The 16 Best Funny News Bloopers That Have Ever Happened
2. Purple Teeny Weeny Wet Willie
Remember when you used to get drunk with your friends and the first person to pass out would get a penis drawn on his forehead? This is basically the live TV version of that prank.
This poor sports reporter was just trying to cover the latest soccer news when some fans in the background decided to get a little, well, frisky. I’m not sure why someone was carrying around a big purple vibrator at the time, but apparently he thought the best way to use it was to try and give the reporter a truly terrifying wet willie. Props to the reporter for not letting the prank break his concentration. Luckily, security was nearby to stop the stunt quickly.
3. Sweet Bike Moves
Sometimes, the background is the best part of a funny news blooper.
I’ll give credit where credit is due; the woman reporting this story is doing a solid stand up for what looks like an otherwise boring story. Luckily for her, and for viewers everywhere, her story gets a lot more interesting thanks to a bicyclist who doesn’t quite seem to have mastered the concept of the sidewalk. I would tell the guy “chin up,” but he’s already chin down in the concrete. That has to hurt.
4. What Is She Hiding?
Anyone have any idea what is going on here?
This live News room blooper still has the world wondering what this news reporter was looking at and then hiding between her legs. It is weird enough that she would be lifting up her dress to look in between her legs in a public setting in general. But to know that the coworker next to you is on live television and still do it, is mind-boggling. Then again, didn’t the cameraman know she was busy? We all know what it sort of looks like, but why in the world would she have anything hidden under her dress while on the clock. her face is absolutely classic and she even fakes like she is looking at her screens right when she realizes she is caught red-handed. I doubt she can even read what’s on her screens anyway. Anyone have any idea what is going on here?
5. Revealing It All….Well Damn Near
Her name is Laila Abid, and she is a Moroccan-Dutch news anchor, journalists, and presenter.
It’s a bit hard to tell whether this amazing news anchor knew whether her chest was as exposed as possible (without being NSFW) or not, but I guarantee the News viewers didn’t care. The gut feeling is that she definitely knew what she was wearing and did so on purpose, which makes it even better. Her name is Laila Abid, and she is a Moroccan-Dutch news anchor, journalists, and presenter.
In 2011 she was named 88th on the Top 100 Most Powerful Arab Women list. Which brings up the initial thought that, “How can an Arab woman dress so scandalously?” It’s quite the opposite of the stereotype dress code that most female arabs are given, even controversial in many minds. What are you thoughts?
6. This Little Piggy…
Do not call women pigs, especially on live TV.
OTS stands for the over-the-shoulder graphics that pop up next to anchors in the newsroom. Depending on the camera being used in the studio, the OTS is programmed to automatically show up on the part of the screen where you don’t see an actual person. Someone didn’t explain this to the tech director at one local news station, so a photo of a pig showed up in place of the face of the female anchor reading the story. Women don’t want to be compared to animals in general, but this is an especially low blow.
7. Uh Ma’am, Is Your Shirt On Properly?
Is This a New Style or a Wardrobe Malfunction?
This jolly news anchor is showing quite a bit of skin while on Live television but only of one breast…I think. It is pretty difficult to tell whether was a fashion statement gone bad or a total wardrobe miscue. The blouse looks to come down quite a bit on her right (our left) side. Either way, it would be an interesting new cast to catch on live TV. Everyone was definitely waiting for something to happen…
8. Idiot Tries to Ruin the Broadcast
This weather reporter dodges an idiot storm while reporting on an actual storm.
Weather reporters go through hell as it is. Any time there’s an extreme storm on the way, they’re put outside in a giant raincoat while the producer – safe in the newsroom – hopes they get blown over by wind or rain because it makes for great TV. The last thing they want to deal with is some loser trying to video-bomb their shot, or what looks like maybe worse. This South Carolina reporter has deflection down to a science. He anticipates the prankster from a few feet away and gets his knee ready for impact. He gives the guy a well-deserved butt kicking.
9. Flying Skateboard
Dude, check out my sweet sk8r moves, dude!
In any other circumstance, this would be a perfectly planned live shot: panning from a dynamic skater riding through the park to a young reporter covering the event. Unfortunately, Mike Amor became part of the story when the skate trick went awry and the skater’s board went flying in his direction. You wish you could watch this gif in slow motion, if for no other reason than to shout “noo!” as a word of warning to Amor.
10. The Erykah Badu Push Aside
Do you have any idea who you just pushed aside? Well, singer-songwriter Erykah Badu, that’s who!
Erykah Badu may already be famous, but that doesn’t mean she can’t still have a little fun on camera. Unfortunately, this TV news anchor wasn’t in on the fun. Granted, she already executes a near-perfect smiling video bomb before trying to take it up a notch my giving the reporter a hug – and possibly a kiss on the cheek. But he pushes her away like she’s just some crazy person on the street! Hey guy, Erykah Badu is probably more famous than you. Show a little respect!
11. Spider-Man “Drops” In
Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is here, rescuing news reporters in need!
Spider Man, Spider Man
Does whatever a spider can.
Can he scare reporters and make them faint?
(I think that’s how the theme song goes.)
This Good Morning America reporter obviously wasn’t having such a good morning when Spider-Man paid her an unexpected visit. That scream is definitely real, but I can’t tell if she actually faints or not. Either way, Spider-Man is there with an ever-so-daring rescue. I just hope Mary Jane didn’t get jealous while watching at home.
12. Get Plowed
While reporting on a recent snowstorm, this reporter missed the big story that was coming up right behind him!
How would you fare against a wave of heavy, dirty snow? Probably not much better than this poor reporter. While reporting on recent snowfall, he didn’t notice the snow plow speeding up behind him. A frozen tidal wave ensues, and for a minute you think the reporter gets knocked clean off his feet. But no! He’s still standing! Given the weather, does that count as a Christmas miracle?
13. Get A Room Already!
Want to watch two mammals get it on on live TV?
A local news station brought two bunnies into their newsroom for a story that completely escapes me. The bunnies, well, proceeded to do what bunnies do best. The reactions of the three anchors are a perfect case study in human behavior. The older guy on the left seems to get the biggest kick out of it. The woman seems to think that if she starts acting prim and proper, it will cancel out the dirty deed going on right in front of her. I’m not entirely sure the younger male anchor knows what’s happening.
14. Serious Butter Fingers
Breaking news: Man drops baby and ball on live TV, and no one notices.
Don’t pay attention to the actual interview happening here. It’s boring. The real blooper beauty is, once again, in the background.
I’ve heard there’s this unofficial “man code” that states whenever someone throws a ball at you, you have to catch it. But if you’re also carrying a baby at the time, I think you let the ball go in favor of making sure you don’t drop your kid head first on the ground.
15. Not So Sneaky
Good technical directors are neither seen nor heard. This guy is a bad technical director.
Apparently, the man in the background didn’t realize the cameras had already started rolling while he was in the studio. So what’s a stunned, camera-shy technical director to do? Stop, drop and… out of there as quickly as possible. Too bad his escape is far from subtle. Luckily, the anchor doesn’t make a big deal about it and continues right on with the story. Too bad nobody’s paying attention to him at this point.
16. Debate Gone Bad
Who expected three old guys to turn a boring news talk show into a WWE showdown?
This isn’t so much a news blooper as it is an unorthodox way to make dry political talk very, very interesting. This clip leaves you with more questions than answers. What could possibly make these three old men so angry? Why was that studio desk so cheap in the first place? Seriously, it came apart faster than my resolve while assembling similar furniture from Ikea. Most importantly, who won the fight? I think we have an answer to that final question: When old geezers fight, the internet wins.
