Getting struck by lightning is not normally a funny thing. But this little gem of a news blooper on a story about a lightning victim makes it something to laugh about.
Most of the time it’s quite annoying when we’re watching a story that interests us on the news and they start having technical difficulties. But the timing and nature of this error were both just so perfect, I doubt anybody called the station to complain.
As funny as the technical problem is the news anchor’s reaction to it. Surely I’m not the only one who finds it hilarious when someone scrambles for words on live TV.
