On Friday, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez addressed the viral Web video that showed him in a state of undress with good perspective and good humor.

Calling the video “a little embarrassing,” Sanchez told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that he’s taken the whole event as a learning experience.

“It’s just a good reminder that you’re in the spotlight … and be ever watchful and careful of who you’re with, what you’re doing,” Sanchez said, per the Daily News.

Sanchez, who’s conducting his “Jets West” workouts this week in California, took another lesson from the video.

“I’ve got to work on my tan lines,” Sanchez joked to the Daily News.

For a heavily scrutinized player in a major media market in an era where the NFL is covered more closely than ever, it’s nice that Sanchez has kept his wit.
