Sarah Silverman embarks on a topless elevator ride in risqué scene from her previously unseen TV sitcom pilot
Topless drama: Sarah Silverman showed some skin in the pilot for her sitcom Susan: 313 which she posted online on Tuesday and which was never picked up by NBC
Her co-star Harris Wittels also strips in a scene which features the couple - who play neighbours in an apartment block - taking part in some kind of dare.
Bizarrely, they both start taking their clothes off and dropping them from the third floor landing to the ground floor lobby before their elevator ride which is interrupted by a neighbour, played by June Diane Raphael.
'First of all when you and I did this, we were 27 and adorable. when I see someone doing this in my late 30s, it kind of makes me want to call the police,' she tells the embarrassed Susan.

The elevator ride then continues with some crude comments directed at Wittel's character before Raphael tells Silverman: 'Your breasts have held up nicely.'
The sitcom, produced by Ron Howard, was supposed to revolve around Silverman's newly single Susan attempting to return to her old life and her old apartment after ten years away.

And at the end of the pilot, Jeff Goldblum makes an appearance as Susan's ex boyfriend before the twosome strangely engage in a duet at the piano.
'This isn't a "can you believe they didn't pick this up," kind of posting,' the comic says in a clip introducing the episode. 'They probably did the right thing, but we liked the show.
'Enjoy it - trying to do something different,' she adds, while praising studio 20th Century Fox for allowing her to post the footage online.

Not a success? The star has since moved on to film another pilot - HBO comedy People In New Jersey
Silverman has since moved on from her failure and his trying her luck with a new pilot - HBO comedy People In New Jersey - starring alongside Topher Grace and Patti Lupone.
The pilot is described by Deadline.com as a 'hilarious, poignant look at life today as seen through the prism of an adult brother Carl (Grace) and sister Melanie (Silverman) living in New Jersey.
'Carl is an affable locksmith who has a definite idea of how things and people should be and when the world doesn’t conform to his vision, he resists mightily. His sister Melanie (CAA-repped Silverman) is a closet optimist who now works part-time at a department store.
'Their opinionated widowed mother Rachel (Lupone) focuses a lot of her energy on worrying about her children and why neither has settled down in a relationship.
