

The timeworn routine of a man losing his pants in public can be traced as far back as a 1905 Dutch comedy, The Misadventure of a French Gentleman Without Pants.  The routine is being kept alive by a number of sitcom writers.   

The Big Bang Theory "The Pants Alternative" (2010)

Mad Love "The Young and The Reckless" (2011)
