We have all had to adopt a “new normal” this year as we learned to work and live our entire lives at home. For some, this was easy! It simply meant using their computer in a different part of town… albeit in their pj’s. For others, however, the transition wasn’t as easy!
News anchors and reporters are used to a specialized environment.
All the lights and cameras go to set a certain scene, one of excellence and devotion to journalism. When the call to work from home came, however, those magnificently designed sets and scenes weren’t available to go home with everyone! For most, a living room and a green screen were the best you could get.
The result was… hilarious!
You can control the entire environment when you are on a set. At home, good luck! The result was some hilarious moments captured live. Check these out!
Lily wants to say hi!
Plain and simple, you can’t control kids! Lily and her sister decided to crash their dad’s scene while he was in the middle of giving the weather! After getting them off set, they start to cry! The rest of the show was simple done with the added… weather disruption.
Maple the barking dog!
3…2…1…BARK! Every time Meteorologist Scott Connel in St. Louis tried to get his perfect take, poor maple kept ruining it! It was almost as if she was fully aware of what he was going and was going out of her way to mess it up. The eye roll is the best!
Golden retriever invasion!
Brody, the dog, decided that he would learn computer engineering – right when his owner was filming the weather! While in the middle of the cast, he walked up and started hitting the various buttons on the controller. The weather was put on pause that day since Brody broke it!
Classic dad move.
Jessica Lang is a reporter in Sarasota, Florida, and has recruited her family to help her get the news out! Her mom is behind the camera, and her dad is hiding away somewhere… at least he was. Walking out, he is seen putting on a shirt as he enters the scene on live TV!
Nudes or news?
While one man in Spain was on-air, the worst thing happened! A woman in the home with him was seen walking behind the shot. The worst part? She was completely nude!
Just a trim.
While one woman filmed a special on how to cut your hair from home, she had no idea that her husband was VISIBLE taking a shower in the same room! The poor guys had no idea that his wife did him dirty like that.
Drew the “shorts” stick.
Will Reeves was all ready for work with a suit jacket, tie… and no pants! The poor guy didn’t realize that the camera angle was a bit too low, and it was pretty obvious that he wasn’t wearing anything but underwear below the belt.
While these are technically “bloopers,” can we really blame them?
The vast majority of the public totally understands where these reporters are coming from! We are in unprecedented times, and the rules have changed. You just can’t account for everything when you are at home. Maybe just moving forward, check to make sure you are wearing pants before every zoom call, ok?
Check out the hilarious bloopers below!
