5 Seconds of Summer bassist Calum Hood found himself in a rather vulnerable position yesterday after a Snapchat video surfaced showing the young musician completely in the buff.

The revealing video quickly went viral after making its way on Vine, leaving fans to rush to the boy bander's defense and even start Twitter trends like #WeLoveYouCalum and #WeDontCareCalumWeAreHereForYou."

Hood addressed the full frontal leaked pics on Twitter, playfully saying, "Least ya know what it looks like now."

But he followed up with a more serious message to his young fans: "I'm still just a teenage kid learned from mistakes."

This marks the second below-the-belt scandal to hit the band in recent weeks.


At the Teen Choice Awards earlier this month, the band accepted their surfboard award in a pre-recorded video that showed the four rockers wearing only bath towels wrapped around their waists.

Some fans noticed that Ashton Irwin seemed to have an unusual bulge protruding from beneath his towel around his crotch.

It's hard to tell what was really going on underneath the cover-up, but suffice to say that Irwin received plenty of attention.

He even joked on Twitter, "Apparently I had a boner in the acceptance video…I love you guys, thanks for everything you do for us, fighting for us, following us, and supporting the music."
