Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, indeed.
A clip of Tim Allen showing his co-star on the set of “Home Improvement” has resurfaced in the wake of Pamela Anderson’s accusation that he did the same to her.
Anderson, 55, claims in her upcoming memoir “Love, Pamela” that she had an alarming on-set encounter with star Tim Allen, now 69, in 1991 when she was 23.
“On the first day of filming, I came out of my dressing room and Tim was in the hallway in his bathrobe. He opened his robe and flashed me quickly – completely naked underneath,” she alleged in his book, according to an excerpt obtained by Variety.
“He said it was only fair, because he saw me naked. Now we are even. I laughed uncomfortably,” she continued.
Allen denied the allegations, saying in a statement, “No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing.”
But now a video of the star showing Patricia Richardson, 71, who played his wife, Jill Taylor, on the show is making the rounds.
In the sketch, Allen is dressed in a kilt, and Richardson said of the kilt, “It’s long, I just wish it was shorter.”
Allen then lifts the kilt – but the camera doesn’t show what his co-star saw underneath.
“People ask me what was under the kilt when he flashed me, he was well dressed under there, I was just shocked that he lifted the kilt, not by a man in boxer shorts”, Richardson told TMZ.
This particular incident happened in front of a live studio audience – making the circumstances markedly different from Anderson’s claims, but a flash nonetheless.
Anderson appeared in the first two seasons of “Home Improvement” as the “Tool Time girl” before leaving for “Baywatch.”
