A worthy interview about international affairs turned into a version of Basic Instinct after Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dačić was flashed by his leggy host.
Dačić was appearing on TV to discuss Balkhan relations when the woman crossed her legs to reveal she wasn't wearing any underwear (the station has censored "the goods", er just about).
The prank was orchestrated by Serbian show Nemoguca Misija (Mission Impossible) and mirrors a scene from the 1992 film in which Sharon Stone does the same thing during a police interview.

To his credit, Dačić keeps his cool during the spicy scene, albeit with a tiny smile playing upon his lips as he sneaks a look.
Earlier preparation for the prank saw the woman wriggling out of her knickers backstage while a suited up Dačić is fitted with a microphone.
The clip has already been viewed 1.2million times on YouTube. As the Mirror points out, we can only hope the figure didn't include Jeremy Paxman looking for new interview techniques.
Dačić was formerly a spokesman for Slobodan Milosevic during the Balkan wars. Nicknamed "Little Sloba" for his admiration of Milosevic, he has embraced a reformist course since being sworn in last July.
