Two American men were arrested in Thailand Tuesday night after exposing their bare asses in a photo taken inside a Buddhist temple. 

The police apprehended the gentlemen in a Bangkok airport and they will be facing public indecency charges, according to the Associated Press. The men run an Instagram account called “Traveling Butts,” and took their exposing ways a bit too far for Thailand authorities when their photo taken inside the Wat Arun temple spread on social media. 

The men had to pay $150 fines and were then released to immigration officials. Along with the fines, Wisit Suwan, the deputy chief of the Bangkok Yai district police station, has said the men may be charged under Thailands’s computer charges act since they posted the photo on Instagram.

If convicted, they could face up to five years in prison. Keep your shorts on folks.
