If you’re looking for a quick pick-me-up in the middle of your busy day, take a break to recharge and check out these funny videos we came across recently. We’ve all ended up in less-than-stellar workplace situations before — yet, we’re not all forced to deal with them while on live TV. Each of the videos below features a reporter in an equally unforeseen situation while on the air, and hilarity ensues. Take a look, have a laugh and tell us your favorite in the comments below.
3. Snowball fight. While reporting a segment live from the Columbia University campus, this CNN reporter gets pummeled with snow while host Anderson Cooper looks on and thanks his lucky stars he gets to tackle bigger and better assignments.
2. Medical scare. In the midst of taping a live segment about cross-country skiing, a reporter actually passes out for a fleeting moment while her horrified on-air guests have no idea whether to plug their ski resort or call 911. We wouldn’t have found it funny, except that without skipping a beat she continues to report while on the ground as though nothing ever happened. And don’t worry, she’s laughing about it too — we’re laughing with her, not at her.
And the winner is…
1. Unruly intruder. One student at the College of Charleston campus in South Carolina thought it’d be funny if he disrupted a meteorologist’s live on-air report with mischievous antics. Little did he know what he was going up against. Watch this Weather Channel man put him in his place — and then calmly continue his report. Lesson learned: Do NOT mess with meteorologists.
