The President of Croatia Doesn’t Seem to Care That This Man’s Pants Fell Down During a Photo-Op
Croatia's president barely seemed to notice that her honoree's pants fell down during a photo-op.
On any given day, there’s a lengthy list of things normal people have reason to be afraid will happen to them. It’s entirely possible, for example, someone could innocently sleep through their alarm before an important meeting, or call an acquaintance they know pretty well by the wrong name, or accidentally hit reply all to an office-wide email.
And then there are the nearly impossible-to-predict scenarios that usually only happen in cartoons, like when a character slips on a banana peel, or forgets to get dressed before going to school, or has their pants fall down while receiving an award from their country’s president.
Oh, wait. That last one actually happened Tuesday when Ivan Zvonimir Cicak, who heads the Croatian Helsinki Committee for Human Rights, was being honored for his work. Cicak did not appear to be wearing a belt while posing for a photo-op with Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.
Luckily, Grabar-Kitarovic presented Cicak with an award that was large enough to protect him from too much major embarrassment.
And the head of state — Croatia’s first female president — barely acknowledged the mishap, offering only a slight downward glance as Cicak stooped down and pulled up his slacks.
