Disney+ and Lucasfilm have officially removed the accidental “jeans guy” blooper from The Mandalorian: Season 2, Episode 4 – The Siege.
ComicBook.com spotted that the blooper from last week’s action-packed episode had been erased ahead of this week’s new episode drop. The crew member, lovingly labelled the “jeans guy,” who appeared in the background of a shot with Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), Cara Dune (Gina Carano), and The Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) no longer appears in the scene.

Although his appearance was shortlived, the memories will stay with us forever. Jeans guy became an overnight sensation after several eagle-eyed fans caught sight of his now-infamous blue denims in the corner of the screen at around the 18:52 mark in the episode, with a number of hilarious posts and memes being posted online in the aftermath of his background cameo.
This on-set mistake is similar to the incident that occurred in Game of Thrones: Season 8, Episode 4 – The Last of the Starks when fans spotted a rogue Starbucks coffee cup in one of the shots during the episode. The coffee cup was later digitally removed from the episode for future airings, and HBO issued an appropriately funny response to the error.
The Mandalorian crew member isn’t the only person to have a notable cameo this season. In fact, there has been a whole cast of scum and villainy making appearances throughout the episodes. You can read about those in our slideshow below or you can find out more about this week’s lore-rich episode and three other characters that could potentially make their way into the show.
