This Week in Embarrassing TV: Trans ‘Degrassi’ Character Adam Stuffs Pants With Cucumber

Adam Cucumber DegrassiDespite appealing to a grade and high school audience, Degrassi (formerly Degrassi: The Next Generation), still manages to capture taboo moments in a way that most American shows wouldn’t dare. In last week’s episode, transgender character Adam (Jordan Todosey), who has decided not to tell a girl (for the first date at least) that he’s trans, is approached by his brother.

The brother wonders what happens if she “gets grabby” “you-know-where,” and his advice involves a pickle in the pants.

It just so happens that things do “get hot” and as the girl reaches for the goods, something falls on the floor. In the most embarrassing television moment of 2012, she picks it up, thinking it’s his phone.

“Dude, a pickle fell out of your pants while we were making out, I think I deserve an explanation,” is leopard-print wearing/song-stealing Missy’s classic response.
