A “wardrobe malfunction” during a 2006 New Year’s Eve broadcast apparently exposed the Japanese public to a little more than they were expecting. Several showgirl-style dancers performing with DJ Ozma unexpectedly went “topless” during his song “Bounce With Me.”

The performance was part of a New Year’s Eve special on the Japanese television network NHK. According to a Reuters report, NHK TV was flooded with viewer complaints after the broadcast and had to issue an official apology.
