The mystery of Boobgate has been solved!
As you scrolled bleary-eyed down your Facebook feed this week, avoiding posts about impending nuclear winter and various mindless memes from relatives you thought you’d hidden, you may have read a headline about footage of a topless woman being screened accidentally on a TV in the background during a BBC newscast in the U.K.
Popular nude scene online archivist Mr. Skin identified the video as a sex scene from True Blood, featuring main star Anna Paquin.
“MY BREASTS!! SO FUNNY ON SO MANY LEVELS,” she tweeted Friday. “Now that I know what u guys were talking about…this some of the funniest s–t I’ve seen in a while!!! Thanks for the giggle! #FreeTheNipple.”

Stephen Moyer, her real-life husband and former co-star and onscreen love interest (who does not appear in the scene), retweeted her.
“Ya know you’ve made when…. your t-ts photo bomb the news at 10,” she continued.
And the jokes continued.
“Good question for @BBCNews and @HBO does
#photoboobing count as “syndication”?” she asked.
