WATCH: TV3 weatherman makes it into best news bloopers of the world video
Teresa Mannion, eat your heart out.
An eventful year for telly it certainly has been. With the risk of constant scrutiny on social media paired with the added pressure of live broadcasting – it appears that the position of television presenter has gotten increasingly more difficult with age.
For example, who could forget those two kids who crashed their dad's BBC news interview? Important TV if we've ever seen it.
However, it appears that one of our own has fallen victim to the blooper real. An incident involving TV3's Deric Hartigan and a rather tricky umbrella has been added to a list of the most remarkable on-camera slip-ups of the year.
The clip was picked up by a number of international news stations such as CNN and ODN, and apparently it was deemed funny enough to be counted in the best of the year.
Composed by News Be Funny, this collaboration would bring a smile to even the most Grinch-like of us all. Enjoy.
