Hey Andy, why don't you play it off. I like to look at your sexy, pale body.
To play it off is when you do something embarassing in front of other people and act like you meant to do it.
1)We leaned out of the car to wave at Sam; however, Sam was not in the car, so we played it off by sticking our hands on top of the car.
2)At an orchestra concert, I put my violin up too early so I played it off by scratching my chin with it.
1) To act as if something which has been brought up as a major occurance is really nothing special.
2) To escape punishment or an uncomfortable situation by denying allegations of involvement, esp. by placing blame on another person

2) Mrs. Lowery accused me of stealing the test key, but I played it off on my home boy Reggie

Most often done when pretending something doesn't bother you that actually does.
The hip, less dramatic way of "being empathetic"
"The guy I like a lot just fucked my best friend, but I played it off like I didn't care."
to act like it didn't happen
"She just told me 'no'"
"That didn't stop Kobe, play it off"
Too divert attention away from something

I was totally freaked to see my ex-old lady there, but I'm cool. I played it off like I didn't care.
To make someone believe that you don't know something, or that something doesn't bother you.

I didn't want her to know I was drinking, so I played it off.
